Scenes From a Morning Walk

December 11, 2015

Trying not to take for granted the beautiful place I live—despite the less-than-ideal climate, I do love to take a walk in the morning. The pictures in this post come from two different walks, but are indicative of what I see when I make time to look:

You can barely see it, but there's a hawk on the sign!

If we were to move, I think our trail would be one of the things I’d miss the most. Why is it we take for granted the simple pleasures that are always available to us?

What treasures, what simple pleasures, are right under your nose?

  3. Ah Kathy a post after my own heart. I could see that hawk. They are such magnificent birds. Flowers are so beautiful too. A real treat to these northern eyes. Have a delightful day.

  4. Thanks, Debbie. There was plenty of beauty on display--glad to share.

  5. I know, I know I know!! How lovely to remember to appreicate, and how lovely that you shared! So different from what I see here in Maine (except we do see hawks...)

  6. Rita--I imagine that Florida and Maine landscapes are about as different as you can get! Yet both are beautiful.
