Yesterday was as close to a perfect 10 as it gets. The sun was out, we hiked in T-shirts and we basked in the sun on top of Maple Mountain. There was good company and the dogs had a wonderful time, especially Abby. She found a couple of half-eaten dear legs to chomp on, something stinky to roll in, a few crusts of bread from our lunch and a large muddy pool to jump into. From a dog’s perspective it doesn’t get much better.
She also enjoyed the view.
Today, with equally perfect weather, I
m spending most of my day in the garden. Lettuce is in, seed potatoes are in under a thick blanket of straw. Berries are weeded. Ground is roto-tilled. More seeds will go in, in the next few days. Who knows – I might even get around to washing the car today.
But first – a few more pictures of yesterday’s beautiful hike:
