Week Five: Art Inspires

When you are surrounded by nature and art, you can’t help but BE inspired. There is just so much beauty everywhere. To not appreciate what is right in front of you is just plain unspeakable. I find it depressing when even the most obvious ones do not even elicit a positive response. How much more for the simple and ordinary things.

From the visually appealing art museums and art studios to the otherwise mundane secret world of street graffiti.


From one mountain peak to the next lush valley. From the serene lakes to the roaring waterfalls. From the colorful wildflowers to the tallest evergreens.


From delectable fresh organic cuisine to savory cheap food truck options. From Β hundreds of independent breweries to world class wineries.


From its friendly locals to the eclectic street performers.


When inspiration strikes, let it happen.Β 

All these led me to create THIS.


And there will be more…

Thank you Asheville for feeding my soul with art and beauty!

  1. So beautiful, what a lovely inspirational post filled with art and beauty. Love the coneflowers by the pond the best – taken from a great angle. I listened to you and got the traveling post published πŸ™‚

      1. No, not hard at all Belle, but it takes me twice as long to post in my Gardening and Travel sections of my blog. It seems like the food section is well covered. :). I do have other travel ones that I’m working on, but I’ve been on the trot right thru the summer with travel, that I haven’t had time to fully devote to my blog. Yes, they are coneflowers, the butterflies love them, so do the yellow finches and that makes my heart sing πŸ™‚

          1. My gosh, you’re so funny Belle, my own talk show would be a right flop! :). Off to Toronto tomorrow, I won’t blog on it, but a very special island not far from the city that used to be our fav when we lived there. It’s called Wards Island, it just takes you back in time, so juicing up the camera and will report when I return. YOU should be a travel writer, now how about adding that to your Travel Nurse title? πŸ™‚

            1. Thanks, but thats just too much pressure! haha. Wow, I haven’t replied to any of my comments in 3 days? Sorry, we have an out of town guest who is keeping us busy with tourist guide duties. I haven’t done a post since last week! I am overdue!!! Anyways, enjoy your trips. As always, I’m looking forward to your pics.


  2. This is such a great post! I really do need to travel to Asheville, now! You’ve got me so hooked on this city and I haven’t even been there. It’s such a special feeling to be in a place that inspires you. πŸ™‚
