Today’s post comes from one of my daily walks along the lake road, near my home at the Lake of the Ozarks. This time of year is truly a re-awakening, particularly when all the Dogwood trees begin to bloom!
Flowering Dogwood is the state tree of Missouri and I look forward each spring to see the amazing display of them throughout the Ozark woodlands. Here are a few images from my last walk:
And a closeup of the beautiful flowers:
Coming up … more Florida wildlife, more Missouri spring woodland wildflowers, and a new nursery at my back door!
