Trying to get up to speed on our new city is taking time, but it is time well spent. If we have house guests, we want to have fun places and interesting sites to show them. One way to get a well-rounded view of Savannah is to take one of the trolley tours. You will hopefully get a beautiful day and a well versed guide! Savannah is an intimate city and very easy to see on foot, but on your first day, you might want to get a general overall impression from the comfort and charm of a trolley bus, and then take it from there, exploring on foot. Today dear husband and I set out to visit the Telfair Museum.

Almost anywhere you are in the historic district, you will find a square beckoning – Sit here! Relax! Watch the people! Listen to the music (so often a musician will be there playing for your pleasure)! There are three components and buildings to visit that are part of the Telfair organization. When I know more, I will pass it on, but for a glimpse inside an old Savannah mansion, start at the Telfair Academy. Right now, the exhibit on the third floor is

JUNE 7, 2013 – JULY 6, 2014
I hope to share more with you in future blogs – all in good time. Because as you know, I’ve now got a small place to plant and weed! It takes time – more time well spent! My little plot now has a few tomato plants and a pepper and some herbs. I planted sunflowers on Monday evening, and they were germinated by tonight! I’ve used landscape cloth to keep the weeds down, and covered with the mulch used predominantly here – pine needles. Wish me luck, as it is starting to get HOT here in Georgia. Oh, another reason to visit Georgia in June? The farm stands that pop up are AMAZING! Juicy peaches, rich, ripe tomatoes, sweet corn and boiled peanuts!!
