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

Boardman Trail....................

I had Reina on Friday while Laura worked. We had some running around to do, the store and the to McGoughs for dog biscuits and Bird food. It was so pretty outside that I figured we could go for a walk. As the Boardman trail is right near McGoughs, that is where we went. I had hoped to see some geese, ducks and swans. Nope. no one around, but it was still a pleasant walk in the sun.
Saw this chap stocking up for Winter and enjoying a snack.

The path goes right around the lake, but we only wanted to go a short way. I got blisters on my heels as it was.

Reina is being taught to notice things around her. The sound of the Poplars in the wind is so pretty and the red of the berries. We need to notice these things and I think if we show our children they will grow to love nature. They may not appreciate it now, those sounds and feelings. The wind in your face and the smell of leaves, the sound of birds busy in the trees. How nature comes full circle to death (even in death there is beauty if you look for it) and then the rebirth in Spring that gives us hope for ourselves. God said to look to nature to see Him. I do that, and I see Him in all things. I know that nothing is really gone, it all completes the circle of Life.
