Praley Street, near the cemetery.



This is a picture of Praley St, SW in Valdese, looking more or less to the north.   The cemetery is to the right, with the old cemetery being at the top of the hill.  The little church in the picture is the Amazing Grace Community Church, and it is on the corner of Praley and South Avenue.  The mountains ( I do believe they're part of the Blue Ridge chain) in the background are quite visible, and if you click on the picture to make it full size, you can see them clearly.  For some reason I have to click it twice to make it work (not double click, two single clicks.  Weird.).   Main Street in Valdese is a mile give or take, past the church.  For the rest of the world, that's 1.6 km.

To say it is springtime in Valdese right now would be an understatement.  You can't hardly get more spring than this.

Patti Anne went with Pickles & me on the dog walk this morning, and she took the picture.  Patti Anne, not Pickles.  Pickles mostly snapped at bees, and we're all happy she didn't catch any.

Postcard beautiful and the perfect shot for Easter Sunday!

Grace: In a way spring came late this year - it was the coldest winter I've experienced here. Things seem to be a 10-14 days behind where they were last year, leaf wise. But now, its a different story. Its hot.

Heather: There are definitely some picture worthy places around here. I thought it was a nice pic.

Stephany: Cool. If you see a mid-sized black and white "ticked up" hound running around, that's Pickles.

linlah: I know what you mean. It looks pleasant.

Thanks for the compliments! I love the view. There are actually two churches. The Amazing Grace in the front and High Peak Baptist further back.
