Just Another Muddy Monday...

....I feel like I live in the Rain Forest! But, I have to admit that it's just absolutely gorgeous around here right now. I've never seen so many different shades of green in my entire life! We have had lots of {much needed} rain the last few days and everything is just so happy!!! The forest has literally come to life. We went on a five mile hike yesterday, up to "Twin Falls" and then along "Avery Creek". The water in the falls & the creek was thundering down so loud ~ it was awesome. And the wildflowers are in abundance in the forest ~ like these:and theseand theseand my favorite of all ~ the Pink Lady Slippers...but the best part about this hike is that we shared it with friends:Here's Sandi & Karen standing next to what must be the largest & oldest "Mountain Laurel" we had ever seen ~ it was awesome!

I hope you are enjoying your Springtime, wherever you are. Don't forget to comment on my last blog post for a change to win these awesome earrings:the drawing is tomorrow ~ good luck!

Happy Tuesday!!! ♥

  1. Greetings from Tropical Tennessee, where's it's been raining for days and if it hasn't washed away or rotted, it's 10 times it's normal size!

  2. It seems that so many of my blogfriends are drowning in rain this spring, but we've hardly had any here in SoCal. The hills around here are already summer-brown, which makes me fear that we'll have yet another spectacular fire season.

  3. I know what you mean, Katie! It looks & sounds more like the jungle around here, than the forest :) I love it, though!! And Jana, I wish I could do a rain dance & send some your way ~ hopefully, you'll get some soon :) Thanks for commenting, you two ~ ♥
