Today I’m showing you some of the Woodward Park photos I took recently.
I just love to go there because there’s so many things I want to photograph. The park, the pond, the gardens, and the grounds are just full of possibilities.
When I woke up Charlie was sleeping up against my stomach. He never does that.
I was grateful for his warmth. And surprised as well. He is not one to sleep up against me. Usually he stays at the foot of the bed.
Ivy is perched on the sewing machine table on the left side of me.
And Charlie is laying on his dog bed on the right side of me. They are usually always close to wherever I am in the apartment.
It’s been raining. I can see the rain dripping off the eaves. But there’s been a lull in the continuous rainfall we’ve experienced here of late.
The yellow rose that was so pretty the last couple of days has now given way to the rain. The yellow petals have been pulled apart by and are now falling to the ground.
I just love that yellow rose bush from Southwood Nursery that I planted in a container. It has thrived over the last couple of years in that corner of the patio.
Onward To More Photos Of Woodward Park:
There are such beautiful carvings of nature’s wildlife on display at Woodward Park.
They have one enclosed section of vegetables at Woodward Park.
The trellis did a good job of holding up the red pepper plants to keep them off the ground.
My pepper plant in a container at home is still producing peppers. I gave four of them to my new neighbor last Saturday because I can’t eat them.
Why on earth did I plant them, I asked myself? Well, they’re beautiful to look at in their quite vivid colors. And I can share them with family and neighbors.
I am always intrigued by the textures and many colors in the gardens at Woodward Lake. The simplest of things, but I find them so very beautiful.
The Wildlife At Woodward Park:
Can you see the squirrel that blends so well into the background in the above photo?
The wildlife at Woodward Park have many berries to eat during the winter months due to all the trees and bushes and such.
Everywhere I looked there was something to see.
The ponds and various waterfalls there are just breathtaking. And the koi swim right up to greet you when you walk near the ponds.
I admired the juxtaposition of the fall leaves against this black steel gate. I always look for interesting angles to photograph at Woodward Park or elsewhere.
Tomorrow I’ll show you photos of Swan Lake. I love that place as much as Woodward Park. And there are beautiful old homes surrounding the lake.
Whenever I go to Woodward Park, I typically go ahead and drive the short distance to Swan Lake too.
And of course I have a few token photos of the pet babies.
Ivy found a paper towel somewhere and it is now shredded on the floor. If she’s going to tear it up, I wish I could teach her to clean it up afterward.
I guess that wouldn’t be as much fun for her though, would it?
And here is Charlie on the ottoman and doggie steps.
What is the weather like where you are? Have the leaves all fallen yet? They are really just starting to fall here.
I’m staying in today just as I did yesterday. I will enjoy the day with the pet babies in the warmth and dryness of my little apartment.
