G is for

Add ImageGlover Park - the square within the Square and named after the town's first mayor, John Glover who donated the land . This picture, taken a few days ago, shows how things are beginning to green up now that spring has arrived.

The gazebo is on the south side under the shade of a large oak tree. That's where Kay and I sat last June for Worldwide Knit In Public Day. Great times!

To the west is the 1916 Glover Machine Works locomotive.

Glover Machine Works played a significant role in industrializing the South after the Civil War.

Speaking of the Civil War (which never seems to be too far away), just behind the locomotive is the Gone With the Wind Musuem.

I've never been inside, but it houses the original Bengaline gown from the movie worn by Vivien Leigh as Scarlett on her honeymoon in New Orleans.

We even have a gym. Hum.....never been in there either!
It was a great day to get out on the Square and take a few pictures.

Thought of your alphabet today when it was all "gray skies" here in Atlanta. We were at the aquarium seeing a "great white" shark.

I love this post. A Gone With the Wind Museum?????
What a wonderful thing. Maybe I'll get to see it one fine day.
Good to see the sun shining in Georgia, too!
