I was struggling to come up with a title for this blog so I asked Emma. She came up with 'Adventure into Nature' - not bad eh!!!
Today Dan and I went out carpet buying.
Yes, we have eventually ventured out and bought our new hall carpet.
I have for a long time hankered after a red carpet and today we got it and I feel quite excited about it :))
Our hall has been decorated and this is about the last thing to do to finish it off.
So hopefully in a couple of weeks I'll have a hall to be proud of.
Then this afternoon I decided to go for a nice long walk - all by myself.
I was out for around 1 1/2 hours and really enjoyed it. The sky was blue, it was lovely and warm in the sun and the birds were singing their wee hearts out :))
I of course took my camera with me - you know I don't think I could go for a walk without my camera, I'd be scared I missed a prime photograph :))
Here are some pictures of what I saw on my walk.
This is the path I walked along.
The gorse bushes are out in full bloom.
When I got to the end of the walk I turned around and walked back the way I had come. Sometimes you miss things and need to go back to catch them.
I did see some unusual flowers. I've no idea what the above is but it was very unusual.
The only trouble was when I took this picture I got stung by a nettle - ouch!!!!
And this unusual leaf formation. Isn't that amazing?
This is our local cemetary and I love how the tree overhangs next to it.
I really love how these wee white flowers are carpeting the grass.
There is so much beauty out there for us to see (and take pictures of) it's a real shame to not take advantage of it.
Hope everybody has a lovely weekend.
