Down the Walking Trail

Hi Friends
Happy Weekend

I thought it would be fun to take you along on my walking trail.
There is nothing new under the sun. ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9

Going to the end of my little lane of 8 houses, and crossing the road, there is a
wonderful walking trail that goes through  a wooded area  and out to a park and picnic area.

Walking to this little bridge, we cross over into a natural
jungle of trees and hidden critters.

The trail goes through the trees with wonderful informational markers to explain the habitat.

Going to the left there is an outdoor Amphitheater along  the paths lined with cottage coach lamps

Theater seating under the trees and stars  awaits an outdoor gathering.

I do not seek, I find. ~ Pablo Picasso

This little bridge crosses over to another trail.

Leading to wide open spaces on the trail.

A trail that winds around a long walk to another bridge below.

No effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. ~ Helen Keller

Walking around in our last direction we come to the thick of the trail
and  informational markers to share what grows here.

Below is a marker for the Green Ash Tree.
Looks like someone marked initials on it.  Not nice!!
The Green Ash

Info about the Flood Plain.

This little creek was dry too when I took this photo.
Since then our month long rains has filled it up. 

Prairie Flame

A pretty shrub with bright green leaves.

Here is one of the largest trees along the path.
Not sure of the exact name and there is no marker, but I think its like a Poplar or Cottonwood.
It grows like a weed.

So pretty with the sun streaming through the trees.
Looking up, you can see how big it is.

Art is man's nature, nature is God's art. ~ P.J. Bailey

Out from the woodsy area we come to another little bridge that crosses over to
tennis courts and ball park.

I'm a slow walker, but I never walk back. ~ Abraham Lincoln

Turning at the fork in the road we come to another marker for the Post Oak Tree.

Post Oak

Another marker shares info for the Texas Pecan Tree.

The ball park is a place of fun when filled up with kids playing baseball.
You can hear the laughter, joy and shouts of a good ball game and you know summer is here.
laughter lengthens life ~ ken brown

Walking along we pass a fun little playground for families and their kids.

Another area just right for a summer picnic.

One of these days is none of these days ~ English saying

This comes to the end of the trail and our walk.

I'll take the bridge again and head back home.

Before I go~
I spotted a sweet little bunny and he stopped for a picture.

Thank you for coming along.

Have a great weekend.

Be Blessed!
