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

cooling off in the woods

We went for a walk in the woods the other day. It was supposed to be cooler. Well it was but not cool enough for me.Fall is in the air, the leaves are just showing signs of changing. The yellow daisies and later flowers are out now. Funny how in Spring the flowers are yellow, daffodils, primroses etc, now again in Fall the Black eyed Susies and many others are yellow, a deeper yellow like Sunflowers. Anyway, we went to the playground but there were a few people there and Reina asked to go for a walk so off we went.

This pond is on one side and there are a couple more in the same area. This one has Water lily on it. Lots of turtle but they were shy

I wanted dragon fly but they didn't cooperate. So I got a water lily instead

I can do without the heat but will miss summer walks in the woods and days on the beach. With Fall coming and back to school we must make the most of the last days of summer

I love taking pictures of the wildflowers. Seldom see wildlife because of those two rowdy young ones. Was the same when mine were kids.
This is not Queens Annes Lace.........I think of it as Cow Parsley, not sure of the correct name

I mean, its not that we do a lot but I have to think the kids will remember the time we spent with them.

The sky was beautiful and strange. Looked like a rasher of bacon

We were pooped,amazing that it was only in the 70s and should have been cool after the high temps this summer but.........too much for us. We left the park and managed to get away without going back to the playground by me tempting them with ice cream. We went to Moomers................yum!!!!

An icecream sounds delightful! A rare commodity for us on the island since we must travel far for supplies and stand in line for the 12 cars ferry...
Happy days will be remembered by those youngsters always Janice!

It's funny, but as a child I never noticed that summer was winding down in August. Now I notice the chill in the morning air, and the shorter days. You are right, we should make the most of these last days.
