This one is for you Donna N. Cry Baby Bridge--south of Anderson
Here is a bit of the legend as taken from Wikipedia: "There is a "Crybaby Bridge" on High Shoals Rd, just south of Anderson, SC. High Shoals Road crosses the Rocky River at the high shoals point. The bridge which crosses the river is known by locals as Cry Baby Bridge. The local legend (which is repeated in nearly every county in South Carolina) tells of a woman and her infant who died in a car crash off the bridge. By crossing the bridge halfway and repeating a chant, one can hear a baby cry, or a woman scream, or see a ghostly car pass. The story of Cry Baby Bridge has certainly reached urban legend status."
I love looking back through my files to find image in my archives. I always find a jewel that I didn't really see before. This is a beautiful farm in the Pennsylvania Amish country. Taken on our trip home after dropping Meredith off in New York--January 2007.
I love the red bud tree in my yard. Each year I watch in anticipation for the blooms. This red bud is at the Clemson Botanical Garden. I have never seen a tree bloom this way. I am not sure if it was pruned purposely to cause the blooms to be so close to the limb. No matter, it was very unusual and very lovely.
Yesterday Jennifer, my middle daughter, treated me to a pedicure and a massage. It was a lovely day. Today, Meredith, my baby girl, accompanied me to a photo shoot at the Clemson Botanical Gardens. Another lovely day! I am truly blessed.
