Our Tuesday Luncheon Nature Walk

I am linking this post up with Elisa's Nature Walk garden party on Fridays

As I was not able to take the whole week off from my job, I tried to plan shorter hours so I would be able to spend more time with Willa.  Plus, I worked it out so that she could meet me for lunch.  Before we grabbed our grub, we took a nature walk.

It was a path that I had discovered a couple of months ago, on a wintry day.  The hospital that I work the keeper of this path.  I am so impressed and proud of them.

Join Willa and me as we explored the galore, for sure!


One of the ponds......

Devil's Claw.....had to look this one up, too!

I could not leave out the dandilions!  This was the only bunch we saw.

Wild Blue Flax...
....could not remember this one..
....had to look it up later.

The mountain in the far background is my backyard view.

Pretty cattails! an upper pond

This creek was so pretty in the winter.

Three thistle sisters...

This grass was so pretty in person.....hard to show here...
