My name is Elaine Knight, and I live in south Alabama. We (my husband and myself) inherited our property from my grandparents, and we named it "Knight Oaks." This is where we live, work and play.

I love to garden and my husband loves to hunt and fish, so our property is perfect for our retirement years. We have two children and five grandchildren, and it is so much fun to watch our family grow up in the woods. To me the land means "Family," and for that reason it is dear to my heart.



Fall in the Woods
by Elaine Knight - posted 09/23/11

When I first began gardening about 10 years ago, I always looked forward to Spring; however, now I believe that Fall is my favorite season.  I love the cool, crisp mornings, the leaves turning yellow,red and gold, and dividing and transplanting one of my favorite perennials, the daylily.  I also enjoy the wildflowers in the woods this time of the year.  I must admit that I do not recognize them by their scientific names, but they do give this gardener pleasure with their small flowers blowing in the breeze and the rich purple berries that are wonderful for flower arrangements.  And there is also the beautiful walnut tree with its' rich black bark and big green shells that cover the nut.  But be careful when touching the green shell; it will stain your hands for quite a while.  So take a walk in the woods before the days of winter are here and enjoy the beauty of the Fall.
