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.


  1. When I walk my son would often stop at things and I will find out that they are bugs, twigs or snails. He finds the most interesting natural things! And like you he sometimes bring them home =) #ww

    1. My son actually CRIED when I stopped to pick up the pinecone twig. He didn't want me to bring the things home.

  2. Nice shot interesting too :-)

    Have a butterflytastic week & thanks for flying by

  3. I like the way you arranged your nature finds! I live in the country and I'm surrounded by nature. But sometimes I fear I'm missing out on life!

  4. No matter where or when I walk outdoors I find that there's always something to catch your eye. We just have to be aware and open our eyes to see and appreciate it.
    Natures wonderful!

  5. True not much in a big city, but my kids always seem to find something to pack into their pockets!
