This Time to the Left

Mom and I walked the Farmington Canal Trail again.   This time when we left the parking lot, we headed to the left.  Last time we headed to the right.
I see a tunnel.   That means we get to cross under Sherman Avenue and we don't have to deal with busy traffic!  Awesome!
 We found this neat boarded up old brick building.  
 Do you see him?  In the not too far away distance is the Sleeping Giants head and tummy!  As we continued to walk, our trail lead us to a busy intersection and we would have had to cross too many lanes of traffic and mom said NOPE!
 So we retraced our steps and continued on for another couple of miles. 
 We have had very warm weather and look what I found.  SNOW!
 And near this stream there are yellow flowers getting ready to open.
 Mom googled them and we think they're Marsh Marigolds.  
 Today is a beauty.   Come on, mom!
 What the heck is this?   Our first floor neighbor, Tom, has been having fun decorating the yard ☺
Love ya lots♥

What a great walk and we quite agree about traffic we hate having to cross busy roads. Love the little flowers, everything is starting to feel like Spring. Happy Easter! Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx

Oh Molly what a wonderful walk you and your Mom had and saw so many interesting things. I hope that is the last snow you see until at least November. How long do you two walk each day?

It's great that you don't have to cross the busy streets. We think you'll soon see lots of pretty flowers on your walks.

I think the tunnel would have made me nervous. The photo looked spooky to me. Have a good Easter!

That's a great walk. SHE would call that a 'clean' mud, nice paved path. Now, you can choose which direction you want to go.

Another fun walk for you and your Mom. Those flowers are very pretty. We also love seeing that snow:)

We bet your neighbor is getting ready to extend a big welcome to the Easter Bunny.

We have the Marsh Marigolds behind our yard and it is creeping into our yard it is very aggressive but it does bloom pretty but here only once starting about now. In full bloom it is a sea of yellow. Glad you got to enjoy your day.
