Blue Plum is Calling You Home – a brief photo travelogue to make our author homesick



by Kath Rutledge
from the Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries by Molly MacRae


Take a look. These pictures are some of the reasons people love visiting Blue Plum, Tennessee, and why those of us who live here feel lucky.










layers of mountains 
life in the tiniest places


mossy creeks, rushing water

the top of the world

clear, clear mountain creeks

mountain meadows

incredibly cute park in the middle of town

inviting porches

streetscapes on a cozy scale

wildflowers

pie

Our author lived in this part of the world for almost twenty years. Is it any wonder she misses it? What places do you miss?

    1. It was a great place to live (the real life Jonesborough, Tennessee, where I took these pictures) and to raise our children.

    1. In and around Jonesborough, the oldest town in Tennessee. It's up in the northeast corner. We lived there for about twenty years and don't get back nearly often enough.

  7. Those are gorgeous photos. I can see why you would miss views like that. Even though I have lived my whole life within a 60 mile radius of where I was born, strangely enough, I do have a place that I "miss". On a tour of South America taken some 30+ years ago, we drove through the alto-plano, or high plains region of Peru. While it was somewhat bleak, dry and cold (it was their winter), I just felt as if I "belonged" there. Hmmm.......maybe in another life....
