Solar Eclipse

A total solar eclipse!  Exciting!  Actually, we’re just a few miles west of the total eclipse viewing area, so while we didn't get the full experience of a total eclipse, it did get dusky.  Patrick even drove home from work to experience it!

The day was memorable also because Roy and Ruby came out with his tractor to mow the field!  Roy has cattle near McCormick, SC and Hendersonville, NC.  Ruby is his sweet, steadfast companion.  Such a sweet dog! Sophie and Ruby had much fun playing and wrestling.

So, Sophie, Ruby, Patrick and I watched the hardworking Roy bale hay while waiting for the eclipse.  We hope Roy and Ruby come back to visit again soon!


Sitting on the porch that is the definition of home-grown comfort, Amy brought out a dish of pecans to snack on with our lavender iced tea. The pecans were sweet with a hint of salt and ... smoked! (Patrick throws a lot of stuff on the grill and in the smoker and the results are always spectacular.) The pecans were like heaven.

Between the lavender everywhere, the porch, the view, the company, and the pecans, we might just as well have been in heaven.

You'll want to go back again and again!

Among the gardens and 100-year-old farm house is a picturesque red barn where Amy and Patrick not only sell their merchandise but also entertain and/or put on workshops. I have had the pleasure of attending several of these events ranging from cookie making, to lavender harvesting and arranging, to yoga classes.

I am always looking for what they have available because once you experience the sheer beauty and peaceful feel of White Hills Farm you too will want to go back again and again.

For me, it's a place tied to fond memories

White Hills Farm is the perfect backdrop for any occasion -- it has this way of enveloping and elevating meaningful celebrations. For me, it's a place tied to fond memories and an eagerness to return. Year round, its something to behold, a slice of heaven run by the best of people.
