Dad keeps his own hiking trails mowed, so it's like having your very own state park...without all the crowds. I love walking there. Enjoy it with me.
My mother-in-law, Phyllis, has a very green thumb. Her bleeding heart is huge and gorgeous.
The redbud trees were in full bloom and were so beautiful lining the roadsides. The hills are so pretty this time of year when redbuds are alongside the dogwood trees.
There isn't much left of this one, but it's putting on a wonderful show.
The bridal wreath frames an outhouse on their neighbor's property.
The petals are so delicate and they shine in the sun.
This one is on the property that they added to their place. Someday we may build a home there. It has lots of fruit trees, crape myrtles, a gorgeous mimosa tree...it's a lovely setting.
Fungi on a downed log in the woods.
A log bridge that Dad built with my nephew Alexander.
A yellow violet (oxymoron?) near the end of our trail.
Back in the yard again and the lilacs in full bloom against the brilliant blue sky.
I hope you enjoyed our walk.
