Coastal Views

I spent a long weekend at the North Carolina coast for a reunion with some special college friends. We had a happy time catching up with each other. From our beautiful sound-side location, the views from every direction were scenic and peaceful.

While I was away there was quite a lot of rain in Chapel Hill. I took a quick walk throughout my garden upon my return home, but mosquitoes quickly drove me back inside this afternoon. Zinnias, cleome, lantana and a few echinacea continue to provide summer color.

      A special request for cleome? Thanks. I love it too–such a complex plant. I’ll post some if I can find some that haven’t been damaged by the rains.

    We’ve been getting lots or rain the last two days and it looks like we may get some more. That area along the coast looks beautiful, I had somehow gotten the impression that the NC coast had been overdeveloped.
