For today's #wednesdaywalk challenge - a meander down my driveway

in wednesdaywalk •  10 months ago

I'm finding all kinds of cool contests/challenges today! This one is brand new from @tattoodjay and is called the Wednesday walk challenge. Check out his guidelines on his post (I'd share them here, but then you'd miss out on his awesome challenge results in the same post).

I decided to start off by taking a simple walk down our driveway. Okay, actually there's nothing simple about our driveway - it's so long, windy, and steep that we've had delivery people refuse to deliver!

The weather has definitely taken a turn since this morning's post. pout

However, these future flowers are still going strong, so at least that!

These soon-to-be daffodils are coming along nicely too. Good thing
our landlady has a green thumb!

More signs of spring things growing (because I'm pretending
this isn't called a Winter Berry... LOL!

Speaking of future growing things, somewhere in this area, a
Jack-in-the-pulpit should be popping up soon-ish.

And when it does, there should be bunches of
Lady Slippers in this area.

However, this temporary creek/snow melt will be
long gone by then.

Hey look! There's still a little blue sky around!

However, a moment later (and in a sad bookend to the aforementioned
post from this morning), the blue sky is gone and Mr Goldfinch isn't
looking quite so sunny anymore.

The sky over the house - yep, time to go back inside.

This is a great idea, @tattoodjay! I'm definitely going to do this again next week, and in the weeks to come!

nice pictures! and what a long and lovely driveway :)

Finally signs of spring!! Hooray :)

I haven't seen the #wednesdaywalk before, but @lyndsaybowes started some time ago #walkwithme; check it out because I think it's one that would be a good fit for you and it can be done any day of the week :)

And by the way, "See Lynn grin" is a HUGE hit in our house now! Whenever either of us gets the least bit snippy, the other says, "see Lynn grin" and we can't help but burst out laughing! Brian says that kid's face will forever be in his head haha Seriously, thank you for it because there are times when laughing is difficult here, and that giphy you made is wonderful. It is something neither of us will ever forget! <3 <3

Yep, but don't even ask about the snow showers we've had today... 😒

The #wednesdaywalk is brand new. I'd seen a few people post results for the #walkwithme tag, and I kept meaning to do it... looks like I have a lot of walking in my future! 😊

And I'm so glad you liked "see Lynn grin!" It makes me happy that I can do a small thing to help you both through this brain-hurtingly difficult time. Much ❤️❤️ to you both.

I love the walking posts; they're relatively easy to write, but I love 'seeing' where others are. I'm a bit of a stalker at heart :)

The giphy is now turned into my wallpaper, but it's 16 little photos, Brady Bunch style, all grinning. KILLS ME!!!

brain-hurtingly difficult time

is right! I hate to tell you this, but check out my most recent post. Last night was simply awful, but it is all "good" now. I'm especially glad to have "See Lynn grin" at our fingertips today :)

awww another of my favorites!! Imagine the slingshot in my "hands" sending that heart right back your way :)

That is such a beautiful place to take a walk! I can smell fresh air just by looking at your photos. :)

·

Aww, that's an awesome compliment, @cookntell! Thanks so much! 😊

Congratz, your post has been resteemed and, who knows, will maybe appear in the next edition of the #dailyspotlights (Click on my face if you want to know more about me...)
Please check the new rules of the Daily Spotlights!

·

You rock, @pixresteemer! Thanks! 💜 📷

That is a long drive but I think your delivery people are lazy. You should see my road! And I still get deliveries!

·

To be fair, where the driveway dips down in the second picture becomes wicked icy in the winter, and the drop off to the right is a bit scary. However, our reliable and awesome oil delivery guy agrees with you! LOL!

·

@mhm-philippines, I was going to point out that I'm not the one running the contest, but I see you've figured it out, and @tattoodjay has your challenge result. Nicely done, by the way!

·
·

I saw it on your post first. My mistake, thank you for your comments.

·
·
·

You're welcome, and no worries! 😊

So glad you decided to do the challenge today and this is exactly what my idea was just get out for a walk and get some shots, and we can all enjoy the views with you

tip!

·

Thanks for the tip, and thanks for the push get walking (even just down my driveway). And I'm enjoying the views others are sharing too!

·
·

I am so happy with how this started out and hope it will grow :)

·
·
·

Ditto! 😊

You are very blessed to live surrounded by such beauty!!!!

·

Totally blessed and spoiled to be here! I keep warning our landlady that if they ever want to kick us out, be prepared for a fight! LOL!

·
·

hahahahaha!!! And I have no doubt you would give a GOOD one ;) you and me both! lol)

·
·
·

You know it! LOL!

Oh those long strolls can really help cleanse the soul, clear the mind and definitely bring you back to nature!

·

Completely agree, @goldendawne! Just standing out by the edge of the lawn, looking towards the incredible expanse of woods, helps keep me grounded. 😊

Cool walk through your place! Thanks!

·

You're welcome, @mhm-philippines and thanks in return!

Your driveway is my dream... partly because I want to live surrounded by trees (although I want to be in the CO mountains) and also because I want an excuse not to go places! ;) Your surroundings seem to peaceful.

·

Yep, this is almost the perfect place (and I say almost because there's no washer/dryer and no way to install one). Once you're up the driveway, you feel like the rest of the world is a million miles away. However, civilization (aka, liquor store, grocery, and laundromat) is a mere 15 minute drive. Fingers crossed there's something comparable in CO for your dream home. 😊

I love the picure with the blue sky peeking out!

·

Thanks, @tripswithtam! I loved it too, for the two seconds it lasted... LOL!
