My back yard yesterday afternoon
Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I felt uncharacteristically adventurous. On a whim, I grabbed my El Cheapo camera and ventured out to the woods on my property. It was a wonderful walk and I felt rejuvenated being in touch with nature.
I got scratched with thorns, bitten by bugs, and - yes - I slipped on damp leaves and fell down a slope......... but when I landed on my ass I looked around and said "Damn, it's beautiful here!"
I'm on my ass, in a pile of autumn leaves, in the peaceful, wooded wilderness of Tennessee. What could be better?
I took at least 60 photos and it's nearly impossible to choose favorites. Here are a random few.
Pine cones near the house. Strangely enough, I hadn't noticed them until I was outside walking yesterday.
My cat Scratch, who has been housebound for ten years, suddenly loves being outside. She goes out every day- - but I keep a close eye on her (after the coyote incident the other night)
If you look closely at the photo on the right, you can see my house peeking through the trees.
After living on the barren plains of West Texas for so long, it's difficult to believe that these beautiful woods are on my property!
