"Yesterday's Noticings"

Yesterday's Noticings

During my walk around my neighborhood yesterday, I observed many things, and I managed to get pictures of some of them. I saw a robin which had just grabbed a worm from a puddle in the street, and I would have loved to have gotten a picture of him with the worm dangling out of his mouth, but he was too fast for me. (Concerned that I would steal the worm from him, I'm sure...[Umm, yum?]...he flew away quickly.)

I also sat on the glider on my front porch for a while, and observed things there. I walked around in my back yard, looking and listening. I sat on a swing in my backyard for a long time, breathing in the fresh air and noticing. All in all, I spent several hours outside, being observant. It was so very wonderful to see all the life around me!

Here is a bit of what I saw:

I looked high

View from my front porch glider          View from my back yard swing

and low

Crocus blooming               My shadow

Purple wildflower? Weed?                         Dog tracks in the mud

Kacie hears a nearby dog barking.               A "Glory-of-the-Snow" blooming in my yard?

and all around.

One corner of my back yard               Nearby metro park land

As I looked at some things that I had noticed on my previous walk around the neighborhood, I saw how they had changed.

Flooded ditch along the entrance to the water plant            Much less water in the ditch...and much nicer skies!

I observed and I marveled, and I noticed and I wondered.

It was a lovely way to look at life.

  1. Love your slice and your pictures! I think we're all noticing things we never did before.

  2. Love the parallel between "I observed and I marveled, I noticed and I wondered." That's a great line. =)

    1. Thanks, Cathy -- I appreciate the compliment! :-)

  3. Thank you for sharing your observations and your walk!
