I just got a new floppy sun hat yesterday. I am a sucker for a nice, big floppy straw hat in the summer time. Especially as I...um...."season". As you can see behind me, the dogwood trees are blooming here in the Ozarks. It is very beautiful where I live. I went for a vigorous 3 mile hike on Sunday afternoon with Ben, Shelley and Wyatt into the Buffalo National Forest, where we hiked to the Indian Rock House. It was once used as a shelter by the indigenous tribes. It is now part of the National Forest system and we are fortunate enough to live very close by. I took a ton of pictures, especially of the springtime foliage...
...the Maypops were (March) popping....
There were fiddlehead ferns coming up around every corner. I love their curly little heads!
I have no idea what this flower is, but it was the only one I saw one our hike and I thought it was very unique and pretty.
Here are Ben, Shelley and Wyatt at the opening of the Rock House.
And here is a pic of Ben, Wyatt and I (with another floppy straw hat on!)
Happy Corner Viewing!
