As I mentioned last week, J and I spent a few days down in southeastern Oklahoma last weekend (where I also did my latest installation for the Decomposition series, "Riot"). It's a beautiful time of year to visit that area -- everything was in bloom: the dogwoods, red buds, wildflowers. Trees were just starting to leaf out. A hint of fungus was starting to appear here and there (that's another photo post entirely). We absolutely loved the scenery, and it was so refreshing to get away from a few days. You don't realize how much you miss the "sound" of silence until you hear it. There are few things I love more than the absence of urban noises - cars, voices, industrial sounds... and in its place just the low hum of the wind and a nearby stream. So peaceful, so revitalizing. We will definitely be back.
I took so many photos that I will have to break it up into a few posts. The flora comes first!
