I was fortunate to be able to go for a walk in the park over lunch today. (I'm sensitive to the heat and sun, so many summer walks have to be in the early morning or after sunset.) Today was a perfect day with a nice breeze and some clouds.
Walks are great for getting out of your head, out of your stress, and noticing the world around you. I especially like being able to walk the same areas regularly. It gives me a chance to enjoy the daily and seasonal changes, watching ducklings and goslings grow up, anticipating the return of the red-wing blackbirds in the spring, all the good stuff. :)
Today's list of notables, in no particular order, includes:
Oodles of robins
Multitudes of red-winged blackbirds
Geese and goslings
Mallard ducks and ducklings
Wood ducks and ducklings
A great blue heron
Wild irises (my all-time favoritest flower!)
Enjoy your nature!
