My Son and I On a Nature Walk - A Photo Gallery
My son asked me one day if I wanted to go on a walk with him in the back, to see some flowers he found. You see, he knows me well, and knew I probably hadn't seen the plants and flowers he had recently when he was back there. It is one of the sweetest things to me, that he asked me to do this. It was just a random Saturday morning in the fall. How could I say no? Of course I would go. I got dressed and we were off. This gallery is to share the things we found while on this walk together.
Our Photos of a Nature Walk
Photo 1 - We went right to the common ground area, which looks like the "woods" to some degree, at least all seasons but the wintertime. I love this area, not many people really go back there. My son is in the corner of this photo, he is 13 years old. This area is a water run off, that looks like a creek a lot of the time.
Photo 2 - This is a different angle of the same area, but looking back up where the water comes down from when it comes down. This is an interesting area where the trees tend to reseed themselves freely. They try to keep the growing to a minimum around here so the water can run through freely. I have some of my own thoughts on that too of course. I do enjoy all the trees back there though.
Photo 3 - Some pretty little white flowers we came across. These and most of the others will be just wild flowers.
Photo 4 - Some golden yellow wild flowers.
Photo 5 - A pink flower, and piece of wheat or type of grass.
Photo 6 - I love these little blue flowers. They are like fuzzy or hairy little pom flowers. I know that butterflies and moths also like these very much. My son liked these a lot, or seemed to know that I would, and made a real point of pointing them out to me.
Photo 7 - There were these large, bulging seed pods that were unique. They were at the busting open point, where the seeds would fly off little by little in a breeze. Nature is so amazing to me.
Photo 8 - More, but different, bright golden yellow flowers.
Photo 9 - Poison Ivy, that has seen better days. We all hate this plant, as you can imagine! It can turn very pretty colors in the fall. What got me about the poison ivy we saw on this walk, was it had these pustules or blisters or something going on with it. It seemed it would be worse than ever to touch it. It could have been a kind of bug that laid tiny eggs on the leaves though or something. I am just not sure. Regardless, we steered clear from it.
Photos 10, 11, & 12 - These are all different kinds of white flowers. Photo 10 has yellow in the center. Photo 11 just has tiny white round flowers, and photo 12 has pinkish tones in the center. I liked all of them, even though not overly fancy or anything.
Photo 13 - Some kind of grassy, and yellow plant. Not familiar with this one at all.
Photos 14 & 15 - Both of these were very unique looking leaves. Well number 14, not as much though the color was neat especially with the sun shining on it to see the color better. Number 15 had the strangest, linked leaves. It was very cool to see them.
Photo 16 - A kind of pink flower or plant of some kind. I liked the color of pink that it is.
Photo 17 - Almost back home, to the tall trees that I love to hear when the wind blows.
** This was a little unexpected gift to me, that I will always be thankful for. Sometimes just looking around a little in the world right around us can bring us some of the greatest joys and discoveries.
