44 degrees this morning and cloudy when I walked. Felt like rain in the air but it never did and the sun ended up coming out once I was back home.
Walked a couple of blocks in town over to the post office to drop off a Netflix in the mail slot. Then continued on my walk around the Farm Loop. Stopped for a chat with Farmer Bill. His bees are doing nicely and he will be selling the honey from them. I look forward to when I can buy some.
I was going to say it was a quiet walk but it was really wasn't if you stopped to listen to the sounds. I could hear lots of birds chirping and singing, some geese honked flying over head and a dog barked in the distance. The rooster was telling everyone to get out of bed, some cows mooed and the sound of a farmer on his tractor at work in the field. Nice country sounds to listen to on my walk.
I took a detour down this lane here. There are a couple of houses along here but the lane dead ends into a driveway.
I also took Spear Road and walked up past that old tree for a bit before turning around and getting back on the farm loop. I saw lots of these weeds along the road which I thought were trillium but when I looked it up on line when I got home it didn't quite look like that. They only had three petals on the flower. Maybe this is just a different variety?
Since I took couple of detours I got my miles in without having to walk around the cemeteries.
I walked 6.7 miles.

Back outside in the yard again after breakfast - time to mow the lawn again, but as you know I like to mow the lawn.
We took some more shrubs out of the front yard because they just looked too crowded and I'm going to plant something colorful between the shrubs that are still there.
Last year the cone flowers grew very tall and leaned over the walkway so we put these couple of low fence sections there to keep the flowers off the sidewalk. The shrubs we took out were on the other side of the walkway.
Ken planted 10 tomato plants in one of the planter boxes and I planted Dill, Parsley, and Basil in the other one. I'm still going to plant another herb but will buy it already started and not by seeds. Didn't take a picture because all the plants are so tiny and they wouldn't show up very good. I'll take one when they grow a little bit.
Our neighbors Ron and Connie were outside working in their yard too, so I went over to say and hi and have a little chat. They also go to our church.
After the yard work was done we both sat in the swing for a while enjoying the beautiful day. Just look at this sky. It was 70 degrees too which made it perfect.
That's been my day so far.
Hope yours is sunny and bright.
happyone : )

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you,
if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand,
rejoice, for you soul is alive.
