5/31/12 City Forest

Another gray day with rain predicted. I also still have work to be done preparing the garden. City Forest for two hours ( near the end of our hike the sun came out). All the rain has resulted in  a lot of mosquitoes and there was little breeze. Every time I stopped to take a picture I was engulfed with them even though I had sprayed myself with bug dope- so not a lot of pictures. Kelley was happy with water everywhere and we met several friendly people and three other dogs.

Not the best picture but unusual markings


There were lots of Lady Slippers




  1. Those are unusual markings on that first insect/bug. I hear that mosquitoes are much worse this year due to the mild winter.
