We went on a small hunt yesterday to find cows in Stephens County. I know this should be an easy task and it is. I know where "my" cows hang out. We just wanted to find some new ones that I had not photographed before and we accomplished that goal! Anne asked a farmer, who [...]
I once had a friend who loves Mimosa trees. She would tell me how she thought they equaled to pure summer moments. I remember these trees best from going to Florida with my family. It just seems like it belongs to that state's landscape. But now I see them everywhere in northeast Georgia. This particular [...]
I'm still photographing flowers at Currahee Gardens and think these are beautiful. I wish I could remember the names! I believe this is a type of Queen Anne's Lace (wild carrot) is called Dara.

Notice the shoreline in this photo; Lake Hartwell is struggling to get past the major decline from an almost year-long drought. All the rocks behind Pat are usually underwater but you [...]
