I don’t know what time zone my body thinks we’re on right now, but I woke up at 5 this morning. By 630 I decided to get out of bed and grab some shots around the house. When we got into Macon Saturday night it was dark – we didn’t get to look around the yard and neighborhood until yesterday. It’s absolutely charming here, and I suspect my photographer friends back in Bozeman may be a little jealous!
Across the alley from our sprawling back yard is an empty lot. Ivy covers the ground and wraps around the trees – it’s absolutely lovely. There’s a partial brick wall and some steps that are quite aesthetically pleasing too! An old tree has pushed a good chunk of the wall out of place. It’s rubble really. Beautiful, photogenic rubble that has this photographer squealing with delight!
Also, just two lots from our house, Historic Macon established a Neighborhood Tree Nursery. So essentially there’s a park on the same block as our house!
I’m going to build an extensive garden in our back yard, intending it to be a source of food and loveliness for us, as well as a potential location for photos. I look forward to planning our garden, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the pre-existing backdrops right outside our door!
