We just got back from a family reunion down near Birmingham, Alabama. While there, naturally I took a boatload of pictures.

My wife and I enjoyed a road trip up to Charles Town and Shannodale West Virginia on Saturday. I had the honor of meeting Dr. Stan Dickinson, who researched and created an iron furnace exhibit for the Jefferson County Museum.

Here are a few pictures I took this week. This first one is of a dogwood hybrid that is near our town house. This next shot is of a wild dogwood I found in a friend’s backyard. And here’s a shot looking up the walkway in front of our town house. Yepper! Spring has sprung!
I took some photos while meeting some friends in the Highlands Hammock State Park and thought I would share a couple with y’all. A lovely canopy of green and blue is perfect for an afternoon snooze!
