Hayfield at Bell Mont Mansion, Tuscumbia

Pasture at Belle Mont Mansion, Tuscumbia, Alabama This photograph was taken a few weekends ago in front of the Bell Monte Mansion near Tuscumbia, Alabama. You can barely see it in the distance at the top of the hill. I'm sorry to say that I have never toured the house and that is something I really should do one day. It is one of the few examples of Palladian-style houses in Alabama. It was built in 1828 and is owned by the Alabama Historical Commission. All that information and you can't see the house in my photo. But isn't the pasture lovely? Text and photos by Phillip Oliver, Dirt Therapy

  1. This is something I have always thought about whenever I pass the place but never checked into it. I didn't know it was open to the public. If you decide to go, I would love to go with you.

  2. A beautiful shot that looks very fall-like. I think you should tour the house sometime. I would love to hear all about it.

  4. I love the hay rolls. They add another dimension, like accidental topiary.
