    I am guessing this thread should go here...

    As we have driven around countrysides looking at property, I have noticed folks have named their parcels. So I was just wondering...

    What names yall have given to your slices of heaven?

    "Campo Sol" named for our most abundant resource :) We have a huge concrete half sun with rays at our entrance. That sucker took us months of back - breaking work but it is a sight to see.

    Hickahala Ranch

    The north property line of our 96 acres runs down the middle of the Hickahala Creek. Plus, we have horses (or will if hubby ever gets the fences built...the horses are currently boarded elsewhere) so hubby says we're a ranch, not a farm.

    To explain why I am wandering around outside at midnight, filling waters and raking and whatever other tasks I didn't get to during "normal" hours.

    After much thought and going back and forth--We ended up with the 5T Ranch --DH wanted to name it "Peice of Nothing Farm". When we purchased it, all the barns, builds were falling down, copperheads were the main thing that grew here and there were cuckoburrs and morning glories everywhere... Not much of nothing!!! But I wanted something else.
