Merry Christmas From the Farm



P. Allen Smith's Garden Home Retreat is centered on axis with a goliath centuries-old post oak in the Arkansas River Valley

This past weekend, I took my mom to our annual Foster family Christmas gathering in Little Rock, AR and we stayed at my cousin's farm and garden retreat in the country.  The gathering represents about four generations of my grandmother's family.



The Greek-revival farm house is newly built - but my cousin went to painstaking efforts to make sure the architecture was faithful to the mid-ninteenth century pre-Civil War homes that would have been found in this farming valley.  The garden retreat is often used in his syndicated television shows and gardening books.


Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!
