I took the little Walnut Grove bus from Fort Langley, where I live, into WG to cancel my car insurance, deposit my cheque, and pick up a few groceries. I got off at the stop right beside the bank, which is at the farthest point from Fort Langley, and then walked back the length of 88th Avenue to the plaza where Save on Foods is to do the rest. It took me about 20 minutes to walk that far. Probably because I kept stopping to take pictures of the flowers along the way that I never really notice when speeding by in my car. Well.. that's not exactly true. I am very aware of the beauty around me and love it when the cherry blossoms that line the street are in full blossom, and the heavy swags of Montana Rubens clematis over each gateway of a row of townhouses are in full bloom. But those are long finished, and in their place are these lovely flowers which, although I may notice the splash of color, I definitely miss the detail of.

And.... not so pretty...
I need to go walking more often.
