Local Walk.





































Yesterday R was going down the main highway to deliver a load of firewood, so I went part way and got dropped off to do a long walk home. Would you care to come and see what I saw? Be prepared, it took over a hour and there are some hills. on the roads to get home. ( I prefer flat really )We start by the sign and head of to that gap in the trees.
I was glad of my jacket in the dark shady parts but just sweltered later on coming home along the roads in the sun.

As I walked I saw evidence of the heavy rain ( you know the one ) a month ago and the pond had been drained back to the original stream - probably cause it flooded too and they had to let it go - ( here didn't get the landslide to go with it , luckily ).There were lovely contrasts of light and shade - some parts quite dark and ominous. Some healthy stands of young Kauri and Rimu trees.( NZ natives ) ( just like the ones we lost in the flood! )

Near the other end of the track neighbours who border the stream had made it picturesque, by deepening it and had ducks, geese and animals.

You live in a Really a beautiful place. What a lovely green walk. My neighborhood is shades of gray & whie & muddy brown right now. The green is a welcome relief!

Such beautiful scenery - thanks for taking us on your walk with you.
BTW, I've made a cathedral windows quilt as well - just like you, I used denim, and batting squares. I think it is well worth the effort.
