Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

A Walk by a quiet pond...........
It was hot again today, its been that way all summer. We decided we would try a short walk in the woods and see how it was. Gerry thought it was not so humid. I beg to differ but gave it a shot. I called Laura and so we met her and Reina at Silver Lake Park. Gerry watched the kids at the playground while Laura and me went for a walk. We decided to walk around the edge of the pond. It was nice and calm and we hoped to see some wildlife being as the kids were not around to scare it all away. Well there were no birds to get pictures of but it was not too unpleasant considering. The pond was covered in waterlillies and they still had a few flowers. There were still some flowers in bloom too but we really didn't see a lot. They complain about invasive species but I wonder...........isn't that really evolution at work. Still a few milk weeds in bloom although I think any butterfly's who intended to eat them are all done by now. The Autumn colours are beginning to appear. This Golden Rod is pretty and my Dad used to grow it in his garden in England. Here its a wild flower The Sumac is blooming and is also the Fall colour scheme. I was so pleased to see this one, I believe its called "Indian Paintbrush" I have not seen it very often. We went back into the woods having seen a few frogs along the way........this little guy was happy to pose for me. Isn't he pretty? We were so glad to get back into the shade of the woods There we came across a pretty little Garter snake. Isn't he cute? He didn't bat and eye or flicker his tongue. I bet he was relieved when we left him alone. From there we hit open meadow and boy was it hot by then. We didn't see any other wild life they were smarter than us and probably taking a nap in the woods. These are all my own pictures. I amlinkng up with Outdoor Wednesday to share my day.
