Quilt With Us

DH and I returned home late yesterday afternoon from our visit to North Carolina and Virginia. The weather was beautiful, warm and sunny  (except for one day and I was in a meeting so didn't care). My only complaint, other than the briefness of our visit, was the trees. I experienced this several years ago when I flew to Boston, rented a car and drove to Saratoga Springs, NY--frustration with trees. Driving along, we knew that on either side of the road were important sites and beautiful things but couldn't see anything but the trees on both sides of the road. Argh! We couldn't even see the gas station signs.

Okay I got my little rant out of the way now. Otherwise, it was beautiful.

PQ, I think you're right. I love looking out and seeing the mountains and the sky. And the occasional tree.

The trees are for sound blocking of the highway noise. They were also planted to keep the dust down. We had a very dirty car going back to Mo from Ga. It does get old to have the light  shine between the trees. Hard to sew with, but so is the bright sun.

We use to take 95 to FL. but experienced the same thing going through the Carolinas. We take 81down through the Blue Ridge Mt. Our trees are at peak right now. Gorgeous colors.

Barbara - you're just used to Wyoming where trees don't have a chance against the wind!  ;)    

From windy western Nebraska...where we like the wide open spaces as well.
