Ballard Park, April 23, 2019

Our World Tuesday and All Seasons

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, April 21, 2019
Ballard Park is a nice little city park with a walking track through a wooded area. The small structures you see are exercise stations to encourage people to stretch and do simple arm and leg exercises.

When we were there Sunday afternoon, there were wildflowers blooming under the trees. I think these are Wood Sorrels (or some kind of Oxalis).

There is a small lake with ducks and geese. Children (and adults, too) enjoy feeding them, and there are two children's playgrounds for their entertainment, too.

I was surprised to see a Great Blue Heron there with the Canada Geese!

It flew when people got too close, but landed again not far away.

And of course, there are squirrels!

The park also includes acres of sports fields, but I was more interested in the natural world side of it.

I hope you have a beautiful day!

  1. ...it's nice that all these critters shared their home with you.

  2. Love these dainty wildflowers, and the birds and squirrel enjoying spring! Hope you take time for yourself to enjoy this time of the year, Lea! (I remember some time ago there was some physical things going on with your hubby, but please be kind to yourself and take a break once in a while -and let someone stay with him, if needed) Anyway, you deserve to enjoy life:):) Many thanks for linking up these lovely items to All Seasons!

  3. You wonder what the geese think of the even bigger heron.

  4. Very cool park. I'm imagining that the geese and heron flew together on the same air current and became great friends, but they're not letting the humans know.

  5. Looks a beautiful place.
    Lovely photographs.

    All the best Jan
