I love this tree! I call it Beaver Lake's Joshua Tree...it stands alone in the meadow.
Wild Violets? So pretty and dainty!
During the spring break last month, I took the kids on our first outing of the year to Beaver Lake...lots of new plants growing, budding and blossoming!
Beautiful tulips...not sure what variety, though I have seen them in catalogs.
A single pinecone.
Gorgeous purple hyacinth.
Looking up a pine tree.
New tulip bud.
I believe this is a dogwood just starting to bud.
My favorite photo....I think I may frame this one. The sky was SO blue that day...and that tree so striking against it!
Looking through a hole in a stump..focusing on the background.
My kids all in one shot...this is rare! Caitlin did not want to stop and turn around for me...that took a little coaxing!
Cara...she loves the outdoors like I do!
Caitlin...she does too...she's the one to get dirty though!
Brendan...stopping to get something out of his shoe.
A tiny new sumac plant coming up in the pines.
