A Summer Stroll

This summer is certainly shaping up to be a lot different than last year.  The rains of 2017 brought lush growth and glorious colour to the wild areas as well as feeding the trees and shrubs that were thirsty after the drought of 2016.  It looks like we’re repeating that hot and dry season again this year!  Early morning is a good time to stroll the path before the sun sends everyone, including Sparky the chipmunk in search of shade or air-conditioning.
