I rather like how it looks with the grass grown tall and the wildflowers having the run of the place.
We've been very good about social distancing, but we thought if we can visit on the street with the neighbors, then we should be able to visit with our dearest friends in The Great Outdoors. We haven't seen them since the beginning of all this, sniff sniff. We took separate cars and tried our best to keep apart, but there may have been some moments... For the most part I think it worked out pretty well.
Wildflowers were everywhere. I could fill an album with photos of each species in bloom, but there were just too many: Bleeding Heart, Cranesbill, Heuchera (Coral Bells), Buttercup, Forget Me Not, English Daisy... just to name a few.
Here's LuLu in the Buttercups:
Wally in the Forget Me Nots:
Lucy, our friends' mini-Pomeranian, in the English Daisies:
Later in the afternoon we walked into the woods near the park. You can almost imagine alligators lurking in the water and snakes dripping from the trees, but it's just our spring-damp Oregon coast woodland... nothing scary here at all.
We did not have to cross this foot bridge, but I requested Rich do it for a photo. The idea was to have the dogs stand with him, but Wally was not thrilled with the idea. LuLu stayed on this side.
It was a beautiful day, then the rain came back and stayed for a few days and we were only able to get out for the briefest periods, but we always manage at least a little walk. We're doing fine, living life. Hoping you're fine, too.
