Nature Walk No. 1

Introducing my new Nature Walk series. This stems from the desire to get out more. It's really hard sometimes for me to want to get the kids ready, pack up their stuff and go somewhere, but I almost never regret it. Some days I just want to park myself in front of the computer and work, but HELLOOOO!!! I live in HAWAIʻI. It's like when you were a kid, and your parents would tell you there are starving kids in China who would LOOOVE to eat your eggplant. Well, there are freezing people in Michigan who would LOOOOVE to be outside enjoying the foliage, ocean and warm sun. On THAT note, I want to start taking nature walks with greater regularity and posting about it every week - typically Wednesday. I don't know if I'll be really strict with myself about the weekly posts, but that's what I have down for February, so SOMETIME each week I will make a special effort to spend some time outside walking and taking pictures (weather permitting).

Errr…today I made it in to the yard, but in my defense, I only decided to start nature walks on Monday so that didn't leave me much time to plan one. ANYWAY, enjoy these pics. I love looking for pattern in nature. They're so organic and irregular, but not at the same time, and the designer in me just loves the irregularity and predictability that makes nature so rich.
