  4. Weeds Rule on Flickr.

    Weeds are plants in the wrong place in the right place they’re pretty. Here at Robinwood Lake weeds rule. The lazy hazy days of Summer are upon us and I love it. :-))

  7. Exotic Mimosa Tree on Flickr.

    Having been introduced from Asia in the mid-1700s, the Mimosa tree also called silk tree (Albizia julibrissin), is beautiful and exotic. It has now made itself at home throughout North Carolina and the entire southeast and like all invasive non native trees it’s thriving at the expense of native trees. They are so dramatic and beautiful like this specimen at Robinwood Lake that it’s hard not to love them. ^_^

  8. Summer Evening on Flickr.

    Summer evening at Robinwood Lake, Gastonia NC. It’s hot and humid with occasional short lived showers. Thunder rumbles in the distance but it’s calm without wind so it’s perfect.

  9. Blue Flower on Flickr.

    A blue flower is a central symbol of inspiration. It stands for desire, love, and the metaphysical striving for the infinite and unreachable. It symbolizes hope and the beauty of things. ^_^

    I love my Magnolia tree I took this shot in evening light after a shower.
