Lake Crabtree County Park

Bill and I went to Lake Crabtree County Park near Morrisville, NC last Sunday for a walk.

The park is adjacent to a 520 acre flood control lake and considering how close it is to me, surprising that I've never been there until last weekend.

The park has 215 acres with over 16 miles worth of trails.

There are mountain bike and walking trails and boating on the lake so something for everyone.

I haven't been on a walk yet today but Bill took me out for a delicious mother's day brunch and I heard from my daughter when I got home which is always a pleasure.

I'm feeling pretty lazy so I'm not sure if I'll walk today.

The cooler than usual spring is keeping everything looking very fresh.

Someone at work was talking about the cool weather delaying her long stem roses although other roses are doing well.

The forecast for this coming week is hot, hot and hot so I'm glad we've had some cool for as long as we have.

What a beautiful spot to enjoy nature - hope your weather doesn't get too hot - wish ours would warm up. Here in the Pacific Northwest we have had cooler than normal for months now - highs are still not getting up to 60 -hope that changes this week.

One place that looks like has charms for everyone. So much green, so peaceful out there among the trees.

Belated happy mother's day. Have a great week.

Lovely photos, Carver. A sea of green leaves are a sure sign of spring and shaded summer pathways to come. :)

I really love lush green ferns and trees -- serene places like this one are calling my name even more than usual these days. A need to get back to natural places and joy.

that looks like a nice place to take a walk during the cool weather or even warm weather, could cool off under those tall trees.

have a lovely day.
