Nature in the City - (Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday
Every morning my Mother in law and I load the kids up in their strollers, and we go for a walk. Twice around the neighborhood is a mile.
I prefer to walk in nature, and t first glance there is not a lot of nature in the city. I feel more like I'm walking down the center of a speedway track instead of the great outdoors. But sometimes, if you look a little harder, there is a little, here and there.
One day this week I gathered a few natural things that caught my eye on my walk, even if my son and mother in law though I was nuts.
A red leaf with black spots I found to be pretty. A mushroom that had fallen to the ground from high up in a pine tree. A twig, also from a pine tree, with two small pine cones still on. And the carcass of a yellow butterfly, laying at the foot of my mother in laws driveway.
