Five Photos, Five Stories – Day 3

Early morning is my favorite time to walk. The quietness then allows me to be aware of my surroundings more so than at any other time.

As I walk, I hear birds singing, the wind rustling, lawn sprinklers, an occasional dog barking and sometimes the distant rumble of a workboat engine.

I smell roses, honeysuckle, freshly mown grass,  and perhaps bacon that a neighbor is cooking for breakfast.

I feel a soft breeze and warm sunshine on my face (on the pleasant days).

I see the usual: butterflies, rabbits, squirrels, neighbors heading off to work or walking their dogs, but, occasionally, I see something totally unexpected that brings a smile.

(On a whim, I Googled the words and learned that they’re lyrics to a song. Since I’m completely and unashamedly “lost in the 50’s and 60’s”  when it comes to music, I wasn’t familiar with it.)

I sure hope her fella is worthy of this young lady’s artwork.

The rules of Five Photos; Five Stories are to post a photo a day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo.  It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph.  Oh yes, and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge . Today, I’m tagging Latane of Living Life On Main Street. Latane and I live within about 30 minutes of each other and hope to meet in person soon!

  1. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing your morning walk. I love the street drawing, it’s awesome. Thanks for sharing the smiles. 🙂

  2. Those early morning walks clear your head and get you ready for the rest of the day – I’m so glad you do that AND get to see some “surprises” along the way like this street art. I love it……..


  3. Early morning is the best part of the day. Love the lyrics! You never know what you’ll find on an early morning walk!

  4. I am busily figuring out my own 5 and have them slated for a week in June that will be particularly busy. Love your early morning walk surprises!

  5. Precious! What a neat way to start your day – Unexpected smiles are the best. Early morning is my favorite time of the day – if only I didn’t have to rush off to work. You think they could start school later in the day!!!:>

  6. Very sweet… it really is the little things that can put a smile in our hearts and make us happy all day.

  7. I’m not familiar with this one, but you never know what you’ll see when you go out walkin’ !

  10. Such a nice bonus to your walk. I love the outdoors during the mornings too, Dianna.

  11. Amazing what little treasures await us if we just pay attention.

  12. I hope so, too! I’m glad you found her artwork and shared it with us.

  13. Oh my gosh, that chalk art on the street was just too darn cute. I’m not ‘with it’ either when it comes to music of today as I’m stuck back in the oldies with you. 😉
