Wildflower Walk

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Yesterday, we all went on a really nice all-family walk!  Not only was it nice because we were all together, but it actually wasn't raining!  Whew.  Anyway, we saw lots of pretty wildflowers along the way, so I thought I'd share some of our photos with you.  Ready to get walking?  Get a drink of water, then let's head out!

Here we are, walking up the almost end of the first set of hills:

"No rain, but still plenty of puddles around for the asking, Cam!"
"I know!  Isn't it great?!!?  I love puddles!"

See?  We were just getting started and already there was something for everyone!

"Cool sky, huh?"
"We can see forever up here!"

It's really beautiful on top of our hills - we have amazing views!

Anyway, at the bottom of that hill in front of us, we turned onto the Hudson Trail.  We saw lots of pretty wildflowers along the route, like this:

Here's a closer look:

Isn't it a beautiful color?

We also saw a few Daisies!

Oh. I know what you're thinking, but unlike a certain sweet, playful, lovable, bi-eyed member of the family, I do not try to eat flowers. (Just herbs in Mom's now defunct herb garden.) (Maybe.) (There is no proof it was me.). ANYWAY ... here's the Daisy:

Ox-Eye Daisy?  Maybe.  A Daisy of some sort.

We also got to walk up the Water Tower Trail:

"Something just ran across the path!"
"I saw it!  COOL!"

We saw some kind of small animal run across the path!  It was very exciting.  Mom didn't catch it. (Sadly, neither did we.)

Right - back to flowers.  Can you see the yellowy flowers up on the right side of the path? Here's a better look:

We also saw lots of Honeysuckle:

Right. Sorry. Try again:

It was a really great walk! We love seeing all the beautiful, colorful wildflowers!

"I see more puddles!"
"Score!"

Thanks for coming with us!  We hope you enjoyed our walk as much as we did!

Cammie!
