Plants at the B. Estate









 Huge Japanese Maple trunks
 F.L. Olmstead was here
 Mature Maples
 and wisteria…not so mature when George was around!

Sky and statuary swept clean from recent cloudburst, while Leisa and I had picnicked at the pond.

Dioramas

False, boxed-in natural environments… Reminds me of the work of Patti Oleon--some of her beautiful small oils are inspired by dioramas in natural history museums.

Canoeing on the Broad River

A late fall trip, meandering slowly down the Broad. When we finally reached the Camp Sand Pit bridge, I was pretty chilled.



Plants off the Parkway

I love this meadow near Black Balsam, off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Just getting around to posting some photos now--I must have been there in October or November? Days and months bleed together.

Atalaya Castle, Huntington Beach, South Carolina















Built in the 1930's, Atalaya Castle is an odd but beautiful place...
