it's not you, it's me.
Ironically, I have much blogging material to work with at the moment, including one more Colorado post from this summer, and I just got back from a photo-rich trip to south Florida. However, before I get to any of these posts, I did not want 500 to pass by unnoticed, even though that number is only significant because we make it so. I guess if our species had a different number of fingers on each hand, different anniversaries would be celebrated. And speaking of celebrating, just how does one mark 500 posts? How about with something completely random? We drove home from Florida yesterday, and as in any long road trip, random things are seen, random stops are made. In Lumberton, North Carolina we stopped to fill up our tank with the gasoline that would get us home. Someone at the station had been quite creative with the landscaping, especially with containers. Since sharing is the very essence of blogging, let me do so.
The southern magnolia planters were the most interesting. The trees are actually planted in the ground, but the trunks are wrapped in black drainage pipe. There were a matching pair flanking the entrance to the service station.
Whether this is your first visit, your 500th, or more plausibly, something in between, I thank you for stopping by.
