step back in time

It was a great day to enjoy the fall at Malabar Farm. For those of you not familiar with the Mansfield, Ohio area I call home, this was the home of the Pulitzer Prize winning author Louis Bromfield. This was a favorite retreat for people like Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

My mother in law was a good sport and posed with the friendly natives. We moved at a relaxed pace just taking in all of our surroundings.

All of our senses experienced a step back in time. From the beautiful fall setting, to the farm smells, to the home made textiles to the cold sarsaparilla and home made corn bread and bean soup cooked in a huge kettle over an open fire. It was a great way to spend a Saturday!
