Five days off from work, and goodness knows I need the break, we decided to take a last summer trip of the year to NC. It is just delightful up here. One morning we woke up to temperatures in the 60’s. I had to run into town one day to pick up a shower curtain liner and another hummingbird feeder and it was
warm hot down there.
We took a drive on the Parkway and went up to the Pisgah Inn. They have the most gorgeous Mountain Ash trees. They seem to be more vibrant this year than last.
The day I drove into town I noticed a field where someone plants poppies that bloom in May. It is quite gorgeous when the red poppies are blooming with blue batchelor’s buttons blooming amongst them. This time there were lots and lots of orange flower (Tommy thinks they may be a type of poppy) with purple, pink and white flowers intermixed. I convinced Tommy to take me down there one morning so I could get some shots.
