Come Take A Walk With Me

When I'm in the "city" at our apartment, I have to walk in the neighborhoods. Up and down, up and down, up and down the blocks I go. It's a pretty crowded area with small homes and postage stamp yards.  The homes are older and on the whole, not that well taken care of. So, in order to not get totally bored, I searched today for something beautiful as I walked.  Would you care to join me?
One lady in particular has a beautiful garden.  She was gardening today and embarrassed because she was talking to her plants when I walked by.  I told her that it must be working.  Maybe I should try that.

 If you look hard enough, you can see beauty almost anywhere.
Wouldn't it be nice to walk out your door and pick a fresh lemon?

I think that even the gnarly roots were pretty cool.  
The cemetery was still decorated for Memorial Day.
This is the little, old neighborhood I walk in. There is a lot of concrete and asphalt. 
So, it's important to find some patches of beauty in the midst of our man-made mess.
Today, that's the direction I chose. 


  1. What a wonderful post! Your pictures are beautiful! That sounds like a fun assignment, to look for beauty....and a great way to live each day. :-)

  2. Enjoyed our walk together. :)
