Honeysuckle & Heat Wave
We went to MY little park today - the one with the walkway in the trees only we went on the back path that goes through the woods. Dog oh dog we were doing some heavy panting !!!!
Now one of the things Mom LOVES about this park is the honeysuckle which is growing wild EVERYWHERE. We are sure the park people hate it because it has just taken over - but Mom says when it flowers in a couple of weeks it will be like walking on a cloud of scent "DUH.....we think the Mom has lost it!" Last year Mom found this gorgeous colored honeysuckle and this year she is going to snip a bit off and see if she can strike a cutting of it.
Here we are having climbed up the hill to where the lookout is. That was a workout in itself especially on such a HOT day :) We headed over the troll bridge (ah - I remember when the Dweeb was to scared to cross over it and Mom had to carry him - he was a wee pup back then and thankfully it doesn't worry him anymore)
The one good thing about going uphill is that it is all DOWNHILL on the other side. Of coarse we didn't have much shade but all the trees do have tiny leaves on them so it won't be long before this is our shady glen again. See all those splashes of green in the undergrowth - that is the honeysuckle - it is growing like crazy already.
