Lent Day 17: The sun is finally shining today!

I got outside to take pictures today.  I went to my normal spot, Turkey Creek.  First, thing in the morning, I ran 6 miles on the treadmill, and then walked another 40 minutes to get in my 15,000 steps.  All told, I walked an additional 3 miles at Turkey Creek.  The first picture is a picture of the reflection of the sun in the creek.

The path is raised above the swamp.  They are currently refinishing and redoing all the wood on the pathway, here is a section of the path that’s brand new.

The trees around here are starting to bloom.  Despite the below normal winter temperatures yesterday, there are little white blossoms on trees throughout the forest.

New leaves are budding on some of the twigs.  No wonder my allergies are pretty bad these last few weeks.

Even though this tree is dead, there is always still life :).  Fungus always grows everywhere with the moisture in the air.

Moss growing on a fallen tree.  Even on dead things life grows.

More reflections on the water.  I used both ATV and MV formats on my camera.

Another dead tree sitting in mud, I seem to think that dead things in the forest are beautiful.

Water lilies and other buds are forming near the water.  I keep coming back to the creek to see if they have opened up yet.  Once the flowers start budding this will be an absolutely beautiful and fragrant area to walk in.
