This year, even though there was a brisk and cold wind blowing while we were there, we did not see any snow... I am featuring two of my favorite pictures for you today from this trip to Cedar Breaks... I love seeing the gorgeous Engelmann Pine trees in this park. However, beetles have destroyed many of them.. BUT--the good news is that these pines come back quickly--as you can see when looking at my blog post photo today..
Hope you enjoy these two pictures ---and hope you will stop by my Joyful Reflections Blog next week to see much more from our fabulous Western Trip...
Have a fantastic October!

|Layers and layers of colors in the Great Smoky Mountains, October 2016|
My pictures today (header and post picture) were taken in October of 2016 on our trip to see the Autumn Colors in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. I hope that we can see more of this beauty this Fall.... I'm looking forward to the Autumn Colors (but not raking the leaves)... ha ha
Have an awesome September, my Friends.

|SUMMER SURPRISE ROSE in our Yard, 7/25/17|
Today I'm featuring two of our 2017 ROSES growing in our yard for YOU.... The header at the top is named FLAMINCO and it is new to our yard this year. Isn't it just gorgeous?? AND the one featured on this post is named SUMMER SURPRISE. The colors of these two roses are similar --but they are very unique and different, one from the other....
Thanks to George and his hard work taking care of the roses (trying to keep the deer away especially). I really do get to enjoy seeing all of them blooming. No two rose is ever alike, even the ones on the same bush... Don't we wish that people were more like roses? The Roses just BLOOM and never complain or compare themselves to other roses... Each one knows that he/she is beautiful and unique.
Have an awesome AUGUST, my Friends.

|DIZZY Lilies in our Yard|
The Lily in the header header (at the top) is named STARGAZER... I love this lily. I didn't notice the critter on the lily until I posted it on here. Can you see it?
The photo in this post is another of my favorite lilies, named DIZZY.... I enjoy seeing our Lilies individually --but also enjoy them in groups!
Hope you enjoy seeing both of these pretty LILIES in our yard.
Have a wonderful JUNE, my Friends.

Today I will share two pictures for you... The header at the top was taken on 1/17 at TREMONT... I love sitting by the creek enjoying the beautiful Rhododendrons by the water...
The other picture was taken on 1/18 at GREENBRIAR. Again, there are Rhododendrons along the creek bank. But--I also love seeing the little bridge crossing the creek.
Hope you enjoyed a couple of pictures from 'our' SMOKIES!!!!! They are just so gorgeous!
