Matteson Trail, Hampton, VA

This afternoon we decided to take a walk close to home and went on the Matteson Trail. It's a 3 mile long paved walk around the Hamptons Golf Course.

Sammy sticks his head out of the car window on the way to the golf course.

It was a windy, spring day. Everything was so green. And plants were all in bloom! Dogwoods.

Although everything along the trail was very pretty--Sammy's behavior made the walk not so pleasant for me. He was in a "sniff and mark" mode. We would walk a few steps; and then he'd have to stop and mark. A few more steps, stop and mark. I thought we'd never get through the three miles! Sammy and some fleabane.

All along this trail, the trees have holes in the trunks. I'm always expecting to come across a gnome or fairy family living inside of one! Or maybe a squirrel!

 PG in the pretty, purple phlox. Matches her new collar!

Some plum blossoms. So many pretty colors on this walk. Yellows, purples, pinks!

The azaleas were especially beautiful in full bloom.

Wish you were here,
Sammy & PG
