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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

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

Day 6

No morning walk day number 6

Since Ken didn't have to wait for me to get home from walking
we went to the Shop and Save early and were home by 8:30.

This morning I did a little walking around the yard and took
a few pictures. 

Cone flowers along a gravel path.
The two pictures on the bottom are plants that just popped up
in the gravel.

I've said before that there are a lot more Queen Anne's Lace around this year.
We usually keep this area weed wacked but I thought the
Queen Anne's Lace looked too nice to cut down.

Every time I look at this section of wall a certain rock always
stands out.
To me it looks like the head of a shark.

This one I see a lamb laying down with its head on his front legs.

Did you see the shark and lamb too?

The Wisteria is growing and is nice and full.

This was it 2 years ago.

I finished knitting the second scarf of the three I'm knitting
for the librarians in town yesterday and today I put the fringe on it.

If you'd like to see the scarf check it out HERE.

Thanks for popping in for a visit.
A happy day to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

...Karen, I sure hope that you heal soon.

I saw a lady take a tumble on the weekend that required paramedics. I attended until they could show up.

Granny Marigold said...

Yes, I can clearly see the shark and the lamb. I'd be tempted to use a felt marker and draw eyes.
I hope the fact that you were able to walk around outside means your ankle is getting much better.

I love cone flowers. For some reason ours did not come up this year... first time in over twenty years we haven't had them blooming. I did see the shark and the lamb! How nice of you to make scarves for your librarians. I'm sure they will be thrilled to receive such a beautiful gift. Enjoy the rest of your week... I hope you are healed enough to start walking again soon.

Mari said...

I see the shark and the lamb too. Like you, I often see things in the clouds, nature...
I love cone flowers. Ours are doing well too.
It's so nice of you to make those scarves, the librarians will like them.
Glad you were able to get out for a little walk around the yard today.

Gosh, cone Flowers have a strong will to grow! And I think the Queen Anne's Lace is lovely. Don't see the stork or sheep yt, but I'm working on it.

Debby said...

Yep I saw both of them! Fun. I too enjoy finding faces or objects in rocks, clouds - My husband and I play “celebrity look alike” when we go out. (Kinda similar) When you’re people watching you’d be surprised how many people resemble a character or famous person. I don’t believe we’ve ever found a celebrity look alike near a pile of rocks though.

What a fun little walk-about with you. I so enjoyed seeing the wonderful rock features and beautiful cone flowers. And yes, I did see the shark and sleeping lamb! I hope we can do this again someday!

Hootin Anni said...

I see a lamb, but instead of a shark head, I see an alligator with an eye open.
Love the cone flowers.

Ann said...

I love flowers that grow on their own.
I don't know if I would have spotted the shark and lamb if you hadn't pointed it out but I can see them now.

Victor S E Moubarak said...

I see a lot of stones ... and pretty flowers.

God bless.

Sandi said...

I see the lamb and I think I see the shark, not sure.

In the first photo it looks like there is a critter in the hole!

Love the flowers

Your flowers are looking so pretty. I enjoy the hardiness of coneflowers and then watching the finches feed on the seed heads. I definitely see the shark head and think I see the lamb. That was fun :)
I hope you are on your way to being fully healed.

Jeanette said...

I do see the shark and the lamb! Love the beautiful flowers! Hope your back to your usual walk soon!

ellen b. said...

I do see the shark and the lamb. That wisteria is going to be gorgeous! Our cone flowers are popping up in new places this year, too. Have a wonderful day!

eileeninmd said...

I like your Happy Trails sign. The coneflowers look beautiful.
I see the lamb. I hope you are recovering well. Take care, enjoy your day!

Your flowers are lovely. Including the Queen Ann's Lace.

Sadly, now that my husband is 89, legally blind, and not steady on his feet, he has had to let his front perennial garden go....

We used to have groups of flowers, but with neglect, queen ann's lace has taken over. Our cone flowers are not doing well, nor are other flowers and some have disappeared. -sigh-

Remember to not let it over step where you want it to be.

Gentle hugs

Hi Karen. I love all the flowers you have near your house. The scarf you have knitted for the librarian in your town is beautiful! How kind of you to share your talents by making things for others. I hope that your ankle is feeling much better as the days go by. :-)

Ruth Hiebert said...

Beautiful pictures. I love the coneflowers and especially the volunteers.Yes, I can see the animals in the rocks.
