One of my favourite views

The trunks and leaves ?of four large maple trees very close to one another next to a fence.

This is me in my hammock.

This is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Some things I just noticed today

I love how walking at even slightly different times of day or at a slightly different pace or a slightly different route leads me to notice new things in familiar places.

I love when rocks are sticking out of the ground like this, it reminds me of the site where I used to go to Guide camp.

I also love Khalee’s expression in this photo, kind of giving me side eye.

A large rock sticks out of the ground, surrounded by greenery. A light haired dog stands nearby.

I’m sure I just have seen this type of tree before and perhaps I will recognize it again later in the season. I suspect that I am usually too busy in the spring to notice it flower, or maybe it has just reached eye level this year. Either way, I’m happy to have noticed it.

Green leaves, pink buds, and a white flower on a tree.

Even though I have always been fairly observant, I sometimes am so focused on completing a task before I get distracted that I don’t notice everything I would have liked to see.

I’m tweaking that tendency these days and it has been worth the effort.
