Walking in the Country with Boy and Dogs

Middle son came home a few weekends ago. 
 I had a rare Sunday afternoon free of work or other obligations... of course we took a long walk with the puppies (and my camera.)

Doesn't this look like an oasis?

Robins and yellow flowers...

...spring must be just around the corner! 

Daniel took me on a path I'd never walked before and showed me these huge vines.

I spotted the hole in that tree and took this shot with my zoom to get a closer look. 

It reminds me of, ahem, certain body parts. Am I the only one? 
It kind of goes along with the tree in this post, doesn't it?.

Does anyone know what these little pom-poms are? I love them. 
It's like the tree is having a party.

Daniel, the sweet and kind and funny...and all grown-up.

  1. cute son. :) love your happy pups.

    someone on a blog called those things china berries. not sure if that's correct or not.

  2. Barbara, you always make me smile! I bet you had a blast visiting with your son. Great macros of the twisted vines. And the tree ... well, I do see things in things ... but I actually saw, um, maybe a pelican's eyes/face as he's looking down to the ground. You pom-pom tree is cute ... love the "tree party." It's so good to see you at Walk and Click Wednesdays!!
