Huron in the Sun
The past Sunday was Huron Park Day in our little town. I have never seen so many people in the park, or so many boats on the river! The wild geese population seemed to feel the same. Nonetheless, we managed to take a quiet walk through the woods and by the beautiful river.
All the white dots are water lilies--aren't they beautiful? Totally different from Monet's sentimental ponds, this one is full of sunshine, almost tropical.
The wooden bridge led to a hiking path into the woods. Anyone knows what fruits are these? Are they edible? Semi-transparent and plump, they looked like polished coral beads.
We got a tiny piece of prairie as well:
Ah I almost forgot to show you this--it's a good one.
Looking out of my window, there are trees and shrubs, and a vegetable garden kept by our neighbors. Cardinals and cats frequent the tomato vines and the herbs in the evening; they always bring a smile to my face. Squirrels check me out from time to time--see that cute buddy?
