Not All Flower Gardens Require Weeding

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Jada and I are still searching out new places to take our daily walk.
This morning I had to go the the grocery store and decided to hit my favorite IGA on 142 st. They have an excellent bakery and the butcher shop is wonderful as well. There is almost always a butcher available to talk to and they are happy to cut something custom for you which makes going a little out of my way to get there totally worth while.
So to be efficient (something new I'm trying. . .) I took Jada with me and we kept a close eye out for a likely walking spot.
We found a great one in  the Mckinnon Ravine. You get at in in an odd way but it was a lovely walk that led us right to the river's edge which thrilled Jada no end and she jumped in before I had time to stop her! (of course Henry and I had just given her a bath!)
The neatest part of the walk though, was all the wild flowers we saw.
You just have to love a flower garden that doesn't need weeding!




Another adventure on an unknown path!




I love rose hips and often use them when decorating for fall or Christmas.




For some reason my camera kept registering these flowers as a mountain scene, so they are a little out of focus.




One of my favorites, these little flowers are pale purple. I think they are a type of wild aster.




These flowers are so pretty but I have no idea what they might be.




From the look (and smell) of the leaves theses flowers are likely in the crysanthumum family. Oddly, what looks like the center of a flower, is the actual flower. Kind of cool. . .




These flowers were white and likely asters as well.
All in all, a lovely start to my day!
