The busy bee

The beauty of life never ceases to amaze me.  I only want to stop and stare at it in awe.  I love the tiny little worlds right beneath my feet and in front of my nose.  I never want to lose my sense of wonder at the earth and the little pieces of it right in my own backyard.

Fish Park

This is a relatively new park in our town.  The local Lions club is currently adding an even larger boardwalk around the various little ponds and streams running through the park down to the larger salmon stream called "Dogfish Creek".  It's very quickly becoming my new favorite spot because it has so much to offer.  There are walking paths for dogs, the boardwalk, benches, beautiful scenery, and tons of bugs and birds and snakes and pollywogs for the kids to find.  I'm not a fan of the snakes, but at least they don't bite...  And believe it or not, this park is right in the middle of town.  Of course, it's not a large town, but it's still right in the middle of town...

 Reflections on the Pond

Lady bug, lady bug, fly away home. 

 strange roots...  maybe the tree is folding its hands...

 Silly girl

 oh little feet

And... the fish...
