Morning Stroll

Ben and I took a 3 mile hike this morning; early before it got too hot. We walked through a meadow that was like walking through a huge bouquet, there were so many different varieties of flowers blooming-Brown Eyed Susans, Daisies, Chicory, Purple Thistles, Butterfly Weed. Deep breath....and....sigh! What a way to start the day!

We also saw an interesting wasp nest. From a healthy distance of course:

We chatted a while with Mr. Groundhog:
And then we came home and mourned the death of my hydrangea bushes. The thunderstorms last night knocked them all down:
And now it's time to take a shower and get ready for the day! Fourth of July plans include a geocache, quilting and the movie "License To Wed". Doesn't get much better than that does it?! Have a great Fourth everyone!

So sorry about your hydrangeas. We didn't get hit with much from the storms last night. Funny what a difference a few miles can make.

What a gorgeous walk! Can't wait to hear about License to Wed - I just love, love Jim from the Office! Sadly, as I grow my hair out I look more and more like him!:)
