A Walk in the Country

I went on a walk in the country a few weeks ago.  It’s fun to open your mind and your eyes to everything around you.  There are some things we have taken for granted for years and are just now starting to appreciate, or the lack of.  Like honeybees.

I was sitting in a patch of clover…

And lightning bugs.  There are sooooooo many at night, it looks like sparks in the tall grasses.
