FLOWER POWER

  Or is it the power of change.

The loons are almost gone, but the rhododendrons are exploding along the shoreline. Nature always provides an agent of change at end of each season, at the beginning of the next, to assuage the sorrow of seasons passing. When fall color fades, the loons arrive. When the loons depart, the rhodos bloom. And when the rhodos tire, the waterfalls and wild rivers of Jocassee become oh so inviting to swim in. What a place this is to live, by this grand inland sea, surrounded by the base of the Blue Wall, in a part of the natural world where the only constant is change. What a place. 

 

 

 

 

 

SWIMMER’S REPORT. The water temperature hit 70 degrees this week, an amazing gain over just a few days, and 70 degrees is the trigger. 80 degree sunny days, 70 degree water. The plunge is inevitable. ~B

 

BLOOM REPORT. The Gorges rhododendron is bright white to pink, mountain laurel is beginning to open, maple-leaf viburnums and alternate-leaf dogwoods are in full bloom, and fragrant clusters of black locust flowers are hanging over the lake. And oh, so much more Look closely. The longer you look, the more you see!
