Park Perfect

Sunday afternoon found me spending a few hours at a softball park in a neighboring town. 




My girl was practicing, so I ventured to the creek nearby.



Dogwood trees were abundant.




I found myself wishing we had some of these lovely blooms at the farmette. 


Nightly, double header, softball games will have me absent from the blog-o-sphere for a few days.  

Enjoy spring, my friends.

  14. I love dogwoods! They are so hard to grow, but the wild ones will grow anywhere...I just don't get it! I'm only my umpteenth tree...and it's looking pretty sad.

    Love that creek. Our creeks are not very pretty. Always muddy looking!

  23. Enjoy your daughter's games. Beautiful time of year to be outside lots! :) Maybe you'll plant a couple of dogwood trees at your farm? It would be a great way to celebrate the season!

  24. I am enjoying spring. I inherited a grandmother of all dogwoods on my property when it was bought five or so years ago. It sits way back in a semi-shady spot quite a distance from the house. It is not in full bloom yet -- like your beautiful blooming photos -- soon will be be though -- barbara

  25. Oregon is big Dogwood country.. one city had each of their residents plant one or as many as they could. I have a pink one and a white one that never bloomed. Enjoy your outdoors time. We're at the beach.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  28. I love your pretty photos...
    ball games are so much fun....basketball is the game around our place..usually year around as our girls play in different leagues.
    They played soft ball when they were little and I loved going to the games.

    the cornbread I have posted right now is HOT WATER FRIED CORNBREAD...not the kind made in the oven. Just wanted to clear that up before you made your recipe of "regular" cornbread and used WATER...t'would not be very good, I'm afraid.
