    A lot of pictures from the mountains. 56K suicide.

    I have a LOT of pictures from the mountains. First part is our property and where the lake drains, second is a hike on a neighbors property.

    Woah. Awesome. I would love to live there. It's so green! You know what the pink/white flowers and the orange flowers are? Thanks for sharing those. I really enjoyed them all.

    Sure. The pink flowers are Kalmia latifolia, the white ones are Robinia pseudoacacia, and the orange ones are Rhododendron calendulaceum (I think) and I must say that this Azalea is my favorite native bush/tree. As you can see it's very large and nothing like the Azaela you see in people's gardens. I've actually never seen this plant outside high elevations, but they are pretty common once you go into the mountains. I'm glad we have some in our yard. The flowerless (for now) Rhododenron I showed above are my second favorite native bush/tree, but their white flower's can't compete.


    Why are they called the "Blue Ridge" mountains? That mountain looks pretty green to me. What you can't see in the picture is the other side of the lake, which has like.. six of them. I'll have to pay attention and see if they're blue next time. I guess I've never really looked.

    Edit: Humph. I guess they really are blue. I thought all mountains looked like that from a distance. We have since cut down that little dogwood. Sad, I know, but the view is nicer. They wouldn't cut down the two hickory trees beside it, unfortunately.
