Daily Walk, New Sights

Yesterday, it was the most gorgeous weather for my daily walk, with my puppy. I like walking in all seasons, but I think that this time of year is my favorite, with the bright blue skies and perfect temperatures. When I walk, it is my time to just let everything else leave my mind, but what I am seeing and experiencing in nature. My puppy, Cooper and I have our routine as we walk; many times taking the same path, but always noticing different things. Yesterday, the changing seasons were evident and I paused to capture some of these in photos.

Some of the smaller trees , are already changing colors and the leaves looked spectacular against the blue sky.

This ragweed's pretty yellow flowers caught my eye as I made my way along the walking path.

These berries have recently made an appearance in some of the thickly wooded areas.

Just a hint of yellow leaves stand out in this sunny green patch.

Cooper was very patient on this walk, as I stopped to take photos, but she would much rather look for squirrels, than pretty leaves :-)

Sometimes, it is worth it to take your time and notice the new sights that suddenly appear in the midst of your daily routine. Have a lovely day today!

  1. I am SO enjoying this weather:) It is nice to pause and enjoy the day, whatever the weather! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  2. He is adorable! I am enjoying this weather too.

    1. Cooper is a girl - we liked the name and thought it would be cute for a girl too :-)

  3. I used to love the hot summers, now (in my old age) Fall is my favorite!!

  4. Cooper is so cute! My dogs would rather chase the squirrels too than stop for photos!

  5. Cooper is such a cute pup, Vicki! Love your "yellow." just perfect for e season. Thanks for visiting Walk and Click Wednesdays! ;->

  6. Such a cute pup...I love this time of year with the colors changing and the crisp air. Have a wonderful fall day!

  7. My Malibu is a squirrel chaser too - she is just too funny!

    I can't believe the leaves are changing already! Summer is for sure on its way out - and I'm ok with that.

  8. I loved taking a cyber tour with Cooper. Fall is expressing itself in the mid-west with the maples turning color and piers and boats being taken out of the water before it is too cold to do so. See you next time.

  26. Hi Vicki! I agree that we need to open our eyes and see things that we take for granted in our everyday worlds! I like taking my dog walking too, as she notices things I might have passed by. I'm looking forward to exploring more of your blog! Linda

  27. Awwww. What a sweetie. :D I have four little doggies and we enjoy them so much.

  28. Those moments of beauty are so wonderful when we let them happen, Vicki. What a wonderful way to spend your time with little Cooper! This is the perfect time of year for walking outside and enjoying nature. I love to see people walking aroundwithout their phones or iPods .. just looking at the world and marvelling at it.
