Sharon your description of your mountain makes me homesick. I do miss the mountains. I remember a path up the mountain just as you described. I also loved wild flowers. Don't remember the names of all of them but I loved to look and find them. Loved your article.

I sure hope you are staying in during all this up and down weather!! Hasn't it been crazy?
It's good to hear from you again, I've thought about you often.

I went back home to the mountains in June, and I almost stayed. There's something about them that calms me, soothes me. The roads have changed, houses have been built, but the mountains remain the same. The Mountain Laurel was in bloom, wild honeysuckle, too...it was so beautiful. I wanted to go back in the fall, but that wasn't to be. Maybe next fall.

Stay warm over there, it won't be long till spring!
We'll have to get together when we are sure we won't be caught in a 5 minute snowstorm, and thanks so much for writing.

So good to hear from you. I go back each June for our family reunion. The Mountain Laurel and honeysuckle are so beautiful. I miss the dog woods. What beautiful woods when they and the redbuds are in bloom. I keep remembering the evenings I spent on my mothers porch listening to the evening birds. I just found out a few months ago the name of them. They are the wood thrush. Look them up and listen to them. So beautiful. We would sit out until dark and then they were silent. They leave sometime in late june or early july. The mountains were almost silent after they leave. They stay at the top of the mountain and the most beautiful music from them. I just can't describe it. Wish I could. I see wood thrush here but I don't hear them sing in the late evening as I did in the mountains. The music is almost heartbreaking.

I would love to get together sometime this spring or summer. You stay warm also. I really do not like winter.

That's it, the wood thrush. I used to think when the lightening bugs came out they turned the bird music off!

Great memories.
Yes, we'll find a time and a place, just keep in touch!
