Springtime In The Smokies

I thought I’d do something a little different this week, so instead of just talking about our various gardens, flowers, and critters, and sharing a few photos, I decided to make a video for you, which I hope you’ll enjoy. I mixed in sections of me walking our paths, to make it feel as if you’re walking the trails with me, whilst enjoying seeing the various flowers, insects, and birds. I know how very much I’ve been enjoying watching hiking videos during these past few weeks, with not being able to get out and hike ourselves, and thought it a great time to make just such a video, so you too can enjoy a “hike” here in the Smokies during springtime . . .  So Enjoy!

I thought I would reshare this wonderful video as well of our kayaking trip last March when the toads were singing their delightful springtime serenade all around us the entire time we were paddling along, and it was such a treat!

Thanks for joining me on a couple of virtual outings, I hope you had as much fun as I did!
