This year the trees look so colorful to me and I like the contrast with their dark black branches! I didn’t have to go far for these pictures either, they were taken in my backyard! And here is the same photo painted in the Waterlogue App…….. And the yellow-leaved branches really are show offs too……….

Jo’s Monday Walk: Sandhills Horticultural Gardens

My last two posts have featured photos of Pinehurst and Southern Pines, NC,  deemed two of the best small towns to live, in North Carolina. I really, really like small town life.

Jo’s Monday Walk: Savannah, Georgia

It’s summer and we must have a  see of Savannah and all it has to offer! What is it about Savannah? Is it the Savannah River that draws our attention? Or the old warehouses to explore along the waterfront? Or the riverboats and cobblestoned streets? I think it is the Spanish moss hanging from the…

The Desert Garden: A Garden With Free Sunscreen

Last week I showed you some photos of my small town. Today, December 28th, it is absolutely a spring day, (high 60’s) so I am strolling the campus of Davidson College, the town’s backbone.
