My friend has created a backyard haven to attract birds and butterflies. While visiting her home in Hays this summer, I spotted this hummingbird resting on a tree branch.—Janis Harless,  Jefferson, A member of Blue Ridge Energy
I marveled at the beauty of this dandelion’s insides. It took me back 50 years—playing in the backyard, plucking dandelions, and blowing the seeds in the air, like fairy dust into the sky. —Jill Gunter, Ocracoke, A member of Tideland EMC
This little green anole (Anolis carolinensis) loves to lounge in my pink petunia. I would like to believe this is his “home.” —Angela Paim, Seven Springs, A member of Tri-County EMC
We were doing some evening fishing from the dock of my in-laws home on Buffalo Lake in Harnett County and the sky was just breathtaking. —Kristie Wicker, Sanford
My wife and I took a trip up to Fontana Dam over Fourth of July weekend. After visiting the Fontana Dam Basin one evening, we noticed a beautiful fog had begun to settle on the Little Tennessee River.—William Wallace, Raeford, A member of Lumbee River EMC
My dad, Odis Williams had dementia, but this barn in the Alpine community just outside of Greenville brought back fond memories of his childhood.  —Penny Webb, Tarboro, A member of Edgecombe-Martin County EMC
In our small garden behind our house, a mother rabbit had abandoned her young and miraculously they all survived. —Bill Whitesides, Lincolnton, A member of Rutherford EMC

I felt like someone was watching me. I looked out into the trees and about 30 yards away was a great horned owl.  —Frank Ellison, Ocean Isle, A member of Brunswick Electric
This little green anole (Anolis carolinensis) loves to lounge in my pink petunia. I would like to believe this is his “home.” —Angela Paim, Seven Springs, A member of Tri-County EMC

Every day, I take my coffee on the back deck to see the sunrise on Lake Sequoia. Some days are foggy, some days are sunny, some days are cloudy. This particular morning was stunning. —April Mraz, West End, A member of Randolph EMC
