A Beautiful Day

Hubby and I went day-tripping Friday.  We drove to the Lake of the Ozarks.  It was a beautiful spring day and the redbuds and wild plums were all in bloom.   Here is a shot of part of the lake near Bagnell Dam.  I didn't take as many photos that I would have liked...the traffic was pretty heavy and moving fast, so by the time I spotted a good photo op it was too late to find a place to pull over.  The redbuds are one of my favorite flowering spring trees.  We have a few in our yard and several down by the small creek at the edge of our pasture.  Don't you just love spring?  I say that it is my favorite season...that is, until autumn comes around! 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. 

Until next time...
