"Whatever Wednesday" - The Photo Walk Edition, Part 1

Happy Hump Day! - Yep, halfway through another week.  How's yours been going so far?  Hopefully great.

This week I'm sharing a few photos that I took while out with Coleen a week ago for a little photo walk/drive. 

First up one of the things I set out to try and find again to photograph.  We'd driven by it one afternoon on our way home from church and I set out to find it and get some pictures because it looked like something interesting.  Hubby was driving at the time so I really didn't get a close enough look to figure out exactly what it was.  Curious?....

It turned out to be this fun carving of a Squirrel relaxing under a mushroom.

Apparently the owners of the home had a dead tree stump in their yard and decided to have it turned into a piece of art.  Quite cute and very clever if you ask me.

Here is another view of the carving.

Now this wasn't the only Squirrel we encountered on our little journey.  We happened upon a "live" squirrel in a tree that decided to come down and take a closer look at us.
                                                             Across the street from the Squirrel Carving we spotted a house with some pretty grasses and plants around it so headed over to take a few pictures.

                                                                  The bee's were enjoying this lovely flower.

                                                                                   Coleen just loved this next plant.  I have no idea what it is but the leaves were so soft and fuzzy.  She said, "Grandma feel this plant, it's like a fuzzy blanket."  And she was right!

                                                                                            Up the street we  
discovered a fun little planter which was featured in a recent Scavenger Hunt Sunday:

This planter was in a little garden plot of an apartment complex.  It was so clever that I had to take a picture of it.    Coleen also spotted this next little planter which we thought was worthy of having it's picture taken as well.

Finally we were visited by this wonderful cat.

Two little girls came out and informed us that the cat was their Grandma's and her name was Molly.  She was very friendly and Coleen enjoyed getting to pet her.

There is more to our little journey but I'll share them another day.                 
Take care and have a great day.


  1. Love your photo walk shots! I have that
    soft-as-a-blanket plant in my rockery and it is called Lamb's Ears (or the real name is Stachys byzantina)
    Love the planters and plants you captured...and ya gotta love a brave squirrel when you have a camera handy! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  2. I love the carved stump and the tower-of-pots, both very clever! Coleen is a cutie pie! :)
    I believe the fuzzy plant is called Lamb's Ears (for obvious reasons)!!

  3. Lovely. Thank you for taking us along on your walk. :)

  4. That carved tree had to cost some $$$.
