Along the foothills, in and around Chattanooga, there are fanciful streams and wonderful springtime green. Bushes and weeds are about as pretty as florist offerings, trails are tempting, even when you're not sure where they wind up.
On this one day, it was warm- need no 'sleeve', no food, nothing but good eyes and senses, really- and a fresh drink of water. I walked about kind of slow- casting my glances in all directions at once... awed by the difference from my own home and yard.
Dense forests cover the mountains, except where human desire and ability has cut a swath- "city" encroaches all around, so you hafta just 'go around the bend' some- so you cannot be distracted by it.
I went to a waterfall, walked on the damp trails and drank in the aroma of Tennessee. It was southern, it was fantastic, and I like it. So, I am hoping to go again one day.
Some of you write and tell me of a place where you visited, and it engaged ALL your senses! Thank you.

There are many such places I have visited and I need to think some before I write about the one I choose.

Welcome to A2k jackie and I love Tennessee too.

Welcome....
I wish to offer you a merry welcome. Your post or should I refer to it as an offering of delight from the soul where you share lingering memories of such a beautiful and serene moment with nature. I especially shed and share delight with the simplicity of a bush and weeds being beautiful.
With all of us it is different.... Though to many of us I have found that we share a compassion or a sort of gratitude with many things that some of us on the mere flipside take for granted at times. :wink:

Greetings MellowGemini

Girl or guy? Or do you prefer that privacy?

Teaching - and especially a teacher for the challenged student, is such an admirable calling. Thank you from the rest of us for your effort.

I am glad you like the beauty of growing things- whatever classification wherewith 'botany' saddled them.

Later, I would like to allow my emotions and expressions to flow on my trip to the desert. Now THAT, was and emotional experience indeed. But I did not see all of it as beautiful.

I hope to see more of you.

(Ps, question asked -gender- should be shared: I am female- not too young, not too old <grinning> I like to think I am a blonde bombshell, but that would be OTHERS opinion to form. Unmarried, love to write, read, and lay around munching potato or corn chips. Not much else to know.)
