It's August and for most people that means vacation, staycation or as they say in the UK, summer hols.
Unfortunately, the Hunts aren't taking any big trips this year. The pocketbook is still recovering from our month-long adventure Down Under, but that's no hardship since every day seems like a vacation here in the mountains.
My mother and a Daytona friend are coming up from Florida this weekend for the first time since we moved to North Carolina. I'm anxious for them to see as many of my favorite local haunts as possible and I thought I'd invite the Dirt Diaries gang to tag along.
So, welcome to my world. Enjoy your stay.
I'll be back soon with postings on an exciting new rose, dahlias, fairy gardens, terrariums and much more.
In the meantime, be sure to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your mountain holiday more enjoyable.
Moonshine, shower caps and bear repellent are available at the front desk.
