Listed below are links to weblogs that reference walk with me wednesday.. hmmm.:


We saw Jupiter, and remarked on the left/right shift...just didn't know which planet we were looking at. Thank you!

What a very full season it has been...everything is larger than normal, must be all that rain.

Great photo of your garden spider and her web! And those pond lily roots make a very interesting sight..nice shot of them floating against the reflection of a cloudy sky!

And the bears around here have been visiting the store dumpster, dragging what they can up the hill into the wood. My insurance? I carry my pocket air horn...singing is good too ;-)

Those roots are scary!
If I tried singing in the woods, I'd only make the wildlife cry. Weeping chipmunks are a sad, sad sight...

What a delightful post, the anticipation you created with your account was very good. The account about the lonely bull was quite touching, animals can become quite attached to each other, even when they are other species. My friend's poodle's best friend was a cat (she chased all other cats but this one). They ate together and slept together and cuddled frequently. Thanks for a wonderful account of your time out and about.The bear is especially scary!

How did you manage to kill the water lilies? They must be a different variety than I grew up with because the only legal and effective way to kill them was to manually dig them up by the roots like the weeds they are. If Mom was out working on them she would have us spend an hour with her in the muck before we were aloud to go swim out in the lake. That stuff stank like rotten fish and was very slimy. If I ever find the idiot responsible for introducing it (it's wasn't native) I would love to bury him in the same muck as payment for that awful summer chore.

I enjoy reading your blog. You're a good writer and your stories take me away to another place..for a few moments...to a place very different than the dessert that I live in. :-)

maybe the farmer should bring the horse back to keep company with the bull.

I'm there with you. The male hummers left today, and only voracious females are remaining. They feed longer, hang out closer. You can tell they sense the need for more. Maybe there is an acknowledgement of less competition?

Yup, my male hummers have been gone for more than a week. Females and juevies are everywhere and loud. Saw a small halk (or falcon) shase one last evening. Maybe tired of the racket. or hungry.

Those roots do look like sea monsters.LOL
Summer has been rather odd here in Maryland.

I just stubled across your "Smatterings" today. Lovely! I was very entertained, Thank You! You are book marked and I'll be back often! Southern NH Groupie...

Beautiful spider! I didn't have any this year, perhaps next.
