The temperature was in the 70s Fahrenheit (30s Celsius) with a gentle cooling breeze blowing. Occasionally a gust of wind would blow through the tall trees and knock small branches to the ground, but that was in the woods and not on the trail. We stopped at the herb garden which has a small waterfall, rested on a bench and soaked in the beautiful peaceful scene.
After resting for a while we decided to check out the rest of the herb garden to see if any plants were in bloom. At this time of the year not much plants blooming. We found this prairie rose, first one blooming!
After the herb garden, we then went for a one mile walk through the woods, where we found this purple vine climbing to the very top of the trees. I have not seen this vine in bloom before in these woods. I do not know the name of this plant, but it is purple and beautiful. If anyone out there knows the name or can tell us more about it, please leave me a comment.
I walked for a solid hour and I felt good that I was able to fit that in today. How about you where did you walk today? and what did you see? Share it with us by leaving a comment!
