Banjos, Butterflies and Blueberries


Yesterday was a busy day at NDP.  Michael and I drove up to Madison Creek Farm, host of Banjos, Butterflies and Blueberries.  The Howling Brothers (above) supplied the banjos via their music.  The flowers (and nature) supplied beautiful butterflies.  The farm supplied blueberries (mostly in pies).

The 38-acre farm is located in Goodlettesville, a little north of downtown Nashville.   The farmhouse (The bros. are on the farmhouse porch.) was built in 1919, although there have been two additions.  Visitors are welcome to stroll the grounds and walk through the vegetable, flower and herb gardens.  Madison Creek Farm is dedicated to organic farming and uses no pesticides or herbicides.  The many flowers on the property were beautiful.

Tomorrow, I'll show you a little of what we did later in the day.

The Howling Bros. Love the name and their picture.

The farm has a nice website, and it looks like the music was good.

Sounds like a great escape and a place to let you hair down.

The big question that inquiring minds want to know is How was the pie?

Blueberry is my absolute favorite pie, you can have apple or raspberry or pumpkin pie; give me blueberry every time.

Sorry, clueless. . . . .I don't eat stuff made with sugar, so I didn't try the pie. I heard it was good, though. Later this week, I'll have a photo of blueberries growing on the farm.

Hi Chris, I haven't been visiting in a while and I hope your arm is better! This is a great photo - I can hear the music from here.

Ha - great minds think alike about music. Thanks for visiting my blog.
If you like your blueberries cooked without sugar, microwave for about 20 seconds and add a little half and half. That's going to be my dessert tonight.

Mama and Daddy drove out that way when they were camping around Nashville, back in the late 1970s or early 1980s. They enjoyed the drive. Love that Howling Brothers!
