Life in the Holler: A cobbler on the vine



2012-05-20 - The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne. I have to laugh, when I hear on food gurus talking on the radio about urban gardens and foraging for food.

Besides being nectar for honeysuckle honey - sometimes wish I had time for bees - they lend an incredible perfume to the night air, especially in our secluded holler, where the higher humidity enhances the smell. - Shamarie
