Do you have time for a Walk at Shalom Park today?

It’s easy for me to stop here and take a brisk walk when I’m out and about.

We have so much to be thankful for at this time of year. So I’m joining Thankful Thursdays!

Are you doing something special today?

Just beautiful! What a wonderful place for a stroll or walk. Enjoy!

Diane, Who would not want to walk around that gorgeous area. I bet the flowers smell so good. That is a rotten thing about winter..no fresh good smelling flowers. Store bought just don't smell as good. We are going to tractor supply for some bird seed.Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

We aren't walking outside much these days last the mercury has been bouncing back and forth, but staying under forty degrees with snow and ice on the ground. We will have white Christmas with old snow. Your photos did warm me up a bit. Merry Christmas.

No walking here except for around the house as I vlean and prepare for Christmas Eve! That's when my children and grands come for a turkey dinner and our gift exchange! Today Louis Dean has the kitchen to bake his cinnamon rolls. Tomorrow I get it to prepare all the side dishes. We will join forces on Saturday to do the turkey and dressing! Christmas is coming and fast!!!
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I enjoyed my walk with you. Instead of going out for a walk this morning we spent the time shovelling and snow blowing the snow that came overnight. Happy holidays to you and your family Diane.

Thank you for sharing such a lovely walk. Camellias are so pretty in pink. I've been so busy today and didn't take my daily walk, so this was especially nice for me! ♥

Vee said...

That was the finest walk I've had lately. The camelias are beautiful. Do they smell wonderful, too?

Michelle said...

What a gorgeous place for a walk. And, we should always take time for a stroll each day. Thanks for linking up this Thursday!

I can't believe your camellias are still in bloom. It's too cold here now and they are sleeping until spring. Wow, these photos don't need any editing at all. Love that fountain! :)
