I really don't want to be one of those obnoxious people who likes to "rub it in" but... damn if we didn't have a nice weekend here! Harley and I set out on the Glides about 9:30 Saturday morning with the temps at a cool 51 degrees, but we were warmed up to 81 by 2:00! And it's only February!
Small old cemeteries are a very common site when your riding throughout the county roads of the south. They're usually close to little country churches, dappled with a handful of tombstones, most of which are leaning and tilting, and so old and faded, it's hard to see the writing on them. While taking a short break near one of these spiritual pieces of real estate, I noticed this beautiful Camellia in full bloom.
I just love how the red color pops out against the backdrop of brownish green as the landscape tries to rejuvenate itself towards Spring. Color like this is what catches the eye while your cruising by at 70. I'm sure Mr. and Mrs. Tidwell are enjoying they're crimson camellias as they rest peacefully and I hope they didn't mind my sharing them with you.
I know we've been having two weeks of great temperatures here, but the cold is not gone for good. We are in for more winter weather ahead, but as long as Mother Nature dangles these beautiful Spring like days in front of me... I plan to take full advantage of them! Besides... my ol' girl likes to sunbathe!
Hope you all have a great week! Ride on!
