A Russle

(Took this photo in the park, a tree sanctuary. I often wonder how this shape came to be)

grows to excited chatter

a swift breeze moves through

as I near the shaded grove

I pause at the sound of change

Flower Of the Day FOTD

Meet Day Lily, we met at the park yesterday. She was one of two, all by their lonesome. Interesting, I thought 😊.

Off Color

My walks feel more like an escape from detention. So I find myself paying closer attention to the landscape. The park grounds keeper is clearly still struggling with this delayed upkeep. Wildflowers have taken over.

Often, I would come across a patch of yellow, with a pink one snuggled comfortably in their midst. How nice!

Garden Snail

Met this fellow in the park yesterday. He practically stood still for his closeup. Citified! I read somewhere that squirrels eat garden snails at times. Must be during times of ‘making do’. I’ve lived through a couple of those myself😊. Even so, what a way to go – inners gone, shell tossed.
