Arbor Day State Park




Sterling Morton had a great idea and helped establish  this interesting park and foundation in Nebraska City, Nebraska.A lovely visit and I hope to repeat it through the seasons.




 A tiny little country home






The white smell the best


Apple orchard


Carrion Beetles


 Look at all the redbuds blooming on the hillsides, they are everywhere.

  1. Great pics! I like the monument, and also the old barn.

  2. Quite an estate here, nice to see it preserved.

    The "treaty" did not work out too well for the Pawnees in the the long term. You have to wonder what they must have felt at the time it was signed. Defeat? Resignation?

  3. Hi Steve, Looks like you are really enjoying Nebraska... It's gorgeous there. Love all of the blooming trees/flowers...

    OH--since that house is so tiny ---do you think they'd sell it to me for $1 or two???? I could enjoy that ole tiny thing.... ha ha ha

    Have a great Sunday.

  4. Arbor Day has contributed so much to the country. The more trees, the better. Love how all's coming alive, such pretty photos. And that barn, ahhh! Thanks for stopping by. Gator meat tastes sorta like chicken, but tougher. Folks marinate it over night (usually).

  5. gulp, a small little white house? GeezLouise, that is some house...can't imagine cleaning it though :)but as my husband says, if you can afford a house that big, you can afford a maid- I guess!
    Love the photo of the single daffodil Steve; great job!
