Our friend's mountain house.
Oops, no--got the wrong house. THIS is the right one, on top of the mountain.
Looking out the front door at the garden.
Supper on the deck with breezes blowing, and a gorgeous view of range after range of mountains.
My main men in North Carolina: Cody and Aussie.
Cody was inherited, and not a grateful ward, scouting the mountains on his own for the first few weeks. Aussie got a last-minute stay of execution at the local animal shelter. Together they form the citizen's watch for the neighborhood. there was a huge rattler (I think it was, spotted nearby recently.)
Looking out from the back porch.
Hummingbirds come frequently to sip at the glass, as well as other lovely species of feathered visitors.
