Taking a Break ~

yesterday evening I decided to take a much needed break and go for a walk ~
I brought my camera along in case anything interesting was snap-worthy...
you decide ~
(but be warned, there are lots of snaps, and a few surprises too!)

Your walk took me back in time to when we lived on a place like that and I spent every day I could out walking, such beauty, thank you so much for taking us with you.

You live in such beautiful country there! (save for the snake LOL!) Yippers! Not used to seeing them so close up! Thank-you for sharing such gorgeous photos! Your peacock is wonderful! Such magnificent beauty... I enjoyed your "break" too! Thank-you for your uplifting post! Much needed and appreciated in this chaotic world!
Blessings to you!

Afternoon Lori, really enjoyed your picture post today, such beautiful Spring time photos....thanks for sharing, loved them, Francine.

Saundra said...

It was fun to take a stroll with you and enjoy the view.

Darn,you got to see the first black snake of spring before me. I've been looking but haven't seen one here yet. I'm not afraid of snakes either and enjoy watching them move.

Once I was surprised to see a rabbit attacking a snake which must have gotten a little too close to it's babies. Amazing the natural mother instinct that animals have.

Your pictures are lovely! We have had snow for several days now - no spring things yet!

Laurie Mcknight said...

I enjoyed this break so much, please take us with you on every walk!

Linda said...

beautiful pictures....I spotted that snake in the first photo, he scared me!!!!! You know that dove on the Proffett head stone would make a neat hooked/punched piece.

How blessed you are to live in such a wonderful and beautiful place, surrounded by many things that I love: deer, wisteria, redbuds, beautiful land, a peacock!
