Walk in the Park

Walk in the Park

Despite the bitterly cold morning, the afternoon turned out to be warm, sunshiney and beautiful! We took the opportunity to walk around the local park - and already there were practice games of baseball filling the fields. Granville Athletic Park, one of the few in our county is relatively new - merely a few years old. But one of the most inviting features of the park are the long, fully-paved walking trails around all the playing fields, through a bit of woodland, and over some of the wetlands. The park was built on old farmland so there isn't a lot of woodland activity; still, it's an easy walking place - much easier than our gutted gravel private road.

C's jam is today and we've company for dinner - so it'll be another busy day. The temps are supposed to rather high, so I'll be spending a bit of time harvesting the weeds that are already happily blooming ....

Have a great day!

Glad you got out and about yesterday Lin. Temps are warming up here too and SUN today. Yeah.

Your painting is lovely -- subdued -- just the right look for this time of year when nature is still resting before exploding into color and fullness.

Have a good day with the jammers!!
Big hugs,

Love the picture. You wouldn't know it was in a more urban setting.
