Traveling Fools

December 4th, 2012

Mr Chiots and I are travelers, we’ve spent many hours driving across the country and have visited many states. Driving is our preferred method of travel because there are so many interesting things to see. There are so many interesting things to see while you’re on the road, gardens, houses, businesses, cars and people.

Yesterday, we traveled in a big truck and got to see a whole different view. The world looks completely different when you’re up that high. I saw things on our trip to Maine that I’ve never seen before because they’re behind embankments and trees.

Of particular interest to me while traveling, is the beauty of the natural landscape. Nature really does do it best, it’s amazing that we spend hours planning, planting and tending our gardens and they pale in comparison to the beauty of a wild garden. We can learn a lot about gardening by taking note of wild areas.

What do you notice most while traveling?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
