More pretties...

 Rhododendrons overlooking the terraced beds where we just planted vegetables...beside Lake Tomahawk.  If you look closely you'll see the lone yacht being maneuvered about on the water by remote control.

 An interesting chocolate and creamy iris color...almost done blooming for this year.

 Miss bumble bee was doing her job!

From up high, do you look up or down?

Not having to rough it, we climbed a paved path curving up to the top...

It was a clear day with great vistas available

Still out of breath and glad to go slow to the top.

 Dr. Mitchell's tomb is right below the deck.

Great photo dioramas tell which peaks are which from the observation deck.  See other posts of mine about Mount Mitchell, (look at list of topics in right column.)

I'm not quite as adventuresome as these guys...but the theme's the same.  Come over to see what other's have contributed to Sepia Saturday.

Abundance of roses

 Entering the Lake Tomahawk area, you pass a sweet rose bush.

 And these beauties are along the walk leading to my apartment.

More flowers anyone?  Sure, she said...manana! (I don't know how to get the ~ above the n)

Vegetable garden at the lake

 I helped Master Gardener David Bush plant some seeds of various vegetables in the raised bed at the Lakeview Center for Active Aging. 

 I started at one end, and he started at the other.

 Then he pointed out the volunteer pitcher plant (right in the middle front of this picture.)  It's a pitcher picture.

 And now, 8 days later, just look what's up already!

A clay basket

For a small supper, perhaps for rolls, or fruits, or?

Kalancho flowers

These flowers on a succulent indoor plant start to lose little dead pieces and so I cut them all off the plant and made an arrangement.  I really am rooting them, because this plant is so easy to grow.  And the mother plant was getting a bit unwieldy.
