From City to Coast

Not quite spring snow in Charlotte

Not quite spring snow in Charlotte

We woke up to another unexpected round of snow flurries in Charlotte on Saturday, while members of my family sipped their coffee overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway near Wilmington, NC. My cousin Nancy kindly shared the view from our favorite retreat in the photo below – the waterway especially calm without the buzz of summer boat traffic.

With just over a month until the annual North Carolina Azalea Festival, my mom reported a few bright buds emerging on azalea bushes around the property. When thousands gather to celebrate the Southern blooms at Airlie Gardens several miles away, azaleas will surround our old family home in the colors of springtime.
