An April Day in the Park with Rusty

The last two weeks have been spectacularly beautiful in our southwestern Ohio neighborhood.  I took my hound dog, Rusty, to our township park to enjoy the daffodils that line the trail that leads into the woods.  Rusty normally spends 90% of his time in the park sniffing and he wasn’t sure what to make of the pretty yellow flowers.

The trail is a very natural setting, just like walking through the wooded area of an old farm.

Rusty enjoys nosing among the dry leaves, inspecting every tree and bush, and generally giving the park the once-over.

Rusty and I enjoy the park the year-around but I think spring is our favorite time.
