Those red berries against that blue sky! It was breathtaking! I wonder how many people walked underneath this beauty and never saw it. If you notice petals or berries at your feet, please remember to LOOK UP, you just don't know what you might miss. This is a pyracantha. I have one with orange berries but I must say that I would love to have this red one.
Another beautiful bush that I think a lot of people might miss at Stone Mountain has the wonderful name of Beautyberry. Wonder what it might look like? Wonder no more, here it is! Can you see the ladybugs? I didn't until I saw this on my computer! This bush is at the top of Stone Mountain and is right in front of the building for the sky-lifts and people just walked right past this without a glance, but you know this Georgia Girl didn't! By the way, I took the close-up photos of both of these plants!
There are always visitors from all over the world on top of Stone Mountain. I found that someone had written this in black marker and while I don't approve of people defacing the mountain, I did wonder what this said...could anyone translate for me? I hope that it is a nice thought and nothing that would offend anyone!
The leaves were just turning on these trees near the Grist Mill at the lake which is just beside the Cherokee Trail.
We did make it to the top of Stone Mountain! That's Richard looking out over the mountain, and that's me in my pink shirt, again!
Hope y'all are enjoying all the colors of this season, wherever you are in the world!
