Today, kiddo and I had a bowling tournament in the same town where my husband and I have Tuesday bowling league. It’s about an hour drive north of here and it was a beautiful day for a trip.
A lot of the trees are blooming around here right now and the redbuds are really putting on a show. But, we set out in search of dogwoods.
After the tournament was over, we tried the beach area on Clearwater Lake to see if any were blooming there. No luck and, actually, there wasn’t even a beach because the lake is so high.
From there we went to Lon Sanders Canyon Conservation Area. I posted about awhile back, about how we never even knew it was there. We started our hike riverside and I was beginning to think we weren’t going to see a dogwood there either.
We got downstream, and right next to where kiddo planted himself by the water, was the lone dogwood of the day.
It was so beautiful!
Those white petals with green accents make me smile! I mean, how amazing is it, that something so tightly tucked away in a bud emerges so perfectly?
Before we left, we went up the creek towards a waterfall we saw last time. It was glorious, once again.
We didn’t win the bowling tournament, but we both got our averages and above. What a super fun mom and son day!
Thanks for reading!
