Trillium & Dogwoods






Not sure about you ... but I don't always get the time to stop and enjoy the blooms. While visiting Cades Cove and The Great Smoky Mtns in Tennessee ..we got the chance to enjoy the trillium and dogwood blooms. I found a really cool website about "Ten Things to Know about Trilliums", which I thought was so super cool info., that I didn't know, I love learning, go check it out just for fun, did you know all that info.? 39 native trilliums in the US? Wonder about what is around in Canada or other countries? really??! Now I wanna find them all, who is with me? I have never seen any kind but the white ones, what about you? I got start a check list of every one I need to find. Usually I see trillium off on the sides of the road in Virginia ... but there is never a spot to see them close up ... not safe to stop that sort of thing ... so enjoyed seeing these though. You enjoy!! Have a super great day!! & THANK YOU for stopping by. Hope you are well. Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

I LOVE dogwood blossoms...and I so love trillium. I honestly don't remember ever seeing the white, always see the deep red. But I think surely I have seen white...and in looking up something, I did come across the fact that there are a lot of varieties. I want to check out the facts page you gave, but haven't done it yet....

We have white and red trilliums here for a few weeks in the spring, generally in shady spots. Dogwood is very rare here, though I can think of one that's planted in a zen garden at one of our museums.

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

Cove Point Lighthouse
I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :
