glory and gratitude

Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts: and no one to thank.
--Christina G. Rossetti (1830-1894) English poet

I'm not sure what this plant is, but you'll see it all over the balds in the Roan Highlands right now. I was thankful to find it there -- it's bright color foreshadowing the mountains being covered in bluets, rhododendron and azalea.


  1. Looks like blueberry bushes in the winter.

  2. I miss going to TN/NC to see the mountains. Thanks for posting them here. Always Great Shots!
