Love ItLove It

I miss hiking!

It has been a month since I have really gotten to go hiking. One very long month, and I am itching to get back at it. I also am running out of pictures to post on here… 🙁 

I decided to go out in the yard and take some pictures of whats blooming, the pictures below are them. 

I have paired them with some hiking quotes I have gathered along the way. 

Enjoy. 🙂 

#1 My hibiscus

Quote from an unknown author. 

I would rather be hiking in the rain, than sitting inside at a desk on a sunny day.

#2 Another angle.

"Bring a compass.  It's awkward when you have to eat your friends." - Unknown

#3 Plumbago Flowers

This bush is really taking off. It blooms all summer long. 

#4 Closer…

"Never follow someone else's path unless you're in the woods and you're lost, and you see a path.  By all means, you should follow that." - Ellen Degeneres

#5 Gladiolus

 "Everyone needs someone who will call and say, 'Get dressed.  We're going on an adventure.'" - Unknown

#6 Almost done blooming, until next year.

 "There is no wifi in the forest, but you will find a better connection." - Unknown

#7 Columbine Flowers

I started these from some seeds I had collected. They bloom all summer as well. 

#8 Shadows…

  "Do more things that make you forget to check your phone." - Unknown

#9 Ground cover.

I took a cutting off of a plant when I was hiking and planted it in the yard. Now the whole yard is covered in blue...

  1. Great pictures and great quotes!

    One of the things the twins complain about (constantly) is walking outdoors. They always ask why we have to walk outside every day.

    I remind them that their dog needs to exercise!!!!!

    But more importantly that we all need to be outside.

    Stunning flowers!
