I guess I could have shown some moonlight photos so that my title COULD have been "Moonlight and Roses". Instead, my post today could be titled "Waterfalls and Roses". The song ("Moonlight and Roses") was the theme of my Senior Prom.. Remember that song???? Many of you may be WAY too young for that one!!!! ha
Anyhow, today I will share with you photos of four more of our beautiful roses. AND--I'll show you some waterfall pictures also. Hope you enjoy all of them. The one above is named WILDFIRE---and it's a brilliant orangy-red-yellow color.. George took MANY pictures just to try to get the color perfect on the photo. Wish you could see this beauty in person.
LOVE AND PEACE
ELIZABETH TAYLOR; (Great name for this one, don't you think?)
Remember on Mother's Day when George and I were coming home from our beach trip??? We drove from Cherokee, NC over the mountain to Gatlinburg, TN on Highway 441. WELL---you may also remember that there had been lots and lots of rain that weekend... SO--what do George and Betsy see when there's alot of rain?????? WATERFALLS!!!!!!
That particular day, going over the mountain, we saw 22 different waterfalls or cascades. You've never seen two people so excited!!!! ha.... Above and below are FOUR of the 22. We have no idea what the names are ---so right now, you can just enjoy them as Smokies Waterfalls.
Aren't these 'wet-weather' waterfalls in the Smokies just gorgeous?????? We really did see 22 different ones that day (May 10--Mother's Day) ---but not all of them are as pretty as these. It was one of the BEST Mother's Days I have ever had, as you can imagine!
Hope you are having a glorious weekend... Remember to smile when you pass someone on the street or in church. Your smile may just make THEIR day!
