Wicked Walk 6/3/2015

Even after a week of sunshine there are still puddles everywhere but I’m not complaining!  I spent an hour drinking coffee on the porch, watching the hummingbirds fight, then slipped on my tennis shoes for a walk. Here is what I saw. The Mama chicken and her two rapidly growing children, ready to escape the…

Wicked Walk 4/15/2015

April 15th.  Tax day in the states, yet having mine turned in with 48 hours to spare, I was able to walk in peace. Here is what I saw. At the end of our driveway, in the morning sun, a plain purple flower seemed quite glamorous to me. And some little spiders have been mighty…

Blueberries!
