I have been trying to get some walking time in every day. Today I brought my camera along so you could take a walk with me.
Charlie and Lucy are a little impatient at how slowly we are getting started. “Speed it up a little,” says Luce.
Finally, we are at the park.
Head down the path. There is a surprise at the top of the hill.
Stop and notice the beauty of the field as we walk up the hill. It looks so inviting. I love imagining the rabbits who make their home in that field.
Aren’t these pretty? They are so delicate. I have no idea what they are truly called, but I call them Chinese feather dusters. Chinese because they are red, delicate, and they remind me of calligraphy pens.
SURPRISE! There is a pond at the top of the hill. I wonder if we will see any frogs or turtles this morning? Or perhaps a glimpse of the fish from Sam’s fish tank he relocated here last week. 🙂
Aren’t these purple flowers regal?
Or how about the Queen Anne’s lace? Whenever I see these flowers I remember my grandmother. She had these on her farm and I would collect handfuls of them to fill up her vases in the summer when we would visit. She would always exclaim they were her favorite.
There is something so happy about daisies. I imagine them cheering me on as I walk, saying, “Yay, you’re back. So good to see you this morning.”
I don’t know what kind of berry this is. It looks like a cross between a blackberry and a raspberry. But look how it is surrounded by “leaves of three”. I think I will let them be.
Just missed capturing the snake with the camera that slithered past. I guess he was on a morning “wriggle”.
This is “Deer Hill”. Often you will see a few munching as you walk past. Not today, though.
Look how this spiderweb is shaped like a bowl. Wow!
These are some of the biggest leaves I have ever seen. What is this plant?
Stop and gather some dandelions for Oshie. These aren’t allowed in our yard and they are his FAVORITE!
Time to head home. Our footprints linger just a bit longer at the park. Thanks for coming on my walk with me.
