June is a beautiful month around my house. Plants have been growing long enough to be luxurious. Blossoms are out all over. The cone flowers and gay feathers are in full bloom, and the gladiolas are starting. Cannas are starting to be bright as well. Here is my homage to my blooms.
My nephew said it all when he was quoted for a newspaper article. He said “It is our temple!” Our church builds beautiful temples to worship God in, and to do ordinances that link families together eternally. They are very sacred, and are only open to the public before they are dedicated. This is the […]
I love old homes. I like to look at the architecture of the place. If it is an old farmhouse, I wonder what life was like on that farm many years ago. We all have homes that bring back memories for us, like our grandparent’s homes. My grandparents lived in homes built in the 60’s, […]
On old NC 49, just southwest of Asheboro, there is a barbecue restaurant. It is called Silo’s. I wonder if they named it after this picturesque farm located right behind it. Asheboro is located in the Uwharrie Mountains, a small, eroded, ancient chain. Our home is located in the hills you can see in the […]
Asheboro is like the proverbial city on a hill. It sits on a ridge, and within a few blocks of each other creeks begin, which later flow into the Yadkin River, or on the other side, the Cape Fear River. This is a small quick painting of Cedar Fork Creek, on the west side of […]
Small, rural towns are some of my favorite places. They all have their own character. They have neat churches, and old houses. If they are the county seat, they usually have a great courthouse. I am always a little sad when I go to a town where the old courthouse has been torn down, and […]
It is fun to live in an area where horses are common. Horsey was my daughter’s first animal word. She said it when we went for walks past the pastures. Today I painted a line of horses, eating their breakfast.
I live in a very beautiful place. My Grandma once described Indiana as “a painting everywhere you look.” I live in North Carolina, but I think the sentiment fits even better here. I have a little walk I like to take around my community. I walk down the hill, past an old farmhouse, and turn […]
I am so lucky! I have lived in so many beautiful places! I live near a small town in Central North Carolina. When I head in to town I have a choice, the state highway, or a country road. I love the country road because there are so many beautiful scenes. North Carolina has some […]
Temples are sacred places. We consider them to be the House of the Lord. Out of reverence for Deity, we make our temples as beautiful as we can. The grounds around the temple are also kept beautifully gardened. This is the Raleigh Temple, the closest temple to where I live. It was a beautiful cloudy […]
