Hanging With Big Foot

It’s been a week since I posted, so I thought that today would be a good day to get back in the blogging swim of things :-) As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve not been at my best physically, so I’ve been preoccupied with all of that. But I’m optimistic that things are going to turn out fine. In the meantime I’m just not going to worry about it. I’ll keep you posted though. Thanks so much for the get well wishes. As of this very moment though…I’m fine and dandy ;-)

So anyway, two posts ago I shared a picture of a big foot and said that I would let you know where I found such a big foot. Well, here’s the rather impressive big foot…

I would love to have that in our backyard. LOL. I’d probably paint its toenails and plant flowers around it ;-)

This rather impressive foot is actually part of a…FOOTPATH. Clever huh? Yep, it’s part of a footpath at Westonbirt Arboretum. Brit Boy and I have visited many times and it’s one of my favorite places. Check out this link to read about another one of our visits there. I love Westonbirt because it’s beautifully simple…it’s just you and nature and I love that!

Here’s the rest of the footpath. They’ve laid out parts of stumps and scattered them through the woods. Isn’t that a neat idea? :-)

Of course I had to skip across a couple of them. What I really wanted to do was don some fairy wings and skip along the whole path ;-) Just a peek into my fantasy-filled thoughts. Lol. It was a beautiful day out. Brit Boy and I really enjoyed seeing all of the fall colors.

I took some photos of the leaves, but I feel like it might be too late to share them since we’re getting on towards winter now. Because of recent circumstances I got a bit behind. But if you all want to see some of them, please leave me a comment and let me know and I’ll gladly honor your requests :-)

Well, I’ll leave it there for now. I’m going to be posting more frequently again now that I’ve gotten over some hurdles, so I hope that you’ll visit me again. And I’m going to be doing some visiting too.

Have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you later…

Nice bit of sculpture, and a nice photo. Did you ever go to the arboretum down at Romsey?

I think it's called Hiller Gardens or something similar. They have art exhibits scattered through the grounds over the summer.

Dori said...

See, you and I think alike. LOL.

Yay! I'm so glad we've reconnected! I will be visiting you now that I know you're back blogging. I've missed you :) Welcome back! Hugs!

No I haven't visited the arboretum in Romsey, but I'm putting it on my list now for the summer :) Thanks for the tip and for visiting me!

Thank you for adding me. Finding your group was a wonderful revelation! :) I'm excited to join the party!

Hi Dori,

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better. I love the big foot and definitely think the toes should be painted! :)

Dori said...

Thanks :) And yep, those toes should be painted ;-)
