When I turned 16, my mother told me I could invite a few friends out to dinner to celebrate. I told everyone to meet at Peking Buffet later that night. We laughed and talked at one of the long tables in the back, and right before the cake, a young girl (probably close to my age) and her father appeared at the table. He said that his daughter had learned it was my birthday and wanted to give me a gift as I sign of appreciation for choosing their restaurant for my celebration. I was dumbfounded with gratitude when I opened the small box and found a jade pendant. A jumping rabbit had been carefully carved into it. It was smooth and shiny, and I loved it immediately. I’m certain I cried. It’s been years since I’ve seen her, but I still think about her kindness when I visit. And I wear her pendant every day. 💚 . . . #listenhard #amwriting #spilledthoughts #reality #writers #life #wordart #poet #literature #learner #language #human #thoughts #words #writing #creativewriting #poetryisnotdead #poetry #confessional #imagist #modernpoetry #appalachia #appalachianpoetry #appalachianpoet #wvpoet #wv

This old corn crib is across from the little neighborhood I live in on a dead end road in the country by the river. There's also two large barns and a few other small, decrepit buildings. I've been using the walls of a couple of these structures to hang and photograph my wreaths over the last couple of months. I drove a few nails in the weather worn boards and have been stopping by every few days with a fresh batch of wreaths. I love the rusty tin roof and the bittersweet vines climbing the trees. . . . #farm #rural #countrylife #landscape #corncrib #rustytinroof #farmerflorist #mountainmomma #mountainstate #sunday #abandoned #structure #barn #weatherworn #fields #home #appalachia #myneighborhood #explore #adventure #safari #nature #amateurphotography #AlmostHeaven #getoutside #appalachian_explorers

Jesus's Journal entry 5: There's no sleep for the wicked. That means I have to step up to always have the upper hand. I went to join the Fire Breathers👨‍🚒. I passed basic training with ease but that will pale in comparison to the final Initation mission. I have to pass in order to become a full fledged Fire Breather. I was instructed to head for Belching Betty mine where I would recieve further instructions. This mine has a funny name but Betty might be belching fire🔥 😅 On arrival I met Bernie who gave me the neccessary gear for this mission. 🙂 I had to commemorate this moment before heading inside so I took a selfie with Bernie. 📸 . . #Fallout76 #Roleplay #Fallout #Fallout4 #FalloutNewVegas #WestVirginia #Fallout3 #Appalachia #VaultDweller #FireBreather #Mixer #XboxOne #playstation #VirtualPhotographer #VirtualSelfie #Bernie #Gamer #mixerstreamer #Fallout76JesusJournal5

Who doesn’t like a nice shovel-nosed salamander (D. marmoratus) to end the semester? I’ve always been a big fan of these salamanders, but I don’t often find myself in streams these days. I found this fella while helping out with some stream surveys over the weekend. I got some okay pictures on my phone, but I’m sure @herpetology.zv has much better ones. #desmognathus #marmoratus #shovel #amphibian #salamander #appalachia #fieldherping #herpetology #streams #nature #nc

One of the great things about fishing around Greenville is the variety of water nearby. Located near the border with NC, there is quick access to streams and rivers on both sides of the border. This fish was caught on a nearby delayed harvest stream, the Green River just over the border in Saluda, NC. However, we have had great fishing on the Eastatoee, South and Middle Saluda in SC, other delayed harvest and stocked waters in SC and NC as well as wild streams that we won’t name 😉. And all of this is a short drive from Downtown Greenville!

I will never tire of watching sunsets. There’s no better way to end the day than watching a sunset. I am always in complete awe of them. So beautiful regardless of how dramatic the colors might be. It stops me in my tracks and I can’t look away. It just makes me feel so blessed to be able to witness something so beautiful. Tonight’s sunset was no exception. It was freezing cold, but I couldn’t leave until the last light had faded. So mesmerizing. . . . . . . . . . . . #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen #sunset #mountains #appalachiantrail #blueridgemountains #appalachianmountains #appalachia #whiteblaze #mountainsunset #getoutside #getoutdoors #hiking #hikingadventures #hikersofinstagram #girlswhohike #hike #goexplore #adventure #hikingmakesmehappy

Since we moved to our farm in Reedsville, West Virginia, in Spring 2019, we have been exploring heirloom seed varieties of this state and the rest of the Appalachian region. We found out about Cindy's West Virginia when we were making a list of the tomatoes that originated here. Seeds for this variety were sent to TomatoFest's Gary Ibsen by Dean Rhine from Fish and Game Department of WV at the time. Rhine received the seeds from his colleague, Cindy, who originally got the seeds from her father, Charlie (Wirt County, WV). Charlie grew the seeds for many years and got the seeds from his neighbor who also grew this tomato joyfully in their garden for many years. We feel very fortunate to have met Cindy's West Virginia as this is absolutely one of the best flavored tomatoes we have ever grown. Sorry, folks! Flavor was so complex that we sacrificed many fruits for fresh eating rather than keeping them for seeding for our catalog. Meaty fruits are pink and have very uniform beefsteak shape with very few seeds. Large plants have potato leaves and keep producing loads of fruits until frost. We have a feeling that Cindy's West Virginia will be a staple tomato in our catalog, this point forward! #heirloomseeds #heirloomtomatoes #tomatoseeds #tomatoesofappalachia #tomatoesofwestvirginia #seedsofwestvirginia #smallfarmers #seedsavers #seedgrowers #seedstewards #farminginwestvirginia #appalachia #westvirginia #appalachianseedcompany #farminginappalachia #seedstories #homegardeners #backyardgardening #squarefootgardening #raisedbedgardening #seedcompany #heirloomseedcompany #twoseedsinapod

➖➖➖➖➖➖ 👈👈 #swipeleft Second photo is by one of East Tennessee's first exploring photographing Pioneers Mr. Albert "Dutch" Roth back in February 23rd, 1935. Albert "Dutch" Roth, 1890 - 1974 born September 20, 1890 in Knoxville, Tenn., is recognized as one of the most prolific early photographers of the Great Smoky Mountains' Greenbrier and Mount Le Conte sections. What began in 1913 as a diversion soon developed into a serious avocation as Roth perfected his penchant for photography while avidly hiking the unexplored regions near his home. He worked exclusively with a Kodak 122 camera, and, often carrying a heavy tripod, would climb twenty to thirty feet up a tree or venture hundreds of yards off the trail to capture the landscape images for which he would later be noted. Roth remained an amateur photographer, and, consequently, his photographs were never highly distributed. Because of his frequent travels in the mountains and early association with a local hiking club, he left a valuable collection of images that illustrate the pioneer way of life before the advent of the national park. . . He is the main reason I started off trailing to find these waterfalls that didn't have coordinates to go with the photos. The featured photos are Thornburg Ridge Falls with the natural 23 x 6 rock bridge at the top. I took my friend @jmcartisticphotography here on Tuesday to show him some of the beauty that lays over that Georgia state line. . .
