Take a Walk in Your Backyard
Feb 22, 2013 02:00AM
I decided to try a quiet walkabout in my own backyard, and was surprised to see how many things I didn’t notice out there before, simply because I never took the time. Right before we had that cold snap, my yard was dotted with beautiful mushrooms, and blossoms of color. The birds, hawks, and squirrels were making the biggest racket, and I couldn’t believe how tall our pine trees have grown.
Even with our recent chilly weather, a short walk in my backyard was invigorating. A little wind on my face felt great. Pulling some weeds around our winter greens was well worth having slightly chapped hands when I came into the house later. Visit your backyard this weekend, and just see what you’ve been missing!
