Recently I have spent a lot of time with my front steps.
I would sweep them,
watch snow cover them over,
shovel off ice,
admire their sturdiness
remember the dogwood petals
that fall and cover them in April,
and so forth, onward and upward.And not so long ago it took a lot of concentration just to walk up them, during my time with a sore hip -- lead with the right leg, pull up the left to join it, one step at a time.
This morning I realized I haven't ever done a post featuring these steps -- a fine example of taking something right in front of me for granted! I photograph them all the time, so what is there not to love here. It is also a way to celebrate the fact that my leg is now better, and I can run up the steps, take them two at a time, or just enjoy them along the way.
FROM INSIDE, LOOKING OUT:
|Jason says these are deer tracks!|
|Melva to the rescue|
SPRING AND SUMMERS:
There are more step photos, and there will continue to be new ones. It should be noted that the rocks for these steps came from an old chimney, which is what gives them their distinctive texture. Our hillside is now their resting place.
