Joanna, from London joins me
Like Virginia, each day in spring nature makes dramatic changes. The trees are now washed in green leaves as though the Jolly Green Giant lives here.
Fields of newly plowed soil have furrows as heigh as 18 inches. The soil is so rich in color it looks like pools of melted milk chocolate. Crops surely thrive.
Joanna’s wisdom, “It takes as much time to get over pushing yourself at a fast pace as it does to walk at a leisurely pace.”

Second photo with the horses and mist is just beautiful!
Just happened on the right moment at the right time. Glad you like the photos too. Linda
You’re putting in a lot of daily miles! The scenery looks beautiful
I may have one more longish walk. Average should be 15 miles. Long walks do cut into your “chill” time. Yes , it truly if beautiful here.
Think of you whenever I pass a horse. Got stung by an electrical fence trying to pet one yesterday. Linda
So happy you are doing what you really wanted to do. Love the pictures. Makes me feel like I’m there with you minus the tired feet! Have fun.
These tired feet enjoy many shoeless breaks. During one of yesterday’s break I watched the smallest of snails edge along a rock. Had I not stopped I would not have seen it. So glad you are reading the blog. Linda Jo
What a wonderful walk!!! Keep up the good work and the good blog!!
