With temperatures hovering in the 90s,
I haven't been walking as much this summer.

Thought I'd better get into walking shape for our upcoming
vacation, so I braved the heat yesterday to walk the trail
behind our house.

I was aghast to see the wildflowers SHOULDER high!

The walking path is owned by our Township and I KNEW
they mow it down in mid-July,
so I hurried home and posted a plea on Facebook
begging someone...anyone to pose for me that night!

Talk about perfect....my friend SUSAN
was eager to pose with the black-eyed-SUSANS.

We were stunned at how tall they grew this year.
I've never seen them so high!

Pretty Susan brought along her pretty friend Sarah.

Sarah wore my black-eyed-susan hair flower!

I cried this morning when I walked the trail and saw the big
mowers chopping them all down!!!!!

I cried because I was just in time to capture their beauty...


  1. These are stunning - makes me want to get outside and do a little portrait work. I'm not sure my sweet pea is in the mood to be outside just yet though.
