I Live Here

Southern Cotton

Photo by Cora Phillips @ Heartfelt and Homemade
“Sweet Home Alabama”…There’s nothing simpler than the south. Southern charm, grits, sweet tea, cotton fields, humidity, fried green tomatoes, dirt roads, and hospitality.
Just good old Southern Living at it’s best. I live in Ozark, AL. which is in the lower southeastern corner of the state. I sometimes refer to it as living in LA…Lower Alabama. Y’all come for a visit and see for yourself!

“..My home’s in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head…southern born and southern bred.” ~Randy Owen & Teddy Gentry

  5. Gorgeous! It looks like the whole picture is on fire!

    I went to an Alabama Farewell Tour concert and they were as fabulous as they were twenty years before.

  8. This photo is wonderful. You have a painterly eye. Do you paint as well as develop photos that look like paintings?

    I'm a fellow Alabamian. Nice to meet you.

  9. Yes I do paint...mostly watercolor and junk!
    Junk meaning...I repurpose junk thrift store finds and make new treasures out of them which I sell!
    Nice to meet all of you here on lens.us.together! Thanks for the wonderful comments!
