the path taken
This morning as we set out for our walk, the gentle breeze showered pink confetti on us from the cherry blossoms. What a delight!
I took my camera, hoping to give you a hint of how wonderful this new walk is. I realized, as I snapped these silent frames, that the part you are missing...the caress of the breeze, the songs of the birds, the energy of spring...would leave these photos a bit flat and uninteresting.
Here's a photo at the opening of our new path taken...it's like an invitation into a secret world. If you'd asked me before if there was such a path, straight instead of right over the footbridge, I'd sworn no. As I start out this path, I like to pretend that it's only visible to me and Baby. It's easy to imagine since nobody else ever seems to take it.
Here's my favorite tree. I can't wait to see her draped in green! When? When? Spring, you are such a temptress!
I love seeing the turtles all lined up on this log. Yesterday, I counted 14! 15, if you count the one who slipped into the water just as we approached.
