This first day of April was an absolutely beautiful day here in Arkansas. Clear, 82 degrees, a little breezy. Tomorrow is supposed to bring storms — potentially severe storms, which is always a worry in the south — but today was gorgeous. I was unable to resist getting out to play with my camera, so my husband and I had lunch out and whiled away a little time at North Little Rock’s Old Mill, a faux-wood-and-rock structure made of concrete built in 1933 and featured in the opening of the movie, “Gone With the Wind.” The little park surrounding the mill is beautifully landscaped; dogwoods, redbuds, pansies, jonquils and a few other flowers are in full bloom and the azalea bushes are heavy with buds about to pop into color. The photo above was taken from inside the Old Mill. I’ll use a few of the other shots I took today in later posts.
I’ll take the time here to wish a very happy birthday to my oldest daughter. We’re half a country apart, but computers and cell phones keep us closely in touch. Have a very happy birthday, Courtney. I love you.
