Such pretty colors

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

I love spring. Watching nature come back to life always amazes me. Spring is a little late this year but there are finally lots of colors to see. It's almost as if the trees and plants have realized that it is mid to late April and they have bloomed overnight. There are whites, pinks, yellows, purples and vibrant greens everywhere. Now, if the temps would just even out, it would be perfect! Around here we have fluctuated from 35-70 degrees for the last 2 weeks with plenty of storms rolling through. (Monday night even brought tornado warnings; a little odd in my neck of the woods.)

Tonight, my niece and I walked the fitness trail. While it was somewhat breezy, it was nice. We even saw a groundhog enjoying the sunlight. We also saw some ducks, lots of robins, a cardinal and other birds I can't identify yet. She was disappointed that we didn't run into any people walking their dogs but the lacrosse game was cool. One of the teams even scored twice as we walked past.

I wish I had taken pictures of the chalk writings on the trail. The messages were for the Girls On The Run club from the high school. Sayings like UR awesome, great job, believe in yourself and words of encouragement for each girl by name. It was nice to see and my niece and I enjoyed reading them as we walked. It was a very positive walk for us.

    I love girls on the run! Last fall I had the privilege of having a foster girl stay with me for a week and she was in that program. It really built up her self worth!!!

    I also love spring! It brings fresh beginnings!

    What a lovely walk! I love the idea of the encouraging words written on the trail. Very cool idea! Makes the thought of getting out there for that fitness walk more exciting.

    Things are not in as full of bloom in my area as they are in yours, but the temps have been on a roller coasters ride. Another warming trend coming next week. I can't wait!

    I love girls on the run, it is such a good start for those girls, wish we would have had that when I was a kid. Maybe I wouldn't be where I am today if I had been in it. Glad you enjoyed your walk. So nice that spring is here.
