Hello, Again

Hello, again. It's been months since I've paid any attention to my blog and thought I'd make a bit of an effort to get back to it. I find it too easy to be a homebody these days, so took advantage of a recent sunny day and headed out to a local conservation area. I was rewarded by the sight of oak leaves. When I was growing up (not where I live now), I remember seeing oak trees all the time. So pretty.

Along with the wooded areas, my walk took me by areas of milkweed. I did spot an orange butterfly, which I assumed was a monarch, staying rather late in the season. Carrying on, I paused on a viewing platform by the marsh.

A stroll by the lake was also part of the trek. The woods, marshlands and a huge lake, all in an hour or so.

If you'd been with me, perhaps we would have lingered here, sitting and talking about whatever came to mind.

The moon was the incentive to head out for a stroll this evening. Various old songs have been playing in my head. Just now I thought of the lines:
The moon belongs to everyone
The best things in life are free

I hope you're enjoying the moon too.


  1. Hello again, Karen! It's lovely to hear from you.
    Such wonderful photos, beautiful colours and the huge lake looks a sea. Your new header is very interesting too.
    It's cloudy here, so we will not see the moon.
    Wishing you a happy autumn. Big hugs!

  2. Glad to see you again and what a nice sunny autumn walk.
    We miss the sun since last september day, only rain and grey and frosts now.
    But the moon is great and my cat likes it too...
    Have a nice week
