The radio waves are filled with holiday songs, so in spite of myself, I have Christmas fever on December 1st!
Over the past couple of years, I have enjoyed many journeys into the foothills and mountains of Western North Carolina. Beautiful scenery with some really extraordinary barn quilts.
On each trip, I ventured a bit farther, and on a clear fall day I found myself passing Christmas tree farms around every turn--each one a wonderful surprise.
This is the perfect combination of barn quilt and setting--the Cline Church Nursery in Ashe County.
If you look to the left of the barn, you can just glimpse the tree-covered hills that stretch into the distance.
These are the Christmas trees of my childhood--I still have most of the ornaments, some older than I am!
If you have never seen 500 acres of Fraser Firs, it's quite the majestic sight.
No decorations needed here--just Mother Nature's beauty at its best.
We were not far from there in Watauga County Sunday. Every other car was a Volvo station wagon with a Christmas tree on the roof . . .ReplyDelete

Thanks, everyone! Glad you like this one. Now I have to find some other Christmas patterns. I am posting all red and green on Facebook this month--that's a bit easier.ReplyDelete
I do have one great Christmas Tree barn quilt that I am saving for right before the holiday.
Wonderful photo, I love the trees but I am enjoying seeing your photos of the quilt barns too. I have never seen such gorgeous barns.ReplyDelete
