There are certain plants that just have a natural association with gardening in the South: magnolias, azaleas, camellias, and, of course, hydrangeas.⁠

In previous generations, and even now, it could be hard to find a southern home without a big bush of puffy, beautiful hydrangea blooms by the front door. The color of the blooms are decided by the pH of the soil and range from white to blue to the bright pink that you see in the cottage courtyard. Regardless of the color, each hydrangea bloom is a quintessential emblem of southern heritage.⁠

Did you know that North Carolina had a state butterfly? Well, we do! The Eastern Tiger Swallowtails are yellow with black stripes, and have a wingspan of three to six inches. They can be found in many habitats, including woods, fields, near rivers and creeks, or in gardens. They are everywhere around River Dunes enjoying the flowers in bloom! ⁠

If you’ve looked up toward the horizon at day’s end; chances are you’ve seen the breathtaking sunsets that have been splashing vibrant colors across the twilight sky. ⁠

According to Stephen Corfidi, a scientist of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; there is a science that explains sunsets. More vivid sunsets occur when there’s a clean lower atmosphere. Rather than pollution, it’s clean air that is the main ingredient common to brightly colored sunrises and sunsets.⁠

Our coastal space here in eastern North Carolina definitely has some of the most stunning skies at sunset!⁠

North Carolina’s State bird, the Cardinal, was spotted hanging out by the pool this past week!⁠
~⁠
The Cardinal was chosen by legislation in 1943 as North Carolina’s state bird. The Cardinal is native to much of the Eastern United States and doesn’t tend to migrate. While male cardinals are bright red all over, females are more brown but share the red beak in common. Stay on the lookout and maybe you’ll spot one of these guys for yourself!⁠
