When Tom was away Sean and I decided to take advantage of a really gorgeous Sunday and went for a walk in the park.
Near the park entrance there was a fellow who was standing statue still with his arms outstretched. It only took a few moments to realize why when a little bird came darting out of the trees and landed in his outstretched palm. The bird would grab a snack and take off. He laughed and said to me “my arms are getting tired”. Turns out he does this a lot. A man with a lot of patience!
You have to click on the picture and look at the large size to see the bird in his hand.
The weather was lovely, so much so that towards the end of the walk I was feeling a bit warm in my light jacket. I love watching the slumbering foliage coming to life all those little buds coming up.
I can’t wait to see the spring flowers finally come out. There wasn’t much in the way of colour to photograph, but there were a few early flowers popping up.
The park still has it’s charms though, flowers or no flowers. I love the layout of the garden area. Wish I had a yard, I would love to be able to landscape it. There is just something to calming about the outdoors, especially for someone who has spent the better part of her life in an apartment.
