It's spring in full force here with dogwoods blooming and azaleas too, and the big old house is just as magical as it always is. The stables have been empty the past two visits but there are horses here again and all afternoon into the early evening the sounds of whinnies came up through the open veranda door. It feels like home.
This is a photo of the huge photo montage that is in the "hunt room" - the Boyds, who originally built and lived in Weymouth, were huge foxhunting people, and the hunt room is a tribute to that part of their lives here. Even as recently as February of this year, the Moore County Hounds set forth from Weymouth grounds on one of their hunts. It's a wonderful tradtition and why it's so nice to hear the whinnies again.
