a lunchtime walk

my afternoon walk I would fain forget
all my morning occupations and my obligations to society.
– Henry David Thoreau

these bush roses faded from the sun

the blue agapanthus reflects the blue of the sky

I’ll stay away, I promise…

hello, mr squirrel, thanks for staying still enough for a picture

my puppy, always pulling at the end of his leash, so excited to explore

I wonder if the landscapers really meant to plant a couple tomato plants in this flower bed, I will be keeping an eye out for the tomatoes.

Thanks for coming along with me on my walk today, we’ll do it again another time…

a walk in the woods

This weekend, my sister and I went to visit our Grandma. It was a good visit, a time of sharing what is going on in each other’s life. Grandma is preparing to move, and is ready to pass on some of our inheritance, so we got to pick out some treasures. We helped Grandma with some computer stuff, and had some yummy soup she made. I particularly enjoyed watching the birds at the feeder out on the deck railing. We also went for a walk, down around the pond, and to the area where my Grandpa is buried. It was a beautiful walk through the woods, with the sound of the creek running this time of year. Matilda the dachshund, and Mr Carter the cat walked with us. On the way back, we saw an area that was just filled with clusters of lady bugs, it was amazing to see. I’m very glad we took the time to go visit.
