Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Planted flowers

A chilly start this morning when I walked with a temperature of 47 degrees.
The sun came out though so it was really nice walking weather.

Another walk into town.
Went around both cemeteries and down to see the bulls.

The geese family were down at the town pond.
Babies are getting big!
Saw Lisa running and she stopped to tell me that the other
day when I was walking her husband was driving by and saw a
big coyote come out of the woods and watch me but then it turned
and went in the other direction.
Her husband watched to make sure it didn't follow me.
 Told her to thank him for looking out for me.

Through the trees you can barely see what I thought looked
like a red barn.
But a closer look showed it was some dead trees.
After a night of rain it was so nice to walk in such nice clear, crisp air.

Waited till afternoon to give the grass time to dry out before we
went to the old house for its weekly grass mowing.
 We got two of the front gardens weeded too.

When we got back home from doing that we sat on the porch
for quite a while just enjoying listening to the birds and talking
till it was time for supper.

Hope your day was a happy one.
happyone 🥰

Vee - I didn't want to have flower gardens that I had to weed but do still like a bit of color around.  That is why I went for the plants in some containers.
Here is what we planted yesterday.

 HennyPeny - Your husband is the third person I know of who doesn't like pizza!

Rose - Yes, I did notice the green Mustang at the gas station.  It as been sitting there
for sale for quite a while.  Not crazy about the color!!

The second picture with the curved road and green ,green trees is my favourite today. I love winding roads.

The flowers look beautiful in their containers! That was kind of freaky about the coyote. I suppose Lisa has to be wary, too. Very cool here tonight. The furnace even came on and I had to go upstairs to shut windows. Crazy weather...

It doesn't take long for little baby geese to get big.

It's nice to have flowers in containers that can be replanted each year! Your walk is nice and cool! It was 82 when I finished mine yesterday morning! I know we both have pepper spray...hope we don't have to use it but it's good to have! Hugs, Diane

I love the containers...not sure I have a favorite. All look good to my eyes. And I do love the view looking down the road...where it almost looked a like a barn.

Our starting temperatures were just about the same today. Goslings are growing fast. This year is the first time I’ve really paid attention to them since first spotting them. Your second picture today is just great ... should be on a calendar called Back Roads of Maryland. :-)

Not liking pizza is like hearing about a kid who doesn't like candy.

Your flowers and containers look pretty. we have a small garden, thankfully that hubby does not mind weeding. I am glad the coyote went the other way, it is nice knowing people are looking after you. Wishing you a happy day!

One time, when I was walking a dog here that was injured and limping, I was followed behind the Junipers by a coyote, who kept calling his pack to come help him take down, if not me, at least the dog. I had come upon the pack and the rest of them took off, not this one. My husband came outside because of the loud commotion. With all the coyotes we have here, that was the only time one challenged me.

I understand that the coyotes in East and South are larger because some of them crossbred with red wolves. I think you are brave walking along, with bears and large coyotes around.

As always, I love your pictures.

Are coyotes troublesome? I have only ever seen Wild E. Coyote...so... :-) It would scare me to see one watching me, but I would assume they'd go more for wildlife. Do they ever mess with people?

So happy Lisa's husband looked out for you. Your flowers and their containers are so pretty!
