Somewhat poignantly, today we chose to walk a new path, unsure how long it was, or where it would lead.

Ironically, it turned out to be a long circuit, and we ended up right back where we started.
That turtle pull ups pic is priceless, @shatter eyes . ?

Nice path ya' found, @Sideways . I had to giggle a little at the irony and the frequency in which we seem to find those kind. At least the scenery is (can be) nice, ay? ?

Spotted my first black snake buddy this evening when going out to harvest more greenage. He was about 4 feet long...


Fresh picked collards, kale, and spinach...from the 'hood, on the hood, hardee har har....


A free wild weed edible named wood sorrel (oxalis) that grows rather abundantly in our yard and, to me, has a lemony-like twang to it....here's some more detailed info about it:

All washed, spun dry, and ready to use, with a few thinned carrot greens and a big bowl of radishes added to the mix, minus the still soaking wood sorrel...

Awwwww - goose babies!!! What a sweet and beautiful space to enjoy spending time in, @Teasel . ?

I walked few more blocks today and saw the Bee Bear I saw months ago in the thrift store window.
It is cheerful. Imagine a world where humans all carried a smile like Bee Bear? The eyes of Bee Bear is positioned to me is very sincere. Dream on Bee Bear, Bear Bee, you can bee whatever you wish to bee.
