I have been going out for a daily walk early in the morning before the twins get up. What a pleasure it has been...the beauty of the morning, creation, and the renewing of my mind. It has proved to be very challenging around here with so many hills. I have a nice case of shin splints as a result of the hill work. I decided to take along my camera to document all the beauty there is to behold. I make it a point to mailboxes, because I think, one day, they will be a thing of the past. The mailboxes are beautifully decorated here.
Unlike New Mexico, which is dry with lots of desert plants, North Carolina has a lot of trees. When we first visited my son, Luke, I was surprised to see white squirrels in the trees behind their house. Warren, my husband, jokingly claimed Luke's house was built on a previous nuclear waste sight, hence the white squirrels. Later, I learned there are a few spots where these unique squirrels populate the forests...Hendersonville is one of them. One of these days, I might be able to get a photograph of one instead of the sign.
