Mabry Mill (milemarker 176) is reported to be the most iconic — and photographed — structure on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s easy to see why it is so popular with tourists and photographers. Betsy and I stopped there on our way home from the Peaks of Otter in September, which is when I captured this photo.

Earlier this month Betsy and I took a couple of days off to drive up into Virginia in search of some cooler temperatures and some relaxation. We got onto the Blue Ridge Parkway as soon as possible and enjoyed this view from the Cahas Mountain Overlook in Virginia.

Walking the golf course not only gives us good exercise, but it also gives us the opportunity to capture some gorgeous skies. I got this picture last August (2015) when we took an evening walk. This was taken on the fairway behind our house.

Although Betsy and I always hate losing a rose from our garden, replacing a rose gives us the opportunity to enjoy new ones. A new rose for us this year is Beautiful Dreamer. I tried to give it a ‘dreamy’ look in this photo, but I definitely do think it is beautiful.

I have quite a bit of Irish in my background, so I just had to have this rose — Saint Patrick — in our yard. It’s a little hard to tell in this picture, but when the blossom first opens the outer petals have a touch of green to them. I guess that explains how it got its name.

We may not make it to California to see the beauty of that state in person, but at least we can enjoy this gorgeous Malibu rose right in our own yard.

Betsy and I are fortunate to have flowers blooming almost continuously from Spring through Autumn. While roses are our very favorites, we also enjoy some beautiful lilies this time of the year. This beauty is called Freedom's Glow. I love the color.
