Angel in the Fog

The fog just rolled in off the lake making it very cool.  Yesterday was 76 degrees,  today it's 55 degrees.  But the effect of the fog over the bright green spring foliage is gorgeous.  The arbor Mr. RTH built last summer from our old juniper bushes is barely visible from the front of the house.  Our worn and tattered angel stands gracefully in the center of the driveway - hoping there won't be another storm to blow her over again.  ( She lost both arms this winter!- I have ordered another one so she can enjoy her retirement years).  The lilacs look surreal with the fog in the background.  And finally the red tree peonies bloomed this year, maybe due to the warm winter and maybe just because they wanted to.Their vibrant red color is a stark contrast to the grey fog around them.  Tomorrow we are heading for Blackberry Farm in Tennessee for a long awaited treat.  I am sure in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains,  more  foggy mornings will be experienced and  enjoyed this week.
