More Sights on Trip to Spring
(see previous posts)When we hike up to the spring, we are always relieved to see that the reservoir is full, despite us being in a drought and about 4 inches below normal on our yearly precipitation! We are also relieved when we finally get down to our lane and head to the house. Going up there is a tiring activity, especially for us old folks!
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
