Today has been a comedy of errors. And the rain has truly set in. Sunny walks in the woods earlier this week are already a distant memory.
A rainy, rainy walk today, though so much greenness! July bowing out true to her form this year, on both accounts.
The recent rain (three afternoons of thunderstorms, two accompanied by deluges, breaking the heat) has turned the first of the paths through the woods into a broom jungle, the sheer weight of all the water pushing down the whips and closing off the way forward. We picked our way through yesterday, and pruned a few lost branches today.
Auri loves the broom. Whenever we go for a walk, she presents Elfi and me with handfuls of the petals.
