It’s late June and the thick beds of tall flowers blooming along I-85 jump up and hold my caffeinated attention as North Carolina says, “Welcome back.”

What a treat – show times listed here.
We are on our way to Atlanta for a long weekend with family for the husband’s birthday. We’ll take about a week to return to DC via Athens (GA), Chattanooga (TN), Knoxville (TN), Asheville (SC) and Richmond (VA).
Posts here will be sporadic but you can follow @TheSoilToil on twitter, Facebook and tumblr.
Do you have any favorite garden spots to share along our route?
