Anyhow---seeing SO many wildflowers was also a highlight. George and I have traveled on Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway several times --during several seasons, but have never been there when so many wildflowers were blooming. Today, I'll share a few of the photos I took along the way. The photos don't really show the true beauty all around us those three days when we traveled on Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway (Sept. 26-28, 2013), but hopefully, you will still enjoy them.
I'm sorry that I don't know the names of wildflowers like some of you do. I do know that some of them are Goldenrod (saw more of that than anything) --and some are Queen Anne's Lace. And of course, we all know what Thistle looks like. But--you will have to give us the names of the others, if you know them... Just sit back and enjoy the beauty!!!!!
The photo above is a cute photo I took of George while he was getting some photos of the Goldenrod.... Be sure and click on the photos for enlargements.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the wildflowers today. September is a GREAT time to travel since there's not as much summer traffic --and it's not as hot. Our weather was fabulous the entire trip!
On another note, I keep trying to remember to remind you to take a few minutes and check out my sidebar. I love quotes --and change many of them each month... SO--each month, you are invited to check out all of my quotes on the sidebar! Some are ones I love so much --so I leave them up. But --there are others I change each month. Hope you enjoy them too! Maybe one of them will 'touch' you!!
