We have had a stretch of really dreary weather - clouds and on and off sprinkles. Also Kelley has not been interested - we did one very short hike along the Kenduskeag and otherwise just walked in the neighborhood. I am still adjusting her meds and working to help her lose weight.
Fifty degrees and cloudy this morning We had not started on the South Trail in some time and I was hoping the novelty would inspire Kelley.
First part of the trail is through a wet area.
with a small stream - a drink for Kelley
and then a wet spot in the trail to lie down in
Spring is in evidence with the new leaves coming out on the trees.
we find figures like these at various spots along the trails
The small pond didn't look very inviting to me.
but Kelley thought it was fine
I had given up hope of wildflowers when I found this flowering bush
Kelley did very well today - better than she has in a long time - but after about 45 minuted she sat to tell me we had gone far enough and we turned back
She quickly found another pool to lie in.
No more flowers but some new leaves
A nice hour and a half hike in spite of the lack of sun . We had the place to ourselves and it was peaceful. I was really pleased that Kelley did so well.
