On the way to the bikepath i pass Greenbriar park, where this huge tree shades the swings
and if you take the time to notice, as you get closer...
it actually fans out to four trunks!
The crotch in the tree is quite large. Lola could fit inside of it comfortably
(i feel another photo coming...)
and this is a little stream just off the road i walk on. I walk early enough each morning that there are very few people out and about. So i always stop here and look for tadpoles and pollywogs swimming in the shallows. It's here that the sounds of the water trickling and the birds singing and the crickets chirping and the heat bugs droning makes me forget all the stuff i think about constantly, and i can quieten my mind and get into the walk.
Anybody know what these berries are?
Old Rose of Sharon near the path
Purple Loosestrife...an invasive species, but beautiful none the less! And the bees just love it.
