8/28/13 City Forest

Yesterday Kelley went with Mary to the nursing home and played with a lot with 3 different puppies. Mary reported that by the afternoon she was tired and perhaps a bit gimpy and tired of puppies- so today was an easy 2 hours at the forest ( it's also supposed to rain this afternoon). We started from the end of Kittredge Rd. so she got a real swim at both the start and finish of the hike. We then did our usual loop of the West Trail and the old rail bed. Kelley seemed no worse for the activity yesterday and enjoyed greeting people and seeing two of her dog friends.

There aren't many butterflies left and those that are tend to be a bit beat up.

There are still lots of bees and wasps

and still a few wildflowers

A pleasant outing and I was pleased that Kelley seemed her usual self.


  1. Love your shot of the bee in the purple flower!

    1. Thanks Linda- a chicory - there seems to be a lot of it around this year.

  2. Good to hear Kelley is doing well..
