My Trip So Far - In Pictures

I'm really enjoying my time back home in Georgia. It's been hot, but I'm really enjoying the weather anyway. Reminds me of my summers growing up here :-) Here's the view out of my window at my sister's house. I love looking out at all of that green!

This is a clump of spanish moss that my other sister brought home from Savannah. We were wondering if it would take root and grow since we live further north. Well, as you can see it's still thriving and it has been at least a decade or more since it was brought here. I love experiments that work ;-)



This is a plant that is native to the region and it is called butterfly root . It grows wild around here. According to one of my sisters, our grandmother used to make a tea out of this back in the day for medicinal purposes. I just love the pretty orange flower.




This is my sister's birdhouse. The photo came out a little washed out, but you get the idea. My sister LOVES birdhouses. I think that's cool. If I were a bird, I'd love to drop in here from time to time :-)




This is a photo that I took yesterday. I just love looking up through the canopy of leaves. The sun was making its presence known.


Now, I'm heading out to take more photos and enjoy the day. I hope you have a great day wherever you are! Until next time...

Great pics!! Glad to hear that you are having a great time and are coping with the hot weather, though having lived in England now for a number of years I would imagine you are well used to that!! ;-)

Hello Dori,

Love those pics. Anything regarding nature will catch my eye. :-)

Emm said...

Oh, it just looks beautiful like I thought that it would. I would love to visit there one day but I don't think a short holiday would be enough (secretly, I just wish I could move to the US!)

I stumbled across your blog while searching for "green marketing". I understand yours is a personal blog, keep your posts coming!

I especially love the first pic from the window and how everything outside is GREEN.

Wow. Kudos!

Do soak up all the time you have in GA. There's no place like home.

Brit Boy,
Glad you like the pics. You know me well ;-)

Jacqueline,
Me too...I love nature. It just fascinates me. We have a lot in common :)

Emm,
I'm so glad you enjoyed taking a peek at what it's like where I come from. It is very beautiful and green :) I hope that you get the chance to visit one day...and have a good long visit :)

Alison,
So glad you enjoyed them :) I'll have more coming!

RE-Entrepod,
Thanks! :) Probably won't make it to Sweet Auburn this time. I've loved going in the past though. You're so right...there's a lot to see there. I hope you have a great weekend lady!

Expat Medical Insurance,
Wow! I'm so glad that you found my blog and commented. Thanks so much! Yes, it's very green. I love that view :)

Se'lah,
Absolutely! :) You are so right. It has been great to be here!

Hey Shae,
It surely is. I'm astonished at how green everything is. I had forgotten :) I won't forget anymore.

Vchelle,
It has been hot, but I'm with you...I'm loving every minute of it :) It hasn't bothered me at all. I guess that my body is soaking it all up while it can. LOL. You are so sweet, thanks dear, and I'll say the same to you, even when I'm back across the Atlantic, just know that you have someone there thinking of you too! And you are always welcome :)

Tink,
Thanks! Yes, it has been a great trip :)

Lis,
Thank you! :) Oh wow, okay, I will pick up the tag when I get back home. I love this! :)

Nothing like being back home among family members and old friends. Sounds like a great time.

Dori said...

Kicha,
It truly was a great time! I saw SO many people that I hadn't seen in many years. It was a true homecoming! :)
