Butterflys all over the Place!


My naturalist husband planted a bunch of Butterfly bushes in our back yard and right now the butterflies are every where!  The name of the bush certainly is the right one!

I was so sure they were GONE!


Yesterday I didn’t see any ants anywhere!  Then as I was bending over to do my stretches there was one right at my feet.  It look dead but then it waved and crawled away.  Argh!

Today I was so sure they were gone.  I looked all around on the counters and the floor and didn’t see any.  Then when I was doing the dishes I moved a notepad and a whole group of them were chatting away. 

Maybe tomorrow!

Valle Crucis Ghost Story

Another frightening story from Valle Crucis in The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina!

 

The name of the town comes from two streams that meet at right angles in the middle of the valley.

Two men were driving by an old stone church on highway 194  when a huge dog with gleaming eyes jumped out in front of them. The dog was a big as a man and had bristling fur and massive yellow teeth. The driver sped away only to see the dog in the rear view mirror following and actually keeping up with the car that was going 80 miles an hour!

The men really believed this dog was from Hell so the driver hit the accelerator one more time and sped over the bridge that goes across the two streams.

The dog stopped following them and the men wondered what it was about the water that stopped this supernatural dog!

The writer of the story claims he knew the driver of the car and considered him to be an honest man.  The writer is very cautious about traveling near the graveyard of the old stone church and counts the seconds before he gets to the bridge!

I found this great ghost story on Stories from the Mountains online publication
