Morning Walk


My Dad and I have been walking each morning.
These pictures are from last week 
while my sister Mary Beth was here.
  Our walk took us to the small park at the end of the lake.



















Thanks for coming along with us!
Hope the week ahead brings all beautiful mornings to you!
:)

Hi Laura,
What a beautiful place to enjoy. Your photos look as if you could reach out and touch the flowers. Where I live in Texas it is blazing hot 100+ everyday and no rain to speak of this year. Some of my plants aren't surviving this terrible heat. Other people aren't watering their lawns and they are brown and trees are dying, so sad. I water continually and have a very high water bill but I don't want to loose everything I have worked so hard to have. I am 70 and this is the hottest summer I can remember. Enjoy your Dad , I miss mine everyday even after 31 years have passed. Take care.

Your MORNING WALK post was one that touched my heart. . . especially when I saw your precious dad standing there along. . . I actually got a lump in my throat. Amazing spirits we all share when our lives and deaths have been shared.

Hugs to you Laura. Love your dad with all your heart every day. I miss my mom and dad everyday
and my mom has been gone for 18 years, my dad 12. I swear it only seems like yesterday. What I wouldn't give to take a morning walk with either one of them! Hugs, Mary Anne

it is simply beautiful!
I am happy you got to see your sister at least for a few days.
Did the flowers just seed themself out, or were they planted?
Hope it is not that humid as it is down here.

How delightful to be able to walk in such a beautiful place with those you love. Not only have you captured the beauty that surrounded you, but the spirit of those who walked with you.

Interestingly, I had a "morning" post ready to put up yesterday, but lightning struck our line, and we lost the Internet until around noon today. I barely got my "morning" post in today, before it was no longer morning. ;)

Blessings,
Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage
