WALKING WEATHER

At last it has warmed up again and it is lovely weather for walking. Sometimes I walk with a neighbour and she showed me a new route to add to my various ways to walk each morning. This one is good as there are not many hills. Come along with me and enjoy a Springtime walk around my neighbourhood.
 Our national flower, the "Wattle"

 A different type of Wattle

 A walkway between the houses and sports fields.

 Down a street which is nicely landscaped in the middle.

Through a park where a fir tree was dropping its needles, I think it might be dying.

 Back on an even keel.

 Past the school's football field.

Going back home now along another nice streetscape.
Hope you enjoyed your morning walk in Daisy Hill.

  4. Diane - Your pictures are lovely, as always.

    It is so strange to think it is springtime there when here our fall season is just beginning.

    happy springtime to you - Marsha

  5. That is a nice way to have a walk, sitting in my chair and watch left and right. Very good of you to do so each day, thanks for charing.

  7. Loved that wavy walk with the footbridge - a real meandering type of shot. And yes, the streets are spectacularly clean.
    Thanks for sharing your particular part of Brisbane Diane.

  8. Lovely walk! How wonderful to see those Wattles in bloom during Spring. The ones that grow in the bushland here flower in late Autumn to early Winter. I'm heading down there to visit with my son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren soon, so I'm pleased to hear the weather has warmed up a bit.

  10. Your walking route is very picturesque! Everything looks so well manicured and perfectly trimmed. I love the wattle! Very sad about the fir tree, but it does make the sidewalk pretty.

  12. Yes I did enjoy the walk. What I find interesting about walking and travel posts are the different things that people notice. I also find all the different types of wattle fascinating.

  17. I did love the walk ... it's getting a little cool for my taste here in Oregon as Fall approaches, so I enjoyed your early Spring ramble. (I still walk anyway, just prefer it when it's warmer.)

    That tree shedding needles must be ill -- b/c I assume Spring is the wrong time for that.
