Whether paddling or walking our explorations in the last week or so have been very close to home in Griggs Park and the reservoir. We hardly feel deprived. As the pictures below will attest, especially in the case of my wife, the closer you look the more you see.
Some of the flowers we are now seeing will continue to bloom for most of the summer. Others will not. Part of the ever changing scene.
While we are still hearing them, many birds choose to peer at us from behind the leaf cover so my wife has directed more of her attention to more cooperative subjects.
Look even closer and you’ll see tiny insects with jewel like qualities.
Thankfully not all of our feathered friends were in hiding.
And a few other creatures too.
Sometimes it’s good to just step back and admire it all from a distance.
Thanks for stopping by.
