Nature Walk

Many thanks to our wonderful host, Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ for Outdoor Wednesday!
Please join me for a nature walk. It is the most glorious day here in the north Houston area. We live across the street from a lake (not very large, maybe 12 acres) with a path which goes all the way around. It takes me about 20 minutes to walk it. Today in honor of Outdoor Wednesday, I brought the camera.

You can see why I chose to name my blog, Pine Cone Retreat!

I was so happy to see these pretty white ducks. Glad that my camera and I didn't scare them off!!

Thank you so much for joining me on my walk and for visiting my blog on my first Outdoor Wednesday.


  1. Happy Outdoor Wednesday, it's always lots of fun! What great photos! I love pinecones and the little white ducks are so cute. How nice it must be to have a lake by your house. It must be a great place to unwind.
