#WW Blog Break Photo-Op, Part 2

Last week, I shared a panoramic view of the Shenandoah Valley. Next stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway I snapped these pictures.

I call this fried chicken and apple pie. lol This is a replica of small farming community on the Blue Ridge Parkway in northern Virginia.
I loved the old chairs on the porch with the wild flowers and broken wooden barrel near the corner edge!
Headed back to the car, I noticed this butterfly garden and it wowed me!

Thanks for visiting. I invite you to have fun with a few of my favorite #WW shutterbugs link ups!

Have a fototastic day!

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    Incredibly beautiful photos. There are so many photographic opportunities along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Minion graphic is hysterical. Our mom is always cutting off body parts or putting her thumb over the lens. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
