Rooting for Stone Mountain

"Not a lot takes root up in that big old rock of Stone Mountain"...these were the words at the beginning of a newscast today from an Atlanta TV station.  Well, I beg your pardon!  I think that WSB needs to start reading my blog, don't you?   (The photo below is from September 9th of last year.)  These are the Yellow Daisies and I can't wait to see them this year.  I have heard that they are already blooming on top of the mountain!

  4. We've been to Stone Mountain and while we didn't see these beauties as it was in November, we did see lots of growth. Obviously, a misstatement.

    1. Oh! We climbed Stone Mountain the day after Thanksgiving one year, and watched the sunset! The pines that you see on top of Stone Mountain are much older than they look, and are beautiful!

  10. I suggest informing them of Richards photography and your opinion, although I know how shy you are.
    Not much blooms or takes root but a great deal can do and you have evidence!

    1. I once had someone ask me, "Oh, are you one of those TREE-HUGGERS?" The answer was "YES!". I think everyone should be!

  12. What a lovely photo! I think you should email it to the silly station.

    1. Thanks, Kristi! Richard sent an email with a link to my blog and left a comment on facebook, but I didn't think of attaching this photo to an email. Good idea!

  13. I love the photo of you 'midst the bluebells in England. My mom used to have bluebells at her back door in Avondale Estates and I frequently wonder if they're still there. They were planted by my grandmother once when she visited GA, so they always reminded us of her. Have you ever seen the bluebonnets in central Texas in March? The roads there are loaded with them (thanks to Lady Bird Johnson) and I hope you see them one day if you haven't already. Dave in DC

    1. Hey David!
      Thanks so much for your comment!! I have never seen bluebells here in the USA! That photo was taken in May of 2010 by Christopher, and the bluebells were late blooming that year, so that was the FIRST time we had ever seen them!
      Oh! And if you scroll down to the bottom of my blog, you will see a painting of Lady Bird and a quote by her, she is one of my HEROES! Never seen those bluebonnets in Texas but I would love them, I know.

  14. I would love to see Richard's photographic magic in those rolling Texas hills covered with bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes!! It really is wonderful to behold. Dave

    1. Richard's photographic magic...yes, that is exactly so! Do I have your permission to use your words to describe this on my blog? I love that!!
      Would love to see those wildflowers in Texas. You know we love flowers, but wildflowers are so special!
      Thanks so much for commenting!
