Today, I'm taking a break from my vacation stories and will resume them tomorrow.
K and I have been reacquainting ourselves with our stomping grounds on our morning bike rides. Her chocolate fur glowed in the sun on a recent morning. She looks incredibly healthy in this photo but I've been seeing signs of fearfulness that concern me about her thyroid status. So, we visited the vet, again, today.Some flowers still shine here. Goldenrod tints the ground yellow. As I rode past a Goldenrod flower the other day, red and black beetles crawled all over it.When got off my bike to look more closely, I saw that they were taking advantage of the waning days of summer. Time to make progeny!My favorite aster has been brilliantly blooming over the past week. It's a bittersweet flower for me. I love its colors but it's always one of the last wildflowers of the year.
