Walking around!

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk. -Raymond Inmon

The weather today was fantastic which insisted me take a stroll during lunch time. We clearly see spring signs. Instead of concentrating on distance covered I thoroughly enjoyed my time out in sun.

Tomorrow we shall expect rain, snow and strong winds. No worries!

These are my entries for Jo’s Monday walk.

You cannot touch the same water twice

And I say No two springs are the same.

Spring the season.

For Weekend 74, I am presenting images from earlier springs. This year the wet and cold weather didn’t allow the crouses to fully bloom and so far I haven’t seen a bee. It snowed for last two days and temperature is around zero.  Time to enjoy images from archives 😀

Hope you all are having relaxing weekend.

I don’t know what my path is yet. I’m just walking on it ~ Olivia Newton-John

A path in a garden is to relax and appreciate the surroundings.

Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley ~Theodore Roethke

To walk this beautiful path, hiking is essential.lac_28sep18_4

The journey is the reward.
