Will You Take A Walk With Me? ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ๐ŸŒณ

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

Lansing, KS is not your typical pretty ‘Small-Town-America’. But in the Fall it turns into a canvas for Mother Nature most beautiful work. ๐Ÿ˜

It’s a sunny, crisp morning, so I took my camera with me on my daily walk.

Here are some pictures of the delightful sights I’m lucky enough to see every day ๐Ÿ˜Š

Straight out the door stands this beauty

These pictures speak for themselves

There’s a little frost on the ground

As the sun went higher, more and more colors came to life

The little creek was really flowing after the rains two weeks ago. Now…not so much

Sunshine and a little green fairy ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

This one made me chuckle ๐Ÿ˜„

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll ๐Ÿ

Do you have a lot of Fall colors in your neck of the woods? Let me know…I’d love to hear/see what’s outside your door! ๐Ÿ’•

September ~ Morning ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ‚

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Happy 1st day of September! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The ~ber months are finally here ๐Ÿ˜ƒ and September is my favorite one. ๐Ÿ’œ The summer heat with it’s humidity is finally behind us, some leaves have already changed color ๐Ÿ˜Š, and the days of comfort food and warm (aka crocheted ๐Ÿ˜‰) are close. 

While walking the dogs this morning we saw some fallen red leaves and acorns  ๐Ÿ™‚

I found this sweet poem that describes the autumn feeling perfectly ๐Ÿ˜Š

September
Breathe in
the sweet crisp breeze

that laces the winds

and shakes the seasons

into sunkissed leaves 

that sweep the city 

like confetti celebrating the

arrival of the wedding of winter

before daylight exhales

and succumbs to bathe

under the beauty of moonlight.

Hush.

It really was a perfect day ๐Ÿ˜ The morning was cool, the sun was out hubby was able to take the day off. 

So we visited a nearby lake. Until now I had only heard about it, saw the signs along the highway. And honestly, now that we finally made it there, I can’t believe we’ve been living here for almost 10 years and never went. It’s twenty (20!) minutes from our house! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

But see for yourself…

The entrance to the park โฌ†๏ธ It’s a bit of a mystery – but quite pretty ๐Ÿ™‚


The marina is right by the parking lot 

  The pirates are already here โ˜ ๏ธ

Water Lilies ๐Ÿ˜ Yes, they really were that pink ๐Ÿ’–

Here’s hubby and his white legs ๐Ÿ˜‚ admiring the scenery 


This poor tree took quite a hit during a lightning storm ๐Ÿ˜•

The First Signs of Spring ๐Ÿ’• Pictures from a morning walkย 

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Thanks for peeking in! ๐Ÿ˜€
 Monday’s thunderstorms woke up Mother Nature in these parts. ๐Ÿ˜ So, this morning I took my camera with me on the walk so I can share the beauty around us with you.

This sign greeted us at the head of the trail ๐Ÿ˜„

 A Cardinal serenaded us at the ‘Angel Falls’ ๐Ÿ˜Š
 The ‘Angel Falls’ ๐Ÿ˜‡
  Well, you know ๐Ÿ˜‹    

             
     The Daffodils are in full bloom ๐Ÿ˜
 The Lilac bush is getting ready to make us smile ๐Ÿ™‚
                          The Maple tree is way ahead of the grass ๐Ÿ˜Ž

 Dogwood….always the first one ๐Ÿ˜Š

….and right by our house I spotted this beauty! She doesn’t need an introduction ๐Ÿ˜


I hope you enjoyed the stroll through the neighborhood. ๐Ÿค—

See you soon! ๐Ÿ’•

Until then
