Maybe the 3rd time will be the charm

When I was in Little Switzerland with the camera club we were told twice that the rhododendrons were blooming on Roan Mountain. I’ve always wanted to see that so Judy and I took off (the long route per my GPS) but we were too early at the end of June.

I told my hubby I wanted to go back mid-July. Well his back has been extra horrible this year and then he got a cold that just wouldn’t go away then I went thru a few days of extreme dizziness for no reason. Then between those things and the rain when we did go on the first day of summer- we were too late and the rhododendron garden was past peak.

Biltmore House- twice in 2 months

I’ve been to the Biltmore House I think 4 times in my life. Once with my hubby. Once as a treat to mom for Mother’s day and twice as a guest. The last two times have been since Biltmore allowed photography inside.

Couldn’t resist the horses

We’ve been pushing so hard on building our new smaller home that I haven’t picked up my camera for fun in ages. Then the local camera club announced a few months ago it was going to Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC). I love horses almost as much as cats and I had to go- I mean it was only half a day and we’ve been in plenty of 12 hour work days.

I developed my photos over the next few Sundays but didn’t want to share until after the camera club showed their slideshow. It’s quite an amazing place!


Now back to photographing items I am listing for sale on SellingVille.com  as we get ready to move NEXT MONTH!
