All Seasons–August 6, 2017

All Seasons

This is my favorite season–hiking season! I practically had all this beauty to myself. It was a peaceful journey–until something stirred up the Crows and Blue Jays. Traveled light, photos taken with iPhone 6 Plus.

You never know who you’ll meet along the way.

Sorry–poor quality photo of Red-spotted Purple butterfly. I don’t see these often, but I love the color variations.

Wednesday with Words

I went out to work in the garden recently, but my helpers got there first. I did clean up one end of the bed, then thought I’d reclaim the yarrow that had gotten lost in a sea of wildflowers. I ran into the helper at the bottom the page (SPIDER ALERT). 

So, I moved to the other end of the bed–and found a Praying Mantis busily tending that section. I went for my iPhone, snapped their pictures, and called it a day. 

In other backyard news, as I waited to pull out of the driveway today, I saw something in the road–as in something that had gotten run over. It was our wee opossum. 

I drove to Lake Lawson Lake Smith park to walk, and found the gate closed. They’ve been doing some upgrades, and it should be open tomorrow. Since I was out, wearing shoes and camera in tow, I thought I’d go to the botanical garden to walk. Upon checking the down-sized wallet, the card wasn’t with me. So, here I am at home, and will soon spend some time with the treadmill. I hope you have a lovely evening!
