Walking. It’s something we do every day.
We love it for getting our exercise. But, one reason that I choose walking is because it gives me the opportunity to actually ‘talk’ with my husband. And the other reason, is because it gives me more time to notice the world around me. I know, that’s no surprise to you….especially as it seems that my second most favorite thing to do is to go out, camera in hand, and see what I can discover.
Maybe that’s why I notice things that change along my paths. Like the first day the Crocus stick up their pretty heads.
This week, it was as if all the Crocus got together in their loamy underworld and agreed on the very day that they would all emerge. There was a carnival of Crocus color everywhere. I walked late that day, so it wasn’t a good time to be taking anyone’s portrait….especially one as lovely as a Crocus. The next day, I knew exactly where I wanted to go to take some shots. And wouldn’t you know….the Honey Bees also learned of this most excellent discovery. They and their hungry bellies were out in full force capturing delicious nectar. And I was attempting to capture them a midst their aerobatics. Hope you enjoy the moment, too.
This quote from Oliver Wendell Holmes truly says it all…
“The ‘Amen!’ of Nature is always a flower.”
Snow and freezing rain are in our forecast, but I’ll keep the memory of these sweet purple faces in the forefront of my mind.
