Walk with Me, It's Springtime in Oak Hall
I have been working hard on producing some educational, thought-provoking Hubs for my readers and getting some pretty nice feedback. However, since I am not a famous author and instead I am a just a warm and caring person, I like to stay on a more personal level with my friends. Publishers call you my readers. I call you my friends.
Having never produced a photo Hub/blog, I thought I may give it a try with the emphasis being on springtime in the town I currently live in. The inspiration hit me as soon as I opened the front door of our apartment to get my little people off the school bus. I had been inside typing away all day and had not even noticed all the beauty that was outside my window screaming to me until four o'clock in the afternoon!
Springtime's Budding Trees
Yesterday was frigid. I couldn't put on enough clothes to make myself feel any level of warmth and I did not accomplish much, because my anemic body tends to seize up when I'm cold.
Today is hot! The sun is shining like it's August, the birds are chirping, children are mobbed at the local parks and softball/baseball games are going on behind me threefold as I sit at a picnic table, enjoy and write. I even saw a lonely honeybee light onto a dandelion on the walk here...
Springtime Ground Cover
Sometimes as we walk along, we are too busy or too stressed to stop and notice the small things. We are doing ourselves a great injustice by just passing things by and taking them for granted. A good example are the flowers in next the set of photos. People walk by these very same tiny flowers everyday in the spring, but many do not notice just how magically beautiful they are. They truly did, and do through these photos, take me to another place...
I won't speak for them, I think they speak for themselves.
Motorcycles and Baseball
Any way possible to spend some time outside, people are doing it today.
Remember when this was us playing in the park? Days like this sure are sentiment invoking!
Spring's Paint on the Overall Landscape
I love it that through technology, we just took a walk AND played at the park together...Thank you, my friend, for enjoying this beautiful day with me :)
