Georgia Girl With An English Heart

                                                 This is me in England!

Hello, my friends!  If you should meet me on top of Arabia Mountain one day, you know I will tell you of my love of the area!
This is exactly what I did today when Richard and I met a delightful couple there.  You know I had to tell them of the wildflowers, the birds, the butterflies and well...a great many things!  I also told them that I have my own blog...do you tell people that you have a blog?  I don't usually but this couple seemed very interested in the area, so you know I had to tell them about Richard's great photos! And what better way for them to know Arabia Mountain than to see what we have seen and shared with you all! 

From outcrop at Panola Mountain, that's Stone Mountain in the distance.


In the autumn, walking on the trail at the Rockdale River trail.


Arabia Mountain, early March from a few years ago. The red diamorpha  is amazing!

Last September, at the British Museum in London.
Richard is such a great photographer, he can make even ME look good! (I think he was telling me to get just a BIT more behind him! Ha ha!)
So, do you tell others that you have a blog?  How do people react when you tell them this?  Funny thing, I noticed that someone got to my blog today by typing in this:  "origin of nosey parker".
I promise you I am NOT the origin of that phrase!
Love to you all, see the heart that I made from pine cones for you?

    1. I am either in England or at one of the monadnocks here, hardly anywhere else!

  2. Loved this post. I don't usually tell people I have a blog. I don't usually see many people outside of family and friends, and I think they all know it. Some even read it. ;<)

    1. Thanks, Nan. Sometimes, I feel like a crazy woman up in the attic, typing, typing, typing! Still, I say what I want to say and there is a quiet satisfaction in that.
      I don't think one single person that I know reads my blog. Gee, you would think that someone would!
      (Only my English friends read my blog with any regularity...see why I have an English heart?)

  3. Thank you for the pine cones heart, Kay!
    It depends on who I am talking to whether I tell people about my blog or not. My family (and O.K.'s) of course know of it, they always read it and sometimes my Mum even comments. As for my Yorkshire family, I have mentioned my blog to them but they are not "big" internet/computer people and we rarely even exchange emails, it is mostly phone calls or text messages with them.
    My German friends here are simply not interested. Could be because my blog is in English :-) None of my friends in offline life blogs.

    1. It is as if we have secret blogs! I notice that Facebook and Instagram are very popular just now. Did you know that I have an Instagram account? I don't do much on there but I do like to look at quick photos of the things that interest me. Christopher set it up for me and I hope to see him this weekend, he has to take it from me and do the updates on it for me, I am hopeless at those kind of things!

  4. Love your pine cone heart, and your beautiful photos of your mountain. I don't tell many people I have a blog, and only if I think they would enjoy it and the whole concept of blogging. Some family members read it and respond favourably, others take one look and don't come back! On the whole, I think the best readers and followers are other bloggers.

    1. Yes, I think you are right. It's hard to make people understand about writing a blog, except those who also write a blog!
      There were so many pine cones, I thought I should do something with them! They were just beside the parking lot at Panola Mountain!

  5. Great pictures indeed and good to see you enjoying life.

  7. I don't really tell people I have a blog. Some people know already, but they aren't that interested in reading it. My sister read it when I first started, but I think she stopped too.

    1. I tease my son...that not even my very own CHILD will read my blog! Oh well, when he has read it, he said it was good! People will look at me as if to say, "What are you selling?". It is frustrating.

  8. I only tell people that I blog if it's the right oppertunity, like if I'm eating at a good place and want to take photo's of it, I usually asked permission first and tell them why. They love the free advertising. You know I love Georgia!

    1. Way to go, Sylvia! Not TOO many good stories, we can't have EVERYBODY moving to Georgia! LOL! xx

  9. I do love your blog, Kay, and your pinecone heart today, as well as all the beautiful photos of Georgia, and also, England. I don't really tell people about my blog. It doesn't seem to come up. But my family and friends know and it seems to be mostly about them.

    1. It is a real shame that more people don't know of your blog, Kristi. It is THEIR loss!

  10. Other than family I never tell people I have a blog, don't know why.

    1. You might casually have a Facebook or Instagram account, but you put your heart into your blog. I think I do anyway!

  11. Nice photos of England and Georgia. You look splendid. Yes, I do tell people I have a blog.

    1. Splendid? HA! I told you that Richard is a good photographer!
      I am sure you have a good response when you tell others you have a blog, but perhaps no one expects much of me that is why I usually get a blank stare.

  12. Good Evening Kay, When I tell friends that I write a blog, I do get a range of reactions, some people are really interested and others look at me and you can see they feel very uncomfortable, which I find really odd. Whereas my daughters shout it from the rooftop and tell anyone who will listen about my blog.
    Was the photo of you taken in Brighton, it does look like the pebbly beach found there.
    Your husband takes lovely photographs and I love looking at the landscape as it is so different from where I live.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Best wishes to you.
    Daphne

    1. Hello Daphne!
      The photo of the pebbly beach is in Eastbourne. If you are ever there, it is at the very end of the seafront, near the Redoubt...it used to be called Splashpoint.
      My blog...it is a place where I can write about things that interest me, things that inspire me, things that find to be funny, things of beauty. I love sharing these kinds of things. And it makes me very happy to find people from all the world who reads my little blogs and even leaves sweet comments, like you!
      Best to you also! x

  14. Hi Kay! I knew right away that I had visited you before as I remember that great story about your marrying your pen pal! Makes me wonder if any bloggers have ever married each other. What a pretty place this Mt. Arabia is. Heavens no! I never tell anyone that I have a blog if I can help it. =D

    1. Hello Vee! So nice to see your comment here!
      Funny you should ask about bloggers marrying each other, the next comment here after Martha from Plowing Through Life is from Keith who married his blogging friend from Germany! :-)

  15. Nosey parker...hahaha! I find it so funny how people end up at our blogs with unusual/funny searches. I sometimes mention my blog if it fits the conversation. Why not promote it? :)

      SO happy to see your comment here! Hope you are happy in Germany! See the comment above where I mentioned you?
      Take care! :-)

  17. I like the English coastline around that area, loads of great little towns. I do tell people about my blog and hand out cards but only because I write books and I make a half hearted effort every now and again to sell a few- with mixed results. Usually people glaze over or try to escape and shuffle away...or even worse they hand me a card promoting their blog instead :o)

    1. At least you have something to sell, no one can believe that someone writes just to write, without getting any money for it!
      Love to walk along the seafront in Eastbourne and then, up to Beachy Head! Don't know how much longer I can do that, getting older now, don't you know!

  18. Yep, I tell folks I have a blog and how I have met the nicest people there! Like you!

    1. It's so funny you should say that, I said that same thing when I was speaking with the couple on top of Arabia Mountain!

  19. Another great post, Kay, and now I know what that red stuff is that grows on water.

    1. Thank you, Jenny Woolf! And guess what, in the Spring, the red diamorpha has a snow white bloom on each plant...it is so incredibly beautiful and all of this is just wild, nothing planted, just native!
