Hiking, Critters & Marietta

Hello Friends!
I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. I can't believe that it is already over :(
In Saturday Rich and I went up to Bur Mill park in Greensboro to take part on a group hike for The 2012 National Trails Day.

It was a very nice easy trail and we hiked 10 miles. There were about 10 of us. They also were having other activities in the park, a 5k race and other events.
After the hike Rich and I went to one of our favorite delis for a sandwich.

This Luna Moth was hanging out on the side of the building. I don't see these very often.

When I got home I saw this guy hanging out in the garden.
This morning we went out for another hike on our regular trail. It is amazing what different things or changes you see each week on the trail.

There was a big tree down. We had severe thunder storms on Friday and it must have come down then.

We hiked a different way and saw this spring.

And we saw these guys.

I thin these 2 snails were out on a date. Do you see the one eating the mushroom and then the one at the very bottom of the pic in the center?
I did a lot of cooking. I am ready for the upcoming week!
I also worked on Marietta.

The over 2 stitching is done now onto all the over 1 motifs.

I might put this down for a little bit to work on some of my other projects.
I hope that everyone had a great weekend and I hope that you had some time to stitch.

Thanks for stopping by!
