Scenes from North Carolina, Florida and Georgia

- So often when I don't have a photo ready, I return to my library and find something soothing like this.  It makes me want to jump in the car and go.  Hiwasee River, Clay County, North Carolina.

- Or this one, on a day when I was in the car with niece Amanda, driving through the plantation where she works.  I love the Spanish moss dripping from the trees.  Razor Lake, Jefferson County, Florida.

- There are miles and miles of cotton fields like this in south Georgia.  I always think of that commercial jingle that called cotton, "the fabric of our lives."  It's my favorite fabric!  Somewhere along State Route 300, aka the Georgia-Florida Parkway.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends!  And I hope you will take time to say a kind word or give a compliment to someone who is not expecting it.  It will make their day.

There is always something peaceful about a river or lake.

Have a lovely weekend Lynn. :)

I want to visit that river, too. It exudes peace. I love me a random act of kindness. I do them whenever the opportunity presents. :)

That Spanish Moss is so gorgeous!

The Elephant's Child -

I love that - thank you.

Granny Annie -

Good - I had nothing for this morning, so took a walk through my Picassa library.

I'll see your blog shortly to see that compliment.

Joe -

I think so, too. And you, too!

happygirl -

I'm glad you do that - I think people need it.

Mama Zen -

I never understands how it get there, but I love it, too.

I have never seen a cotton field, nor Spanish moss. It all seems so exotic to me.

Chatty Crone said...

I have never seen a cotton field to be honest. But I have seen Spanish Moss and wish it would grow up here too. Nice photos.

Riot Kitty said...

That second picture looks like it's right out of a novel.

You do have some wonderful place pictures to dig out. Very peaceful to look at. I can almost hear the babbling water. I tried taking some moss home from Florida once, but it didn't live long here. Pretty stuff.
Cotton will always be my fav too, except the ironing part for blouses. I had to do that for a restaurant job daily for years. But all my home clothes are cotton now. Flannel shirt weather here again- so cozy.

A coworker came back from a 2-week vaca to visit with her Mom. I told her seeing her again was the best part of my day- it was!

Hope your week-end is full of ramdom complimemnts to you also!

Hi Lynn .. love the photos - and I'd love to visit all those places - they look idyllic.

I can only wear cotton ... it's a nuisance - so I'm delighted to see the cotton fields!

Have a great weekend ... cheers Hilary

Sparkling Red -

I love the moss and cotton has made a big comeback in Georgia the last few years. It's awesome to see it growing.

Sandie -

Just head down I-75 south and you'll see it by the side of the expressway.

Riot Kitty -

I know - I could just see it as the cover of a bodice ripper. :)

Lynn said...

Snaggle -

I'll bet your coworker glowed when you said that and it's lovely that it was genuinely said.

Hilary -

I always wish I could travel more, but if I just look around me, I'm surrounded by so much loveliness.

sage said...

Beautiful photos as always. I like the Florida photo, cypress and spanish moss reminds me of Eastern NC!

Lynn said...

Sage -

I haven't really been to the North Carolina coast - I've always wanted to visit. This comment inspires me.

Jannie Funster said...

I think of that song too!! The fabric of our lives. Which has a melody not 100% dissimilar to "Gilette,the best a man can get." :)

You sure get around to some gorgeous places in those 3 States. I've not been to the NC coast either. Spent a LOT of time inland tho, not too far from Raleigh.

I thin I'll go tubing on that first river now, see ya when I get back.
