After Work… After Dinner

I didn’t sleep well last night.  I was kinda dragging after work.  Still, I felt the need to take a walk.  I went over to the bench on the far side of Big Pond.  Saw Great Blue Herons, a Green Heron, Kingfishers, swallows (not sure what kind), and a couple of Bald Eagles.  Didn’t have my camera, though.  Just as well, since I got rained on on the way out…  Soft, gentle, warm rain… didn’t bother me a bit.

PollinationAfter I got home, after dinner… I still felt the need to walk (with my camera this time!)…  I checked the radar and it looked like I could avoid raindrops between 7 and 8pm.  I chose the Girl Scout Council office property on Horton Hill because it’s mainly open and the light would be better there than in the woods.  The bees seemed to be taking advantage of the break in the rain, too… they were all over these purple flowers… some kind of knapweed or thistle, I think.

I Ate ThisThe red raspberries were ripe and yummy.  I ate handfuls.  Is there anything more delicious in the world than fresh, ripe, red raspberries?

I couldn’t resist snapping a couple of old favroites:  Queen Anne’s Lace and Buttercup.

  1. Jennifer, thanks for your beautiful phots and thoughtful words. I read about your blog in this morning’s paper in the Audubon column…you’ve got another blog-browser!

  2. Beautiful pictures. Sounds like a walk I would enjoy, but I will argue that I like wild black raspberries better than red and will tolerate annoying mosquitoes to get my fill.
