catching up on pics from our sunday hike...
since it rained ALL day on saturday we wanted to go where the water
would be flowing in the wildlife refuge,,, the 'forty foot hole trail.'
i love 'uniola grass' - also known as 'fish on a pole.'
the sun and warmth brought the collard lizards out.
|a damsel in distress!|
i rescued this damselfly from drowning.
|the tree won!|
maximillian sunflowers are in abundance right now!
the monarchs were enjoying a rest on them during their migration.
i had been feeling very restless and unfocused,,,
so spending some time in beautiful nature helped to relax me. :)
greg & i had a wonderful time.

"i mark the summer's swift decline;
the springing sward its grave-clothes weaves.
oh, could i catch the sounds remote!
could i but tell to human ear
the strains which on the breezes float
and sing the requiem of the dying year!
