I’m joining in this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge from Amanda’s blog.
I try to have a walk every day to get in my exercise as sitting all day in front of the computer doesn’t do anything for the waistline or shoulders. I take my phone on my walks, as you never know what you’ll find. As such, I’ve had a whole heap of photos taken recently. Two of the most important things in life are your health and mental health. A walk is just what the doctor orders.
I love walking in spring. The colour palette is so beautiful not to mention all the variety of flower shapes that can be seen. There’s a sweetness that lingers in the air and sometimes when the direction of the wind changes, you can smell nothing but.
I am a colour person. Some people like to dress in black often or muted earthly colours. I’m quite the opposite drawing my energy from bright colours. Something revitalising about it.

I take a lot of walks and often take pictures along the way. I really appreciate your shots of the weeds growing next to the wall. I’m going to be on the lookout for my own weed wall. 🙂
Thank you. I think I would have missed it if it wasn’t pink. Happy walks!
Yesterday I put your idea into action Alison—sort of. I took a picture of flowers blooming next to a driveway. Normally, I wouldn’t have put much of the cement in the frame. This time, 2/3 of the shot was the gritty grey pavement. Thanks again.
I love walking past jasmine ..the smell is so wonderful
So do I. They are almost gone now though
Lovely selection of photos
Thank you Sheree
Great selection of plants that are so familiar to me. Well done for taking us on the walk. The grapes look incredible. Did you grow them?
Thank you Alison. No, not my grapes. There’s a house nearby that has them growing as the roof over a driveway.
I do the same thing — walk in my neighborhood, phone in hand! But it’s a great way for us to get exercise and take a closer look at nature. Here’s a the last of fall — Happy Thanksgiving!
Exactly, all we need to do is step outside. Happy Thanksgiving to you over there.
I like your photos so much. I fell as if I could breathe the spring air in your area… ☺️
Thank you for your kind words Chloe
Beautiful 😍 I love to go on walks with the specific goal of taking pictures – I find that I am much more aware of all the beautiful thigns that surround me, things that I probably wouldn’t have noticed otherwise!
Oh when you have a goal of taking pictures, I feel like we are 100x more attentive and looking around more than normal. Great way to appreciate beauty in everyday life.
