I’ve walked mostly without my camera these days, mainly due to the fact I have no internet but also because I’ve been trying to actually walk for fitness and that doesn’t really work out when you stop every 3 feet to photograph a mushroom, dragonfly or miscellaneous leaf. However, today was different. I wanted you to see the road I drive down on my way to work, the road that leads to the glorious café that DOES have internet. My road for now.
Since the neighbors dogs seem to have taken up permanent residence at our temporary home, they came with me, along with Nosey. All-in-all, I was accompanied by 4 dogs.
I don’t even like dogs.
Therefore I only went a mile, because if I went beyond a mile I would have to walk past houses with dogs and didn’t want to scream, jump, yell and generally make a poor first impression on the neighborhood. So I turned around and headed back, pack in tow.
Here is what I saw.
A very wet road and the backside of a dog. I’m thankful for the rain, so no complaining here! Just an observation.
I desperately want a Mimosa in my yard. Pink flowers, smells good, lets off a slight mist, cool tree in general. However, I keep reading they are messy and not fun for the yard. Maybe I’ll plant one at the edge of the yard…
It is really a very pretty road on which to walk.
And look what I found!
I wasn’t sure what it was at first, so I sent a picture of it to my mother, knower of all things.
She had never come across one but thought it was a groundnut vine. Thanks to Google, I confirmed her suspicions and read a little about them. They are a lovely vine that enjoy shade, grow tubers that can he harvested and eaten in the fall (Kinda like potatoes) and they were a major food source for American Indians!
Cool beans! Or tubers.
Anyway, the best time to transplant is fall so I have it marked on my calender to dig some tubers next month and take them to our new place. I think they are lovely, even if I never eat one.
Whilst taking pictures I almost tripped on this thing……
Cute. but always in the way.
In case any of y’all forgot…..
I guess I need to get one. I’m the only person who doesn’t have this sign in my yard. Although, to be honest, I don’t think Jesus cares if I have the sign or not. He’d rather I not kick the dog. Which is harder than merely putting a sign in the yard.
Look! Polk berries dripping with rain!
