Another Tuesday, Another Walk
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/flourish/
So, yesterday I went for a walk on my lunch hour. I was glad I did because I was tuckered when I got home from work, so all I did was a little housework, watering the garden, and making dinner. I was tuckered probably partly because I walked up Mt. Tolmie for my walk (I’ve posted about that walk before), but mostly because of other stuff which I won’t go into here.
Anyway, I thought I would share with you some of the things I saw on my mountain trek!
Flowers. I thought these pink ones (peonies, perhaps?) were unusual.
The last of the Camas.
And I saw lots of reluctant-poser bees along the way.
Here I am taking the trails up.
Lots of the grass is brown. It’s been very dry here, and doesn’t look like we will get rain again for a long time.
Everything continues to be early – here are blackberries flowering. This walk will be quite delicious in a month or two.
A few views from the top. It’s hard to see here, but I am looking towards home and there is a cruise ship in the distance. The cruise ship tour bus (well, one of them) was driving up to the top of Mt. Tolmie just as I was heading down. Tourists!
And finally, resting at home after another long day…
