Today I am including some wonderful images from a walk we took on another beautiful March day. This is a park we love to go to where we can often see things like frogs and turtles. We all needed to step back from media and away from what we are all facing right now with quarantines and may businesses temporarily closed. So, a walk it was.
My youngest daughter and my grandson were my companions. We started off with an intense conversation about frogs. My grandson took off running in front of us in an oversized hoodie yelling “don’t step on the frogs” which my response was “it is has been a little too cold, I don’t think we will see any frogs today” He argued the point of course which eventually ended up being right.
The sun was warm, but the wind was quite chilly, with seventeen mph gusts we were thankful for the tall grasses that toward over our heads and of course all the other vegetation that blocked some of that wind. When the wind wasn’t blowing the sun was delightful, giving us something to look forward to in the months to come.
We saw many new buds, lots of worms which, of course, led to lots of birds having quite the banquet. Like many of our adventures there was lots of activity- walking, running, lots of talking and suddenly a frog, quite the specimen with vivid details. “I knew it” was whispered so the frog wasn’t scared-and very gently little hands picked him up and sheltered him from the cold wind. We were all quiet for a few moments while boy and frog bonded, then he was gently placed back in a sunny grassy patch off the path out of the site of dogs or runners.
I can’t wait for so many more adventures like this to come.
