On Tuesday, I promised I’d share the photos that went with that day’s “Saturday in the Park” post and yesterday I highlighted a shot of one of the hundreds of drop-bedecked spider webs for the Weekly Photo Challenge.
But, to quote Maria, let’s start at the very beginning, after I leave the parking lot and walk down the first section of trail surrounded by forest. Before I emerge into the prairie section, I pass a grass-covered path off to the left that seems to invite the walker onto another path…or perhaps into another dimension. It’s a beautiful place to walk but rather muddy after all the rain that helped show off the spider webs.
Yesterday’s spider web was just one of hundreds of webs on view thanks to the drops of water clinging to their lines. Here’s a small section, highlighted by the sun behind them.
Even when I don’t meet any people, there’s always someone willing to make a comment or two, although not always willing to do so to my face!
Although there are drifts of daisies scattered throughout the prairie area, wild irises hide here and there.
We’ve made it almost through the prairie section, but there are still some things to see. Next week, we’ll take a look at them.
