Corner View- Self Portrait and Where I live

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!

you look great in floppy hats! And thanks for the nice walk in the park, it looks really it was a great day.

We have something (else) in common: as I "season", I'm also appreciating more and more summer hats!

Heather said...

Love the hats! Beautiful area you live in - very similar to the area of Tennessee where my parents live.

I think I need to use that term "season" very apt.
So nice to be near a national forest.

Debra said...

Thanks for the guided tour of your corner.

My pleasure, everyone. Yes, I think "season" is much better than "aging"!

Hi, Wolf! I have been enjoying your blog for awhile now!

Wow, that's massive nature!

I tried floppy hats - the wind takes them all away. That's the Netherlands in a nutshell.

Flowtops, I often add a "stampede string" to my hats, so that if I am out on the lake or somewhere windy, I don't lose my chapeau!
