Great Dismal Swamp State Park


2294 U.S. 17 N . South Mills . NC

Last month I started to show you some pics from the Great Dismal Swamp on the Virginia side…the next day we went to the North Carolina side and visited the State Park…

Once we cross the bridge here we can head over to the visitors center or jump on a trail…we chose the trail…

Swamp in black and white…those dark things poking out of the water are cypress knees.
Look at the bark on that tree! It’s so shaggy!
Ferns!! Lots of ferns!!
Cute little turtle!

Grease Monkey


7865 Jordantown Road . Vinton

Recently Nick and I were out driving around and stopped at a little convenience store for some ice cream.  While we sat in the truck eating we were reading this sign which was in front of us…”if we can’t fix it, we’ll make your radio louder so you won’t hear it” haha we thought that was funny!

Earlier this week I went to work and when I showed up this little Weeping Willow tree was waiting for me! A customer had dropped it off for me…it is my favorite tree and I guess I had mentioned it to them! So thankful for kind and thoughtful people who make your day a little brighter!

Tuesday’s Treasures - Greyledge

1066 Greyledge Rd . Buchanan 

Greyledge was built in 1842…I had seen pictures of it and wanted to see it for myself…we put the address in our GPS and off we went!

When we first turned onto Greyledge Rd we noticed this:

An old rock wall that led the way…we kept following the road…
I remembered seeing the pond in a picture so I knew we were close…just a little further then…
There it was! At this point we tried to turn around but the driveway circled up to the front of the house (first picture) where I took a quick pic and we drove off…it didn’t appear like anyone was home…that would have been embarrassing!

Greyledge doesn’t really have a happy history…you can read all about it HERE

Monday Murals - Unknown in Roanoke


202 Williamson Rd SE . Roanoke

This is right by the Firestone building and I cannot find one single thing about this mural…ugh!!! You know how much that drives me crazy…how can this great mural go basically unnoticed on the internet??!!  To me it looks like a farmer standing in the rain…wonder what he’s thinking? “When will this rain end” or “Thank goodness we’re finally getting some rain”…haha this is why I need info on it! Anyways, I’m linking up with Monday Murals

Have a great day 🙂
