Memorial Day Weekend

What a wonderful weekend I've had! Sweetie and I packed up our camping gear and headed for the Great Smoky Mountains. We stayed at Cosby Campground -- and I can't say enough how soul refreshing the woods are. I napped under a canopy of green leaves and blue sky and every time I opened my eyes I felt I was in heaven.
Here a little picture show to get a glimpse of how beautiful it was:

Now here are some things that my artistic eye found stunning. I like taking pictures of patterns and forms. I can't get enough of nature, once I'm out in it.

A diseased leaf, moss on a rock and a very gnarled tree.

And to close, here is a true mountain Man:
Mr. Curtis, who sold me a fabulous walking stick made out of juniper. (He is holding it in this picture.)
I feel very very happy.
