Good pictures. Are they recent though? There's no snowbanks?

Taken yesterday. :-) Where we live, we rarely have snow.

Y'all may be a little farther south than I am (Atlanta). Blossoms on my peach trees look a little more closed last time I looked.

I am not southern by birth, but in the south by the grace of God. It's reaaal purty here!! So many gracious people. But there is so much about the South I don't understand and people don't give away its secrets easily, especially to yankees.

I have loved gleaning them (the south's secrets) over the past 10 years. You know, we yanks were raised to believe you all were slow. I ain't kiddin! We can't help how we been raised...forgive us while we get a life. (Sorry, just reacting to the fried chicken law.)

Lovely pictures!Blessings to you all day, Rose

By the way, should you EVER want to know anything about a yankee...

KWombles said...

:-) Thanks, Rose. We're about 1 degree south of Atlanta.

I enjoyed your reaction to the chicken fried initiative!

My parents are transplanted yankees, too. Led to all sorts of confusion growing up for me. Bread dressing versus cornbread dressing. Unsweetened versus sweetened tea. Potato salad made with mayo versus mustard. :-)

So pretty! {seething jealousy}

It's okay...my peppermint is just starting to send up little green shoots...I'll make it. :)

Honey, but you seem SO SOUTHERN to me! (Your blog entry could have been right out of Southern Living.)I come back to see if I had offended you, and was so afraid you'd see me as a "dumbass"...Thank GOD you had northern sympathies in your parents, it's all I gotta say!

I do love the south, and am beginning to understand parts of it.

That's cuz I got here when I was 2! My brothers were actually born here, but they're still weird hybrids. One brother is all into cornbread stuffing and we still look at him like he's wrong. :-)

Okay...I jus' got one more brilliant insight. How the hell do you have the patience to take these photos? They are a bit remniscent of Andrea's Buzzing About, the queen of insect photos in my eyes.

I usually keep my camera with me outdoors; that way I can snap photos whenever I notice something I want to capture. :-)
