Milkweed and Thistles

This summer I've done no day trips anywhere. Not to Prince Edward County, not to Ottawa, not to Westport, not to Perth, and definitely not to the USA (the border is closed to non-essential traffic). It feels odd, and yet it's been oddly productive. I guess when you're not driving a car you have more time to get things done. 

Instead of day trips, Bill and I walk. Sometimes we do a little drive, such as the 10 minutes (not even that, really) it takes to get to Lemoine Point, and walk at our destination. That's what we did a few days ago.

Thistles gone to seed.

 I love this time of year, when the days are warm but not hot, and the nights are a little chilly. Time to get out the sweaters and get them ready for fall.

Next post, pics of "Victoria". She's blocking on the dining room floor right now.
