Road Home

I have written about my road home before.......I love my drive to and from work. It is a winding country road, up and down hills and just a few miles before my work place, you realize that you are on a plateau on one of the foothills of the Appalachians . The view is breathtaking.

As I drove home today, I noticed how green and leafy the trees had become. In many places, they form a canopy over the road, a cool verdant roof of lacy leaves. Along the roadside there are black eye Susans blooming, and it seems miles of Queen Anne's Lace. There is a section that appears to be frontage of an old home place, and it is covered by orange day lilies. And of course, there are places where you can smell the wild honeysuckle and see massive blooms of the wild magnolia trees. These are just the wild and untamed areas.

There are modest homes scattered in settlements along the road, and many appear to be in competition for the prettiest flowers. It seemed each house had some sort of beautiful flower/gardens in full bloom today. Roses, were abundant, and also purple petunias.
The sky was a clear bright blue, the ozone has finally cleared, and thought it was ninety degrees,a cool breeze was blowing.

This road home, never ceases to amaze me with it beauty in every season. It is such a great transition to and from work. I am a lucky woman.
