I needed some R&R. This afternoon was gorgeous, the weather sunny and cool. We went to Bee Tree Park and I snapped photos of things that made me smile. We walked around the lake and I chuckled at the sun glistening on the surface like thousands of diamonds. "Looks to me like the fish are snapping pictures of us."
I love being outdoors. In our busy lives we seldom stop to appreciate nature's gifts. Look closely at the tree above. It was probably struck by lightning when it was a sapling. One side is completely smooth, and the otherside is covered in bark. Odd in appearance, but thriving none-the-less.
I stopped on the wooded path. Bill didn't see what I saw until I pointed out a skinny branch that was completely stripped of leaves, hanging on to a heart-shaped leaf, dangling a gift to us.
