it's getting to look a lot like Spring-time ...

If I didn't take my camera,  maybe I'd walk just a little faster.  There's some distractions along the way and I don't like to miss that little window of opportunity to 'find' something that's worth sharing here;  a little from my world.

This morning, it was just 7 degrees celcius at 7 a.m., a little crisp on the fingertips for a while but it doesn't take long to warm through.

 Love these stone walls.  I think it might be a Protea at front, budding up.  I must watch out for when it comes into flower.

Maybe you would walk faster without your camera, but would you walk any further? I find I go further when I know there are some gardens up ahead...
Lovely photos!!

My camera always accompanies me on walks. I don't want to miss any photo ops!
