There's beauty to be found all across Kentucky. I grew up in the mountains, lived in the Lexington area and Louisville for about 14 years, then here in western KY for the last half of my life. The landscape is different and I find it is hotter here where I am now. Some of those plants I grew up with just won't grow this far southwest.
I hope you can stay for a longer visit next time, Polly. You have a lot of exploring to do.
