This week in Travels




Whew! I figured out my blogging problem and am back in business. Last week we made a quick trip to Tn. to see the Dogwood Trails. They boast 60 miles of dogwood trails in and around Knoxville. Absolutely breathtaking!!! Had a few problems in that we stayed too far away, and I got sick Thurs. when we planned to shop and I got almost no shopping done. Oh well, got a couple of things. Couldn't go to Clingman's Dome cause the road was closed--not sure for repairs or ice, but we did see ice on the roadside around there.




We spent 2 days driving just looking at the pretty flowers! Redbuds and dogwoods and many other flowers were in abundance. Thanks to Kathy Wheeler who called me and said 2 words: "They're OUT!!" My little bags were packed and jobs parcelled out so fast!!




Yeah, The Dad went along and drove a LOT (and was a bit grouchy). We found out a few places in the old home place that needed more dogwoods. Yesterday, he went and bought a pink one!! I was opting for lining the driveway with dogwoods and redbuds but at $22.90 for one, I guess that isn't an option right now. And would you believe, I got "dogwooded out" by the end of the trip. We didn't even go to the last 2 on the list!
Have the greatest day and God bless one and all who read this!!
