Lunch Laps Yield Friday Moment

The drizzle today didn’t seem too inviting for a hike during lunch. Instead I ventured out for a walk, wearing my festive green hoodie. There’s a flat back road near my office that is relatively traffic free, and I thought if I carried an umbrella I could get in at least twenty minutes – enough to burn 100 calories or so.
After ten minutes at a brisk pace, the dampness felt refreshing. Some brush along the way had been trimmed back and I could smell the wood from the fresh cut. Mounds of yellow grass looked like hay and I wondered how long it would take for color to grow back into the long stringy blades.

Trash was mixed in with dead leaves. Once summer comes the bottles and wrappers that  were tossed at the landscape would be hidden. Shades of blue and yellow were what I could see and except for an odd photo of a rock wall, the images seemed to look good together. 
A favorite blogging site I subscribe to does a weekly feature called ‘Friday Moment’ where users post an image without words. I’m inspired from that tradition, but added text here because of the newness of this site.
I hope you enjoyed today and have had a moment of discovery today too!

    Wow that's an intriguing piece of art. Loved your photos from your walk too. When the weather is damp and chill sometimes it's hard to be motivated to get out…But when I do I'm always glad I did. The fresh air, unexpectant treasures that pop up here and there during my time out, bring a splash of color to my day.

    Motivation for me is an obstacle. But sometimes something as simple as putting one step in front of another is all it takes to get me moving! Thanks for stopping by!
