Nature’s Bounty

We have had it be so cool lately that evenings and mornings are just downright cold however it seems the heat begins to kick in as of today.  We’ve been really enjoying evening walks and I guess it’s a good thing since we’ll be waiting until the heat of the day subsides some before we head out.  There’s an amazing rose on our route that smells just as good as it looks.  I only wish I could share the heavenly smell with you!  There’s been a virtual explosion of blooms lately and that may be do to the cooler weather…whatever the reason I love to see what there is out there.  I like to bring my son and Gabby along on my walks.  There’s a little hidden park off the beaten road that they enjoy playing in.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen any other kids over there for some reason.  I don’t complain because it’s very peaceful.  It can still be quite warm by the time we reach the park so the shaded areas feel great.  Fear not this lonely slide finely gets company once Mike and Gabby get going.  Here’s my little monkey on the monkey bars.  Someone put some money into this park and I appreciate it.  Looking at my kids having such a good time I feel like the richest man in the world.  These red seeds on the trees really are beautiful.  I always loved them as a kid because you can drop them and they float down to the ground like graceful helicopters.  Finally it was time to leave the little park once again.  I expect we’ll return once again today. 

 

This morning I went out to inspect our garden and was amazed at the Pansies that are flourishing.  I could barely fit them all in a little vase.  It seems such a cheery way to start the morning don’t you think?  I had a time of it deciding where to put this vase…should I leave them on the outside patio table?  I guess it doesn’t matter, wherever this goes it will brighten things up!  The front yard has its treasures too.  Just look at this delightful little rose!  The morning light provided such a nice effect today.  The cool of the morning provides a lot of dew that the flowers relishbut I admit it makes me wonder just how cool it will be as our time to go to a new mountain cabin approaches…I’m think it will be pretty cold in the mornings and evenings.  Whatever it is I am excited to see it and I don’t intend to miss the forest for the trees.  This is it for a bit my friends, have a great day!

    1. Delightful blossoms without a doubt my friend. I personally still love wild blooms the best but I'll have to wait for our cabin adventure coming up next month to get any of those on my camera. Have a great weekend as well.

  6. You and the kids sure had a colorful walk to the park. Those beautiful pansies look good anywhere. Our mornings have been cool too, but so hot later on. It's now in the high 90's and no rain in sight.
