I haven't been walking for a few days. Okay, closer to a week. I've been trying to get over a cold and I've finally outrun it!
Today I went for a brisk two-mile walk down the Heartland Trail, which runs adjacent to our land. I walked down the horse trail for a mile. It's lush, green, hilly, bumpy and lined with woods. In short, it makes for a pretty walk.
I kept a running tab of the plants and animals I encountered, just to see how many I could name by sight.
I did the return mile on the asphalt bike trail that runs parallel to the horse trail. Then I walked a short distance back on the horse trail to pick a small bouquet of flowers which I hope to use for drawing practice. Don't tell the Dept. of Natural Resources!
Flora and fauna I saw:
bee balm (purple)
red and white clover
2 white-tail deer
And a partridge in a pear treeeeee....
The virtual tour... - My sons, Jordan and Josh, were wanting to see my new place so I took a bunch of photos to give them a virtual tour. Hopefully they will load quickly today....
