Wildflowers, Pure Delight

North Carolina Wildflowers
Alongside the road, thousands of wildflowers dancing in the sunshine... Pure delight.

"The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers."

Green Curves, NC-151

Over Steven's Shoulder
Another lovely ride up the Blue Ridge Parkway and down the very green curves of NC-151, through Hominy Valley and then home...

The road is alive,
And so are we.

Green Hwy 151
"Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come."

Spring on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Mt. Pisgah Visibility
There are no words to describe the absolute beauty of today's ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We had a made-to-order day--sunshine, blue skies, visibility, and the colors of Spring finally bursting through.

Best way for us to enjoy Spring? Aimlessly wander and soak it all in.
Spring Colors Kiss the Blue Blue Sky

Coming Out of the Tunnel, in the Mirror
Me, in the rear view mirror, taking the shot. I just keep shooting and hope for some magic in the light room. I am always pleasantly surprised.
