After our sobering visit to Carnton Plantation, we were caught in a serious storm. Luckily, it was almost time for lunch, and we waited out the rain with delicious food from Puckett’s in front of us. Wish I had taken pictures of that place — marvelous!
In the afternoon, we left Franklin to visit another plantation. No war history here; the farm (at one time 5,400 acres) raised Thoroughbred horses. Yes, in the late 1800s horse racing was great sport!
This page is pretty straightforward. I wanted to use the En Franςais stamp as a background because the plantation’s name is French (for “beautiful meadow”). Delicate sprigs from the Always stamp set were “stamped” in various opacity settings and rotated or mirrored.
More next week on Belle Meade.
