WAG, part 2

I am enjoying WAG- the adventure writing group so much I have decided to post it on Saturdays for all of you following along- and for those who want to join in- feel free:

For this week go outside, and sit for a minute. (This can be in your yard or garden, on a city street, in a park, in a shopping centre, where ever you choose!) Soak in everything you see, hear, smell, etc, for a moment, and then describe something that you did not notice at first. This can be anything! Just make it something that you overlooked when you first arrived. Keep your descriptions as concrete as possible.

Here's mine:

I went into my garden, sat down on the canvas swing and took it all in- the pebble stone patio, the yellow brown grass, the red painted picket fence, the bare french pussy willow tree, the ice encrusted lake, the grey clouded sky. I heard geese fly in. Sparrows twitter. A cardinal flash red-the brightest color in the garden. Mist, cold and damp wrapped me, filled my lungs, sending a shiver. The wet smell of thaw filled my nostrils. Then I saw it. The fat brown rabbit in heavy fur, watching me from under the evergreen bush. Big brown eyes studied my every move. Only it's nose twitched as it waited for me to do something. Anything. Perhaps leave so it could go back to sleep.

I loved this... such a nice surprise. I've been thinking about this exercise all week, but sadly I didn't have my notebook when I saw some of the most interesting things. But it's definitely opening my eyes!

Great description of a winter garden. Keep an eye on that rabbit! Haven't you ever seen Monty Python?

The WAG exercises have been fun. I'm looking forward to the next one.

I'm so jealous of your garden! ANd not just because of the furry visitors you get!
