The March of the Flowers
Today, before heading off to a Labor Day picnic at our nextdoor neighbors' house, I took The Dotter for her naptime drive. I like to drive along the Three Lakes Road for about a half an hour, then turn around and drive back--this is long enough so that by the time we return home, The Dotter is back in the land of the living again. (Digression: The Dotter is the only person I know of who wakes up from naps even snarkier and nastier than I do. The only thing to do is to grit your teeth and hold on for about half an hour, then she's all bright & sunshiny & cheery. Just don't pee in her Cheerios in that half an hour.) The roads are lined with sunflowers right now. The scarlet gillia--which have had a banner year--are fading, and the little yellow flowers--goldfields, showy goldeneyes, goldenrod, etc.--are starting their September explosion to take their place. The March of the Flowers is very orderly hereabouts. In the spring, the first thing you'll see are wild pink phlox. They hide out in clumps in the woods, dainty, delicate, pink little flowers, shy and hideaway. Next comes the lupine. We have at least three varieties of lupines here, and they last all summer long. There are the tall blue/purple ones (with an occasional sport sporting pink or white blossoms), and there is the tiny, matted, fuzzy-leafed lupine whose blossoms fade into the background in the shadows.

    Hope you don't mind me posting this bit of free promotional advice to you (but you do have anonymous enabled on your blog) but us bloggers and website developers should stick together. Website/blog promotion doesn't get any better than this - and it is FREE!! Great blog and if you want to increase the traffic to your blog or website then I would definitely recommend this site. My traffic figure doubled in one week, then trebled the next! (If you've got affiliate promotions on the go this really helps the extra income ;-) The best thing is it doesn't cost a bean!! It's new and it's radical - check it out!! All the best with the blog, Rick.
