Welcome to my world along the Georgia coast where I am surrounded by salt water creeks and rivers, salt marsh and a beach on the Atlantic Ocean is only a five minute drive away. Please join me for a glimpse of some of the natural beauty that is in my world.

I’m not a birder and don’t have a life list but I love all birds and I love to watch them doing what birds do. It’s always interesting to see a bird or a pair of birds on their nest or building their nest. It’s even more fun if there are chicks!
I planted two new new camellias last weekend. Even though it’s been raining every day since then I have managed to go check them out every day between showers. I’m hoping there will continue to be new blooms in the garden for awhile.
The following two images and the image above are from my garden last year and this year.
My interest in camellias began when I went for a tour of the camellias in Bonaventure Cemetery with a group of ladies in my local garden club two years ago. This plant covered with rosy red camellias was one of my favorites from that day.
As you walk along some of the beaches on Georgia’s barrier islands you may come across driftwood from dead trees. Sometimes you may even find an entire tree that has fallen.
In October 2016, Category 2 Hurricane Matthew was offshore in the Atlantic Ocean when it passed by close to where we live in Coastal Georgia. When we returned home after evacuating I witnessed first hand just how powerful the storm was. Massive old oaks and pines had fallen all around our neighborhood, blocking roads and driveways. In some cases the tree just barely missed landing on a house.
