I live in North Carolina. It’s an absolutely beautiful state. We have mountains – the Great Smokies – rolling hills of the Piedmont – and a great coastline, including the Outer Banks. If you have not had the pleasure of visiting, you must put it on your to-do list.
One of our state’s gifts to the locals as well as visitors is the Wildflower Program. From spring through fall, medians around the state brighten the roadways with color from plantings of flowers and grasses. Even local municipalities participate by adding their own flowers and bushes in strategic places.
I took this picture a week or so ago. It’s a local and state interchange I travel through frequently and on this particular morning, the yellow daylilies were in full and glorious bloom, covering both sides of the highway and the median.
Perhaps you have something equally as beautiful in your area. Look around. Don’t miss the opportunity to savor the visual feast and carry it with you as you travel.
This is what I call a happy median!
