Hmmm. From the looks of some of that dirt, I would guess a coastal area. My initial fast guess was Florida?

Would Florida seem to majestic? Would I be so purple-prose about Florida? You really think so?


Second guess: Virginia


Although, I'm wondering about the Carolinas? Am I on the wrong coast?

Stephanie Rigione

hmmm I agree with the person above me. I would say South Carolina? But in the South the oak trees look different, they are Angel Oak I believe.

suvir saran

And what type of Oak Trees do these look like?
What kind of crops do you think this region has?
did you look at the photos in detail?
I know you can see at least two of the three or four crops that are commonly farmed in this area.


As I know nothing about oaks and only recognize corn as one of the crops, I am out of guesses. That one patch of Cape-Cod looking sand still has me convinced this is a coastal area, but I have no idea where!

Is this Georgia?

Is that house Tara?

suvir saran

It is not Georgia my dear Betty.
What is Tara?
tell me more...


Then it has to be the Carolinas, unless it is West coast, which I doubt...

Bonnie Deahl

It does look like the carolinas, especially with the sandy soil, however the trees all look to be deciduous and there are no pines. The Carolinas are full of pines...lots of pines... Could be North Carolina. The oaks along the allee could be many types of oak, so not sure...they are beautiful though.
except for the coastal areas Virginia is full of red clay. I could also say Tidewater area of VA.

suvir saran

It is Virginia.
Sally guessed it a while back.
I was smitten at first glance.
What beautiful trees, what beautiful fields, what beautiful skies and a sense of belonging that permeates everything.
It was as if just being there told me I am in America, and I ought to be very proud of this country and land.
