One Perfect Day
Yesterday was an absolutely perfect June day. Dry and sunny, but not too hot, with low humidity, so I ventured out with the camera for the first time in a week. Felt strong enough to take Abbie for her morning walk, and it was good to get back to my usual routine.
Wild Roses are blooming everywhere and I also came across some Cow Vetch next to the trail.
Today has been more cloudy, but still pleasant, but we might be in for some thunderstorms tomorrow.
We have a ‘Country Lawn’, which means we drive on it, ride horses on it and mow whatever comes up. We don’t use weed killer, fertilizer or pesticides on it – just try to live and let live. Consequently it rarely looks perfect. In Spring it is dotted with Dandelions, and during droughts it turns crispy brown, the grass dies off, and only the weeds continue to grow. Now after an unusually wet Spring, it is as lush and green as we have ever seen it. It makes for a lot of extra mowing, but we are enjoying it while it lasts!
