I’ve been feeling a little lost the past few days.
The boys are now getting a school bus to and from school.
Now I have all these hours to fill, from 8am to 4.15pm I’m just pootling along, doing nothing in particular, feeling very alone and lost.
As much as I hated the school run, I loved it too. Those hours when it was just the boys and me were some of my favourite.
So, I decided to go for a wonder around Old Town, the house is spookily quiet when I’m on my own, and a walk in the park sounded perfect to clear my foggy head.
I adore this ‘tunnel’ formed by the trees.
A lone dandelion on the steps, felt rather apt as I was indulging in my own pity party.
Even the petals which had fallen on the ground are pretty.
Here lies Duke, he was a dog. Woof.
Despite being to the park a few times, I’d never noticed this before, observant aren’t I!
The loneliest building in the park.
How gorgeous are these. I always feel kinda bad for the flowers which have dropped, it’s as though they no longer serve a purpose.
Looks like autumn hasn’t left or maybe it’s early.
The squirrels in this park are crazy calm. Just sitting there, digging the ground, searching for nuts, or sitting on a stone, munching on nuts.
Aren't they cute in a ‘bite your arm off and give you rabies and fleas kinda way’!
This is one of the entrances / exits to the park, always seems rather misleading. It looks eerie, not a hint of the beauty and calm beyond.
The walk did indeed help calm my pity party for one, thank goodness for open spaces.
I shall be linking up with the lovely Annie over at Mammasaurus for another roundup of posts celebrating all thing garden, planty and bloomy.
