Three more photos from Andalusia:
one of the out buildings on the farm - sad to see that several barns are not being preserved or maintained at all.
a peacock - so beloved by O'Connor, at one time she had over 100 peafowl on the place. She loved all fowl, as a matter of fact - sometime I'll tell you the home economics class story.
her bedroom - perhaps originally a parlor, it's to your immediate right as you come in the front door. You can see her crutches propped up against the wardrobe. Her actual desk and typewriter are at Georgia College and State University in town (yes, we saw them, too). The rooms are dark, almost dreary, but in the sweltering hot Georgia summers, I'm imagining that would make it seem cooler.
