I love to go for walks outside, and lately the weather in my part of the world has been all kinds of amazing.
So, I’ve taken my winter exercise routine of marching in front of the TV (why is this not an Olympic sport?) to the road.
And the scenery has been awesome, because spring is breathing new life–and color–into everything…
Tulip tree in Historic Fredericksburg
Rooster at children’s farm in Maymont
Koi in the Japanese garden
A trail of Goldfish (in the wild)
See? Surprises at every turn.
Because spring is bursting with new life…it’s dangling from the branches by silvery threads…
Flying on the breeze, inchworms made their way to my head, shoulders, and knees.
Eventually, I perfected the walk and dodge, a.k.a. the Inchworm Limbo.
Surprise! This inchworm hitched a ride home with one of my kids.
I quickly took him back outside (note: no inchworms were harmed in the making of this post).
What spring surprises have you encountered? Do you have inchworms dangling from your trees? What is your favorite thing to do outdoors?
Here’s to happy adventures this week!
