One morning recently, Barker and I had a very magical walk on the golf course. I love this time of year when there is barely a hint of Autumn in the air. He has more energy, and so do I! So, I thought I'd share a few pics with you.
The sun was barely rising over the hills in the background when we began our four miles.
Aren't the clouds wonderful.
The Candelabra Sumac is one of my favorite wild plants: it has beautiful branches and leaves (great for use in both printing and discharging), its seedpods are lovely, and they also make wonderful tea, if you so desire. It's leaves turn a brilliant red orange early in the Fall.
Oh, and of course, don't forget the Poison Ivy, ugh!
I've been after the maintenance men on the course for about a month now, to take care of this wasp nest. They don't seem to be very interested! I see no activity from it, thankfully!
The Goldenrod is yellow......remember that song? Hope it doesn't make you want to sneeze!
Barker can't decide if he wants to chase the crows or perhaps run under the sprinklers up ahead!
Pokeweed, another of my favorite wild plants! I hear that the berries make a wonderful natural dye, but I've not tried them....have you?
.....and these little guys are a fond memory from my childhood....did I mention I was a tomboy?
I love these little toadstools, and was so happy to get such a nice detail shot with my iPhone!
Thanks for walking along with me! I always love to hear from you.
