The weather. Isn’t that what everyone is talking about here in the Northeast? I’m sure it was the upper 60’s today. The perfect day to be outdoors. I went for a walk this afternoon- I wore a jean jacket over my sweater and got too hot!
My cat, Spot, kept me company:
“Ping! Ping!” said the windchimes, “look at me! Take my picture, too!”
“I hear you!”, I said out loud.
I love my windchimes, I tied them up myself, using one of my little daughter’s blue hair ribbons.
Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain. ~Henry David Thoreau
A tree hug. Can you see the pinecones? On some days they are open and other days they are closed.
A bright spot of red.
Wooly-bear, do you think it’s spring? Or maybe it’s still fall?
This soft, wet, spongy moss was growing on a rock.
Jacob discovered this little tree. A grape vine twirled it’s way up and caused the tree to grow in this fashion.
By the way, Jacob bought himself a new capgun today with birthday money. . . .
Whenever I see the peeling bark of these types of trees I think of how people are like this, muli-layered. We see the outside layer of everyone but it is rewarding to keep going past the layers into the realness of a person and to experience depth.
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~John Burroughs
