Nature Walk: 4/22/17

 

There is nothing like going to the arboretum to calm the senses. This time I took my mother with me ❤ .

 

 

When taking pictures, I made a point to get the name tags of our subjects. 

 

 

My mothers muse was the weeping Higan cherry.

 

 

These delicate pink flowers made me giddy and feel like a girly girl again, lol.

 

 

And mine was the Cucumber Magnolia.

 

 

We had others as well but…

 

 

We both came back to the Higan cherry one last time before we left.

 

 

All I can say from this experience is that when you feel drawn to visit a place in nature, follow your heart and go. And if anyone else comes to mind, they may want to go too 😉 ❤ .

Nature Walk: 4/17/15

 

Sometimes a sudden trip is all we need and the past is one place you can go. Two years ago I made a quick decision to visit friends in Fairfield Iowa. Before we met up, I stopped off at Chautauqua Park. The cherry and redbud trees were in full bloom and the air was filled with the sweet smell of flowers.

 

 

As blooms filled the air,  spring beauties and wood violets speckled the ground.

There were flowers almost everywhere I looked.

 

 

I must have been under this tree for at least an hour, lol.

 

 

After an hour or so at the park, I finally met up with my friends at the town square. There weren’t any flowers there but ourselves ;). See you next week!

Silently connected.

Roots run like rivers through the ground.

From one seed a tree has all it needs. Everything is here, everything is still, silent and reflecting.

A water droplet pays tribute to a  Hawthorn berry’s memory.

The snow was melting and the air was filled with fog. Since I’ve never taken pictures in this type of weather before I thought I’d check it out. And I loved it!

Jewels of Life.

Water has always been one of my muses.

One of my favorite pictures was of the tree with a foggy backdrop, which one is your favorite?
