Gardening Art In Tennessee

Looking for fun gardening things to do?

See why this 1887 oil painting strikes a chord with so many Tennessee gardeners–and where you can see pioneer tools and art at the downtown Tennessee State Museum.

This free museum is one of the most fun things to do in downtown Nashville.

Taking Photos Of Opryland’s Christmas Lights Display

Where is the best place in Nashville to take a Christmas photo?

You may be surprised to find that it’s NOT the Opryland Hotel! The Opryland Hotel has all kinds of fun, free things to do for Christmas in the Nashville area–but its dark conservatories and artificial lighting make picture taking hard.

Never been to the Christmas light display at Opryland? I’ve included a YouTube video that shows Opryland’s Christmas lights in all their greenhouse glory!

Here are some tips about visiting Opryland’s Christmas light display–and where I think makes the best spot for photos in the Opryland Hotel.

How To Find Tennessee Foods and Farms

I love the Pick Tennessee Products website! It tells you how to find great TN products, local farms and farmer’s markets, local meats, dairy and cheese and much, much more!

Let me show you five ways I used the Pick TN Products website last year in my own life.

Cut Your Own Christmas Tree At Local Tennessee Farm

Are you looking for a cut-your-own Christmas tree farm in the Nashville area?

The Pick TN Products website has a great directory with lists of local tree farms and stands, including those close to Nashville in Pleasant View, College Grove, Gallatin, Murfreesboro and Lebanon.

Locally grown Christmas trees are better for the environment because they prevent erosion in rocky TN soil and reduces transportation costs.

TWRA Winter Trout Stocking Schedule

TWRA will stock the Harpeth River with trout again this year after last year’s phenomenal success. We have the dates for stocking the Harpeth River in December, January, February and March–along with information about where to park and where to wade.

We also have photos and information about winter stocking at Marrowbone Lake and a list of all the TWRA winter stocking locations and dates for the 2007-2008 calendar.

Sending HoneyBaked Hams For Christmas

The Honeybaked Ham Store in Brentwood is a great place to order holiday gifts. I’m ordering a gift certificate for someone, so I needed to find a Honeybaked Ham coupon code and a cute way to package the gift certificate.

The Honeybaked Ham Store in Brentwood is located just off Franklin Rd. in the shopping center with Wild Iris and the Lacrosse Store.
