Riverwalk

In my attempt to keep things calm
before the "big" day 
(graduation and Dad's arrival)
we're doing a lot of
walking.

We had the perfect day for roaming
around the Rum River.

Great Lobelia

Spiderwort

Anybody home?

I'm sorry but I cannot get my background for comments to change.
I've tried everything.

I agree with Julie Marie. If I lived in a place like that I'd walk every morning and afternoon with the dog. Beautiful. So calming.

Beautiful photos Jill. Sometimes all you need is a little peace and beauty (and some deep breaths) before all the excitement that is to come.

Here I was looking at your beautiful photos of your land and then I see this frog! Are you walking as stress relief? You have a beautiful home there. Does your ex stress you out? If it is not my business I understand. Love, sandie
