April showers bring May flowers

WE let Mom hijack the blog today.  She and Dad have been walking every day.  It is only a mile, but it is a place to start.  Oak Point Nature Center has cement walkways and natural trails.  These shop the hill they walk up and sown and the lake they walk around.

 Almost to the top of the hill.  I took a picture looking back the way we had come, but it was too small to see the details!

This is Timber chase trail.  It goes along the edge of the lake.

This is from the Dam of the lake!

This is the lake from the start or end of the trail  close to the parking lot.

The wild flowers have been amazing!  

 This looks like a Petunia

This may be Primrose although the flower is smaller than others in the park.

This might be Bastard Cabbage.  It is taking over and crowding out the Blue Bonnets and Indian Paint Brush!

I do not know the names of many of these, but this one is Wild Verbena!

There are just a few.  I will share more over the next day or so!

So basically you went on a dam walk. Our Mommy doesn't like to walk around water. She says to be very careful of snakes. The wildflowers are just lovely!

I don't know the names of any of them, but I LOVE that you've found a lovely place to walk and explore - and I especially love that you're doing it together!

I dearly miss my 3-mile walk around one of the many beautiful lakes in Lakeland (where I lived before moving to GA).

And so does my smaller-sized capris. :)

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

That is a nice walk and the flowers are lovely. We don't know the flowers but the first looks similar to Columbines and the third looks like it could be from the Cornflower family.
