In the park, the plaza, the city children are running and families are celebrating St. Patricks Day in Hot Springs Arkansas. Nature is being engulfed in a party and in the distance the faint sound of Celtic pipes and drums are getting louder with each step. Fountains are bubbling green and people are out enjoying a perfect Hot Springs Day. The pansies are in full bloom creating a colorful display among the revelers.
In Hot Springs National Park the Northern Mockingbirds are singing and mimicking a wide variety of sounds. As always my husband Rick has a lovely song fest with the birds and I suspect the next time he visits the Mockingbirds will have added Celtic instruments to their repertoire. Spring Trees are colorful as leaves, buds and blossoms burst open. The Forest is painted in vibrant pink, orange, silver and green twinkling is a subtle breeze.
Get out and play in the Urban Jungle, Nature is everywhere.
This was really a special hike in that it was partially in the park and part in the city. I loved the pansies; forgot how gorgeous they are and tulips. Of course the mockingbird (singing along with it always mesmerizes me); discovering a new breed of doggie is fascinating; it was so gorgeous; loved the green water and watching all the participants gearing up for the parade (even if half of them could barely stand up); and the haunting sounds of the Irish/Celtic band (which was excellent) gearing up for their concert after the parade. It was all fun and magic, and you got some beautiful photos as usual. Love ur DH Rick x0x0x
Every hike with you is special!
