Morning Walk: Snow, Breathe, Smile (for the camera)

Walk to Remember

As you may know, I have been focusing on memory issues such as remembering, forgetting, mindfulness, and memory retention as a way to understand my actions lately. I’ve had a string of forgetting moments and last week was another doosey. I’ll post that one next time.

For now – I try to walk daily in new areas as a way to stay awake mentally and keep my brain from going into ‘zone mode.’

This morning, before the sun was up – I was in my yard with a rake knocking snow off bushes, trees, plants and hauling (with all my might) a huge branch that broke during the night.

After a hot cup of tea to warm me up … I patiently waited for the sun to come up so I could walk and take some photos. Now, as I write this at 4 pm the lawns are littered with gold, green and red leaves. The snow is almost all melted. The images I took this morning are all that’s left. Here’s my gift to you…Enjoy!

Love this pink flower against the backdrop of the evergreen background.

The trees have not yet dropped their leaves so the heavy wet snow can be brutal to the branches.

  1. Maggie, I always miss this time of tear. The in between Autumn/winter. The beautiful leaves, now on the ground. Your photos are beautiful!

    • Thanks! It’s strange to live in an area where I am surrounded by trees instead of sky. The light is all different than is used to be – and the ground is littered with leaves of all colors, shapes and species! Truly lovely.
