A Walk In The Woods

It is tradition that we spend some time on New Year's Day hiking with our friends Jay, Judy and Rachel. We've missed a year here and there due to bad weather, but today dawned cold, yet dry, and off we traipsed.

How fun would it be to be able to build a seven acre lake with your very own island! (It's bigger than it looks - I should have changed camera lenses.)

A little splash of winter color.

Iris, the police no matter where she is.

A pair of herons gave us a grand "fly-by" as we ended our walk. A fabulous gift and good omen for the new year I think.

And stolen from the Yarn Harlot a few days ago...

Here's to taking good care of each other this year!

Would have loved to hike with you! We had a warm day and planned our garden calendar. Here's to a great new year!

Sounds like a perfect day, and good wisdom offered too! I wanted to invite you to read my post today, as I probably can find a thing or two just for you!

Love, Dana
