Spring has finally arrived in Lake Norman! There is a profusion of blossoming trees and bushes and signs of life as tiny leaves are forming on myriad plants and trees. And the gorgeous Carolina Blue Skies are so invigorating. April is one of my favorite months in Lake Norman!
I am thrilled to announce that THE local expert on plants and wildlife, Christine Lisiewski (who works at my favorite Dearness Gardens Nursery in Huntersville), has agreed to share some of her amazing photographs for my monthly calendars the first of which is this stunning photo of a Monarch butterfly. Not only is she the plant buyer at Dearness Gardens but she just recently was picked to design and implement a butterfly garden for The Preserve at Robbins Point and she even teaches classes about butterflies and native gardens. Visit her new blog: Christine’s Beautiful World.
I would also love to use one of your favorite photos depicting life here in Lake Norman. (Optimum size is a landscape photo about 2MB or about 1600 x 1200 pixels). I will give a $25 Gas Card to anyone who provides a photo that I use as one of my monthly calendars. If you’d like to submit a photo or an idea for a future calendar, please send it to:
