Walking and Apple Blossoms in November

I am determined to get back walking after two months of sitting and then hobbling. 

Today I pulled on the elastic knee hose and walked down to the pond with the pups. There is pain and stiffness, but I had worse with heel spurs back when I was in my 50's. 

I must walk!

And just look what I discovered: 

Apple blossoms!

And pear blossoms!

Lovely curly kale!

As beautiful as a bouquet!

Lettuce (notice that I got into that last night for dinner)!

Encore azaleas!

Pyracantha for the birds!

Ants occupying a wooden stier head!

And geraniums that are ready to bloom again!

All this on the 29th of November in southwest Louisiana!

Beautiful. I found pussywillow buds open today. On the other hand, I suppose there is no good news in the ice in the midwest.

No way! It doesn't seem right somehow.... (there speaks the voice of envy) :D

We actually have kale still growing, after weeks of hard frosts and a snowfall. And my Italian parsley has somehow survived thus far. It's really amazing what plants can take and keep on growing.

I've hardly been exercising either. Would love to walk down to the pond with you!

It is so funny to see things blooming this time of year for me. We are growing icicles as I type. lol I an so glad you are walking- and know it will get easier with each outing. Hope you have a great week. xo Diana
