Just a quick reminder (thanks Susan!) for June's Scavenger hunt - how are you all doing? We (Eldest and I) are almost there, missing one or two but still enjoying the hunt!
A photograph inspired by a word, words inspired by the photos - June's Scavenger photo-hunt list - enjoy!
- My own choice
Remember to think laterally, interpret as YOU fancy, be it a current photo or a favourite one from your past. We'll reconvene and post our words and photos from Thursday 30th June - have fun!
This evening, Eldest and I wandered through knee high meadow grasses and flowers. We talked about the fact that we have had some sublime weather. A little while ago we revelled in glorious hot days for a number of weeks. It amused me that, as someone who grew up in the tropics - I was not phased by sticky humid days while my colleagues and friends wilted and melted like chocolate!This evening was warm with a light breeze, it felt luxurious. The sunlight was still warm on our faces and we sat on a log and watched Miss Moss play.
She knows how to smile. Her happy face and waggy tail make us love her the more.
Then having run up and down and played until her tongue hung down almost to her knees!
She flopped down in the grass and grinned at the sky.
Happy dog? What do you think? I think so :)
Then, after we'd sat and chatted and watched a scatty dog filling her happy little self with space and light and play, we walked down into a neighbouring village that has, at it's centre, the village's original water supply where now walkers and their dogs go for a refreshing stop.
Moss threw herself in and played some more.
The last part of our walk took us alongside a wall encrusted by honeysuckle - it smelt divine.
The colours glowed in the low light and the bees were certainly making the most of the abundance.
This evening's DoG WaLK reaffirmed my firm belief that
you have to make the most of what you have -
Right Here and Right Now,
no point muttering dark things about imperfect weather,
it would be far better to get out and enjoy what is 'the now'.
It makes me feel happier,
feel a better person
and I love the feeling of being surrounded
and washed over by all that natural beauty and enjoying as it happens :)
I hope you too find pleasure with your own local 'great outdoors' xxxx
