Walking On Sunshine
The weather has just been SO gorgeous here the past week. If I were not so drugged on pain medication I would really be tearing my hair out about now to hit the road to somewhere, anywhere. Even in my fog it pulls at me terribly. I settled by taking Chigger for a short hike around the place.
Well, not exactly around the place. That would take a while. We just hiked up the ridge about halfway and took a deer trail over to where several large trees were downed by a storm. They are not too far off the main trail because Jack has been slowly harvesting some of the wood. Shame to let it just rot.
Anyway, it was something to keep me from sitting down for a while. The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is having their biannual plant sale this weekend and I really wanted to go to that but just did not feel like driving that far. Don't really have extra cash for plants anyway.
I thought it was amazing that this tree got this big all the while being that hollow! All things endure.
Why is it we get the wanderlust when we are least able to indulge it? Or, at least I do. Maybe it's a good lesson for me for when I am able-bodied again....lol!
