I've been trying since last fall to find a day where we could take time off and do this trip, but as it turned out, it was quite lucky that the first day I could find was Herb's birthday. It was far more beautiful than it would have been last fall or winter!
Something (apple tree?) was in bloom.
Especially since, between the wildflower preserve and home, we found a country restaurant on that serves grass-fed meat for breakfast and lunch! Such treasures in the back lanes of Georgia, fittingly located on Hog Jowl Road!
