Yesterday, I went to the historic home site on the property of the Nashville Zoo.  It was the 200th anniversary of the home, built in 1810.  I went with Ruth, who knew the last residents, the two sisters who gave the 200 acre farm in the city to Nashville as a way of protecting the land from industrial developers.  The Zoo now occupies much of the property, but the house, garden, cemetery, and barn are set apart by an enclosure of woods. The gardens were quite vibrant.  Below is a gooseberry bush.
