The Beautimus Downside of Spring

















We went fishing yesterday.  Once again - it’s about as lucky as I’m gonna get when it comes to being able to take some kind of a break - or - vacation - period.





















The wild Dogwoods and Redbuds are in full bloom.  The water isn’t as high as it will be - soon.





















Some areas looked really pretty.


























This spot could tempt me into stepping up and hiking in to see what lies beyond what gives me the impression of a natural entrance.





















And then - we reach this spot.  See the haze?  You should have seen the cloud that erupted when my lure banged against a pine tree branch.





















This is not trash - or - muck that you find in a neglected pond.  This would be - pollen.





















And it is - everywhere.  This is what we get after washing the truck two days before - and - after using the windshield washer fluid.

I caught only one fish - a Black Crappie.  But - it was the biggest!  And - no picture.  Go figure.

And now I'm behind on everything at home.

Beautiful photos!! I miss seeing lots of redbuds in the spring, there were way more of them in Missouri where I grew up than we have here. I bought one and planted it outside my office window cause I love them so much. :)
