I spent the last morning in May enjoying the outdoors. First up, quick garden stroll to see what’s new. This squash is entirely too tiny to be flowering already…but there ya go!
Yum, first tomatoes growing nicely (this is the bucket one).
This is where last falls “pumpkin guts” landed, right along the edge of the garden where nothing grows, lol…
Next door neighbor built this pretty patio last fall & they just filled it with flowers. Pretty view for us as we garden.
Then I hopped in the car for a hike through Hay Creek before the temps hit 90.
One of my favorite smells of summer!
Not sure what these are besides “pickers” but aren’t they pretty right now? The park is loaded with them.
Wild blackberries are coming along, I can’t wait to go snack on these.
This is how you cross the creek, there are 2 cable bridges to navigate. I love to find a rookie stumbling their way across, it takes some practice. I can cross now with my tackle bag, a fishing rod, camera, etc in hand in about 2.3 seconds.
Hay Creek follows old Rt 82 which flooded out about 10 yrs ago. Mother nature is quick to take over.
This bridge is where my morning turned to hell…bugs started attacking & didn’t let up until I got back to the bridge a mile later.
I think this is the old mill house.
Rounding the first corner on the climb to the reservoir you immediately hear this little waterfall.
Nice & shady, I love the ferns everywhere.
First view of the lake…
The bugs really got to me by here so I turned back, I couldn’t outrun the things. I don’t like wearing it but I won’t go back again without a can of Off, lol. Hope you enjoyed my stroll.
