Switch grass

If you have not been to the Archibald Smith Plantation in Roswell, you should make a visit.  The house is a wonderful journey into times past and a peek into the life of one of Roswell’s founding families.  Outside, you can stroll across the grounds which have been cared for by Master Gardeners of Roswell.

Down the hill from the main house is a stream where the Spring House is located.  This is where perishables were stored in the coolness provided by the water.  The surrounding area is planted with ferns and bog plants and grasses such as the switch grass shown in this image.  The area has a natural feel to it that makes you want to sit and ponder the beauty of the scene.  In December, even on a pleasant day with the temperature in the 5o’s, you pretty much have the place to yourself so, this is a great time to go.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
