As usual we skipped spring.
We went directly from winter to summer.
Snow is finally melted except on the high peaks.
|Corn Husk Lilies (no flowers yet)
Wildflowers are blooming.
Mornings we have breakfast on the deck.
Afterward, I work in the gardens or hike.

Now that I'm 78, my "hikes" are shorter.
Instead of 10 miles, I'm happy with 5 or less.
I think I should call them "wanderings".
I stop often to admire the scenery.
Moose have just given birth.
Bears are on the prowl.
When I walk through the logging cut, I see mountains near and far.
However, in dense forests, animals can appear around every curve.
