  3. Morning Cindy.
    Oh my goodness..........this brings back such great memories and makes me just want to pack up and go to the mountains.........lol Love it up there!
    Love all the fun sights you have had too, being in nature is just the best vacation ever as far as we are concerned, nothing can compare with God's handiwork, that is for sure!

  4. Beautiful photos Cindy! It's funny how much the NC mountains remind me of my neck of the woods in Oregon. So lush! :-)

  5. Hi Cindy,

    What refreshingly vibrant scenes of green and gorgeous mountain homes! Because of the rain, the area is blessed with those tall, healthy trees that provide pretty views from equally beautiful homes nearby. Enchanting, wish I could visit to walk in all the splendour.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. The homes in the mountains are so beautiful. Would love to live in any area with so many Christmas tree farms and streams running nearby.

  8. Hi Cindy,

    It looks like you're having a wonderful time in our beautiful N.C. mountains. :) I love your photos, and you got some great closeups!! We almost ran over a groundhog in our neighborhood today -- YIKES. He was right in the middle of the road, and my husband had to hit the brakes and swerve around him. They are so cute. If everything works out, we'll be going to the mountains in July -- I'm looking forward to it.

    Thanks for sharing (I love your camper, BTW). Have a great weekend!

    Hugs,

    Denise

  9. The squirrel is so cute. Our French squirrels look exactly like that: red and fluffy ears, but if I can sometimes hear them, I very rarely seem them as they are really shy.

  15. Cindy,

    What beautiful photos! I am partial to the mountains, myself, whether they are in NC or at our little cabin in Fancy Gap, VA. There is nothing to compare to mountain splendor. And the tulip tree...I have lived in NC for over 20 years in the same house and this was the first year our tulip poplars bloomed! I didn't know what those things were, high up in those trees... until I googled the description and there was my answer! Their blooms are absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this lovely post!

  17. The mountain homes are lovely all nestled in with beautiful surroundings. The red one really stands out, but I guess that's what was intended.

  22. Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures! Somewhere around the same time, I went ecstatic at the sight of 100+ yrs old tulip trees (some 4-5 of them) in blossom at the Lund Botanical Gardens. The lady who almost dragged me over to share her enthusiasm (noticing mine) told me there is one across from our place (in Sweden) too.
    I had to go and check it out, after all they are a strong connection from back home (NC)!
