My Favorite Place to Find Inspiration
"My gazebo is ringed round by towering oak and dogwood trees. North Carolina is known for its blooming rhododendrons and azaleas, which grow there, too, in colorful profusion. The play of sunshine on the light and dark greens and on the pink, white, and red blooms of the azaleas offers a palette so beautiful that I become grateful to the Creator for allowing me to live this luscious life. When I am away, I picture myself sitting in that gazebo with a tall glass of homemade lemonade. I am quiet and gratefully ready to go to work."
