I saw the colors


The day has seemed to be gloomy today. In spite of the fact that Jim had a surgery at the beginning of March and recovery was slow, he can walk better now. Spontaneously we decided to go for a little hike to the Little Spokane River trail, or as we call it, Snake trail.

We never made there. Why? Oh no, not because of snakes we saw last spring, even though that disturbing feeling never leaves me, but because it was me who was leading today, :))) I stopped somewhere on the road where I spotted a path deeply in woods.

It is hard to call it hiking. I mean that path we took today. It was only about 4 miles, but in the area we didn't know. Apparently, no woods, and it appeared that it was a restricted area as well, but we figured it out only on the way back making a loop, where we could see a sign "PROHIBITED. NO TRESPASSING". Oops!

It was a little bit boring as well and I didn't take many pictures as I usually do.

I don't know the name of this little fellow, but he was only alive thing around, so I tried to capture the beautiful colors of his feather.


Beautiful, but boring too, :))) He was sitting still and with his back to me, and I wanted to see him flying, yarning, singing, chasing a worm, whatever... I wanted to see LIFE...




Probably it was too boring for me or so I thought. Closer to the place where I parked the car, we saw a couple escorting their dog not on a leash, or vise versa, a dog was escorting its masters not on a leash. I was so engaged in the conversation with my hubby gesticulating and marching that didn't notice the dog cowardly went around me and bit my left hand. The dog probably didn't like my hand or it looked like a sausage. The bite was light, no traces of teeth or blood, but it definitely took my attention, :)) I could only whisper: "OH, MAMA!". A lady of the dog laughed out loud trying to make me believe IT was playing with me... I need vacation...

Oh, well! back to the hike...

It was afternoon, the spring is definitely somewhere in the air, you can feel it, or see it, :)))


Do you feel it? No? Did you click the picture to enlarge it?

There you go!

Can you see it? There, far away... there is Spring, and it is close, it is coming...


I guess, I can't complain on weather, because I know that many different parts of the world are still covered with snow... At least, it wasn't raining on the trail. It started raining when we drove back home. After rain stopped, we saw huge beautiful rainbow across the road. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to take a picture - I was driving and my camera was on the back seat.

It was nice to get out. Even though hike was not serious, we made our blood pumping, got fresh air, got to experience different emotions, talked to my Mom, and saw the colors...

Any colors in your life?

Thanks for taking us along on that walk - good to hear your husband can do this again after his surgery. But I can't find any words for that dog owner... I hope that bite wasn't too bad!

Hugs
Birgit (who is lucky that spring is starting to show up around here and bringing colours along - although a damn rabbit had almost all our crocus blossoms for supper *censored comments*)

Hi Natalia! It appears that you are suffering from a bout of Spring Fever. You may feel somewhat in limbo right now, but rest assured that boredom is a transient symptom, and not an actual disease.
How Marvelous that the little bird perched at great length on that stem, and waited there just for you, so that you to take his picture and could be encouraged by both his beautiful colors and his tranquility. It is not that often that people get the opportunity to have that kind of co-operation between both man and nature. :))

Salvo por el incidente del perro, parece una caminata interesante y sobre todo saludable.Aunque no haga un tiempo demasiado bueno, la primavera empieza a hacerse notar.

Hi Natalia! He looks like a Bluebird to me.... they are supposed to bring happiness! I am glad you got out for a hike.... we are still cold and snowy here! Spring is still a Dream.... but it will get here!

Dear Natalia, So glad that you managed together to take a little walk. I remember when you spoke of that area another time. How nice that the little bluebird caught your eye and held it. Nature has a wonderful way of combining colours and I know that you appreciate such things.

I am sorry that the dog owner did not take responsibility for her dog's behavour and that it upset you.

I hope that with every passing day you will both be stronger healthwise and all will be bright again.
regards Janine

Thank you very much for posting your nice comments! I also had a suspicious it was a bluebird. I actually never saw a bluebird so close and a little bit of purplish color confused me, but it is good to know that bluebirds bring happiness! I love nature and being outdoors. It rejuvenates my spirit. Mini hugs, Natalia
