As part of her Southern Reading Challenge, Maggie is having a Name Your Homeplace Contest. I'm not sure if my entry will count because my homeplace has a name already: Windy Poplars Farm. When I was a girl, one of my favorite books was Anne of Windy Poplars, from the Anne of Green Gables series. Our farm has a lot of poplars, and it is indeed windy up on this hill. Almost every day there is a breeze. After twenty-seven years, the name still delights me.
