|An easy walk on paved paths|
|With conveniently placed benches for resting on.|
|This is a close up of the tree in the bench picture above.|
I love all it's branches, perfect for climbing on.
|It looked winter dead but I spotted some new green growth.|
|Then there was this stand of dead pine trees.|
|Pretty sad looking. I wondered why they hadn't been cut down.|
|Then I walked closer and saw beautiful new green growth,|
as well as the pretty little pink baby pine cones. I had never
seen them before - it was a pleasant surprise.
|Lots of new growth that had just been waiting for a few sunny days to show itself|
|A life lesson maybe? What appears from a distance to be|
used up and dead, upon closer notice is just bursting with life.
|And here's one of the main reasons the grandkids like coming to|
Grammy and Papa's house - the great playground just across the street.
