Ralphie gets his chance to visit the trail with Christine

Nature trail exploring is the topic of the day. Remember the other week when I wanted to visit the trail with Christine? That was the day when I showed you how she used photographs from the nature trail to inspire her watercolor artwork. There was one glorious day during the Spring, when I did get a chance to explore the inspiring trail with Christine. As you can see in the photo above, I was tucked into Christine’s bike basket for our inspiring ride.

Beautiful Phlox wildflowers on the nature trail

Christine invited me just in time to see the last of the beautiful blooming Phlox wildflowers. Aren’t they pretty in all of their purple vibrancy? During the early Spring they can be found blooming in many spots on the trail.

I had to take some time to smell the Phlox flowers. Ahhhh….they are such a nice sight to see along the trail.

As we beheld so many sights along the nature trail as well as a lot of sunshine, we took a break on a bench. Yikes…..I almost fell off of the bench. Since I am only a small felt bunny, the bench size did not accommodate my size very well. Nonetheless, it was nice to stop for a break before continuing our bike ride adventure out on the nature trail.

Finding those spots of inspiration along the nature trail

I wanted to have a firsthand experience of the places where Christine finds inspiration. Whenever we stopped along the nature trail, I wanted to explore at ground level to find the hidden and overlooked nooks and crannies that Christine searches for. These are the places which ignite her imagination.

There was a large green leaf in the shade that I had to jump on for some lounging and relaxing on our day in the warm and sunny Spring air. It was such a fun experience to see the trail with my own eyes and to see where Christine finds her inspiration. I hope you enjoyed your time. I will chat with you later.
