Floral Friday: While Walking

But the beauty is in the walking — we are betrayed by destinations.
Gwyn Thomas

I love spring.  I get a thrill watching nature awaken.  However, spring has been slow to come this year.  The trees are not quite ready to say goodbye to their deep, winter nap.  Thankfully, the grass is green, and here and there a brave daffodil or tulip lifts its head.  I was going to take a picture of the daffodils in the front yard.  Last week, they looked so beautiful.  Today, they look like they want to run away and hide.  I fear that May might turn out to be the rainy month April was not, and I will have to walk on the treadmill and not in the park.  Although, that might be alright.  The other day I was out walking and nearly stepped on a dead squirrel.  Shudder.

While spring is still struggling to make itself known, there is no reason your feet can’t go flower crazy.
