There are always lots of wildflowers growing in the mountains, though by the time we went, many of them were past their blooming season. I did get a few pictures of some on that eventful drive to Roan Mountain, as well as some other pictures I took around our vacation house. Here are a few pictures of flowers and more and the obligatory picture of Sweet Pea ;-)
Daisies are EVERYWHERE in the mountains of NC, but I did think this one was particularly pretty.
No idea what this is, but I thought they were pretty.
This little guy isn't floating in midair, but his web didn't show up in the picture at all. He turned out to look iridescent from the flash of my camera, but I don't feel like that shows up too well here.
Some kind of toadstool. In person, it almost looked like a stump of wood.
Laura appears to be ready for football season... TOUCHDOWN!! (It's hard to have a picture taken with her these days -- she just wants to keep moving, haha!)
