Will You Take A Walk With Me? πŸ˜ŽπŸπŸŒ³

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

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. 😍

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 😊

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 πŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

This one made me chuckle πŸ˜„

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll 🍁

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! πŸ’•

September ~ Morning πŸπŸŒžπŸ‚

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

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

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

I found this sweet poem that describes the autumn feeling perfectly 😊

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 😍 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! 😳

But see for yourself…

The entrance to the park ⬆️ It’s a bit of a mystery – but quite pretty πŸ™‚


The marina is right by the parking lot 

  The pirates are already here ☠️

Water Lilies 😍 Yes, they really were that pink πŸ’–

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


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

The First Signs of Spring πŸ’• Pictures from a morning walkΒ 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Thanks for peeking in! πŸ˜€
 Monday’s thunderstorms woke up Mother Nature in these parts. 😍 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 πŸ˜„

 A Cardinal serenaded us at the ‘Angel Falls’ 😊
 The ‘Angel Falls’ πŸ˜‡
  Well, you know πŸ˜‹    

             
     The Daffodils are in full bloom 😍
 The Lilac bush is getting ready to make us smile πŸ™‚
                          The Maple tree is way ahead of the grass 😎

 Dogwood….always the first one 😊

….and right by our house I spotted this beauty! She doesn’t need an introduction 😁


I hope you enjoyed the stroll through the neighborhood. πŸ€—

See you soon! πŸ’•

Until then
