A Walk with Dad, Photos by Amy
The sweet flag that I planted years ago back by the pond is flowering. I hope Amy will forgive me. This photo is not up to her focus standards, but by the time I get back there to try again some critter will probably have eaten it.
The pond is full of duckweed and eggs. Mmmm nice frog's legs. I've always liked them best on the frog!
This is a really good looking frog. He could be a Prince, but they are so hard to catch!
The back meadow is deeply green. The milkweed is just beginning to flower.
This large wad of "spit" on the Larch tree caught Amy's eye. We always called the owner of this spit wad a spittlebug. I really have no idea who the culprit actually is.
Mushrooms are fascinating too. Long ago I decided that fungus are best photographed and left alone.
Ed and Amy arrived back down the path to the garden just in time for lunch. What a memorable way to spend time together on Father's Day 2011!
