My husband and I have three go to walks that we choose from with our three canine family members. Willie, Waylon and Chewie live for these daily jaunts in and around our neighborhood and their excitement builds even before we actually say the word “walk” to them. They have this uncanny ability to read us and instinctively know when we are getting ready to walk them. The short walk is literally a short walk around our neighborhood, one big circle. The intermediate walk will take us about a mile and it includes the adjoining neighborhood. The long walk takes us onto the West Ashley Greenway and we walk maybe a little over two miles. When I read about “The Road Taken” challenge these walks easily came to mind. I grabbed the camera to see what I would see and I can tell you for sure that Spring has sprung in Charleston. I hope you enjoy just a few of the blossoms I shot along the way. What a delight to see these simple signs of Spring on the road taken!
“who knows if the moon’s
a balloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky–filled with pretty people?
( and if you and I should
get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their balloon,
we’d go up higher with all the pretty people
than houses and steeples and clouds:
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody’s ever visited,where
in love and flowers pick themselves”
― E.E. Cummings, Collected Poems
