This is the 'tree house' and is built around a clump of trees. It appears to be built almost entirely from reclaimed lumber, windows and columns, and is just adorable!
Hubby just loves a swing! Note all the different shapes and sizes of windows - fun!
Sweet shrub in abundance!
Lily of the valley everywhere!
Woods Poppies - mine are lovely right now, too!
And the following are pictures taken on the 3 1/2 mile ride around Reflection Riding. Enjoy!
Wildflowers in abundance! I loved the soft carpet of these little beauties!
Native azaleas, aka honeysuckles. The fragrance is amazing!!!
More lily of the valley, and soft, pretty ferns!
The Gazebo at Siren Pond - there was a hummer visiting these pink azaleas, but he was shy!
A bamboo garden, with rooms inside - a great place for children to play!
A tiny wild iris - only about 3 inches tall, and the blooms were almost that big across. I want some of these for my garden!
A gorgeous trillium. I have seen yellow and white ones, but never one this color - it's so beautiful!
More native azaleas. Heavenly!
Assorted colors of azaleas.
Now, oddly enough I didn't get any pictures of Lookout Creek. It was very full after all of the rains they had been having, but it was very picturesque. Because of the creek, and the ability for members to canoe the creek for free, using the center's canoes and equipment, we joined the CNC. The membership fee is $60 per family, and since we'd paid the $7 per person entrance fee, they deleted that from our membership fee. We are looking forward to visiting in a few weeks and canoeing Lookout Creek.
This visit was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation, and we look forward to visiting both facilities many times in the future. Thanks for joining me on this tour. Blessings friends, Becky
