NEW SIGHTS

Well now. Here is something completely unexpected.

NEW SIGHTS  Well now. Here is something completely unexpected. In our absence (and how long has it been since we wandered this way?) a nice hillock of Oconee Bells has appeared, right beside a spur trail leading to the Foothills Trail. Not so long ago these bright green plants grew higher up the mountainside, but a large chunk of earth let go and slid, neatly landing a large patch of Jocassee’s most renowned wildflower most intimately next to the trail. It appears that no Bells were harmed in the relocation; they are quite intact, complete with a couple of fresh and perfect Christmas ferns. What a treat to have these beautiful plants so close, and elevated by this chunk of mountain earth to afford a close-up viewing. That isn’t the only change on this walk. A new stream has cut a channel through the middle of the trail. The large sign marking the trailhead has fallen. Otherwise, all is as we last saw it, only a season advanced. It’s a beautiful walk on this clear, cool spring day, and we rejoice to be out enjoying it. ~K
