...Springtime arrived in Central Illinois! We were greeted with the sight of this beautiful tree as we drove into Carlinville Thursday.
Mom is doing very well and looks great now that she has her hair permed again. For the past couple of years she let it go straight and still kept it very short. Since she had never worn it that way, she was nearly unrecognizable. Thanks, Joyce; she looks like Mom again!
Mom's favorite nature area close to home is Beaver Dam State Park. Earlier today she and I took a drive through the park enjoying the wildflowers and lake and geese.
Here are a few shots we took. If anyone can identify any of the flowers or plants, please let me know what they are. OK, all you smartypants, even I can identify the dandelions...giggle!
Tomorrow we drive the short final leg home. It's like moving when we have to unload the RV after such a long trip...oh well, it will be good to be home again.
