With blue skies making a rare appearance for a second day in a row and a forecast of rain, rain, rain for the weekend, I really wanted to get out for a walk with the girls today.
Because it's been a slow week when it comes to photos, I grabbed my camera to take along. My girls followed suit and each grabbed a little point and shoot (our old cameras we've kept around for just such instances).
What started out as a simple walked, turned into an adventure in discovering the incredible display of nature right in our own neighborhood.
When you walk slow enough to see ~ really see ~ what is surrounding you, it's all quite curious.
The colors, the shapes, the patterns, the textures.
Both the plant above and below had bright fuschia colors - hot pink - so bright it was almost blinding!
If you have some extra time this weekend, go for a slow walk. Take your camera along and see what you can find!
I dare you.
