When I am walking in the woods, I tend to be looking down. The trails are rough and crisscrossed with tree roots, so I have to watch my footing. If I trip and break something, it would not be easy for Paramedics to reach me! Also I am always on the lookout for wildflowers etc. to photograph. But I have learned to pause once in a while to look up. I am often surprised at just how tall and impressive many of the trees are.
The other day I happened to take a closer look at this oak tree in the Park. It is obviously very old, and I thought the shape and textures of the limbs was really interesting.
We are in for a hot spell and our poor lawn is beginning to look more like straw than grass. There is a small chance of storms along with the higher temperatures, so we will keep our fingers crossed for some rain.
