Please come along with me on my 'yellow hike' this morning.... I was reading blogs and listening for a great relaxation CD that I found at Michael's for $1.00! At first, I thought, "Sure! We'll see...." I must say that are GREAT!! They are at the front dollar bins. I have 'Peaceful Moments' and 'Serenity'.....WELL WORTH YOUR DOLLARS!!!!
Anyway, I was cruising along in Bloglines and Sand Creek Almanac hit the nail on the head for me!! After reading it...I dropped everything, and clipped the leash on Nugget and drove just a little ways to Mission Trails Park. Best thing I could have done today! What else would I have done for the next hour and half- don't get me wrong...I love reading your blogs, but sometimes I can get caught up in it all and end up not getting anything done. So, for a blissful hour of hiking, silence- other than Nature! Yellow took over since my last visit. (all clickable for a rush of yellow!)
The last picture of the pale white flowers with numerous pod were very interesting..the seeds were safely in the 'blown up' pod that had a tiny hold at the end. The pic of the white flower consisted of tiny white balls..almost too tiny to see! We were serenaded by the Vireos in the bushes and I caught a glimpse of a Red Shouldered Hawk. This is a gloomy day according to San Diego, but to me it was just beautiful. As a responsible dog owner, Nugget was on a leash so we enjoyed glimpses of baby rabbits along our path. This is exactly the thing I needed for this week!
Lastly, as promised, here is the final picture of the painted lighthouse!
