It's a great time of year.
The weather is fabulous.
not to hot, not to cold
spending lots of time outside
working in the garden,
oh yes, I hoe!
and, indeed the plants have grown.
I planted some flowers,
hoping they take!
Since the squirrels persist
in digging them up,
to plant there little treasures.
My other joy, bike riding.
I have already racked up many miles
or kilometers, whichever way you may go.
I came across a deer, last week, the first I had seen in a while
It was indeed a fleeting encounter, but, I was so close
I heard the deer inhale, before it fled.
Then there are always birds, and rabbits and groundhogs.
Even when I ride alone.
I never am.
