It's been a year since Judy took us on one of her Wednesday walks but, today, I thought I'd reprise her original thought with a walk through my neighborhood. I found some wonderful surprises along the way.
The first surprise I found was a field of violets hiding in the grass, their little purple faces dancing in the breeze.
I'm rather partial to violets, as they look so delicate, but year after year they return, for just a short time, to catch the eye of someone who isn't in a hurry.
The next treasure I found on my path was the blossom covered branches of a smallpatio tree, as they waved in salute to the sun.
The path heads into a subdivision where there were many signs of the children wholive there. The child who drew this little vignette may have a future as an artist. The picture certainly made me take notice and smile.
It may not look like much to you, as it's not something you pass by every day, but it's the playground in our condo complex and a simple change in its appearance caught my eye. Atop each post is a ball, a ball of sand, as they turned out to be. Who thought to do this? I thank them for bringing a bit of delight to the eye who had the time to notice. I smiled the rest of my way home.
