Spring has sprung in the Ozarks :)

Evenin’ all! I missed taking pics of the Wild Pear trees in blossom. They were beautiful but then a strong wind and cold weather blew them away. However the Red Buds, being later bloomers, are now out in full color and looking gorgeous. The Dogwoods are now coming out.

Thankfully along with the... read more

Hovis declares she is not afraid of eagles!

LOL! Hope you like the photo! If a real eagle were to swoop down towards Hovis she would scream and panic! Got a couple good things to report this evening! First off, we survived COVID! Yes, I came down with it over Thanksgiving. Honestly thought I had the flu as I ached for 2 days. Daniel and Caleb came down next but they didn’t realize it until after the weekend. When Daniel mentioned that he had... read more
