She explains, "A Sunday Stroll is not a power walk. It is a slow motion experience. To take a Sunday Stroll is to meander through the garden, with camera in hand, noticing things... like the tender green shoot growing up through last year's leaf litter, light through a translucent petal, or the spider in the tulip cup. "
After reading her words you'll understand why I love her and her blog. Every time I read her words my spirits are uplifted and I feel calm. That's just the way it is, and I know her other readers agree with me.
Anyway, although I don't have a garden myself, I do live out in the country and I live near my mother who has a beautiful flower garden that she shares with me. I decided I wanted to go on a Sunday stroll too and share it with my friend, Aisling. You can too! Just pop over to this post where she invites you to use the Sunday Stroll header she has and then comment on her post with your link. That's how it works.
So, without further delay, here's what I saw on my "Sunday Stroll."
I got a beautiful bright sun over my head...
...and wild fern growing green under my feet.
Oh My! Look at that beautiful sky. What a beautiful day it is!
The first thing I notice is GREEN! My favorite color. This is the fig tree all decked out. This tree came from a clipping from a fig tree that my great great grandfather had.
Good Morning, ladies.
The Snowball bush is blooming quite nicely.
Just before I got to this spot there were two Cat Birds bathing. Well, one was splashing away while the other one waited his turn. If you've never taken the time to watch a bird bathing, you've missed a sight!
Sweetie enjoying our stroll.
There are new residents in this house, and a family of Bluebirds will soon emerge.
And that's what I saw on my Sunday Stroll. I'm feeling as happy and as carefree as this garden frog. And it feels good to be alive. And thank you Aisling for reminding me to take the time to appreciate all the beauty that surrounds me. It's good for the soul!
