Longtime…

Its been a few minutes since posting any pictures here…

After a long winter and a very unusually cool spring… hot and steamy summer is HERE! 74 degrees out at 5 am and humid.

I noticed yesterday that one of the highway department fields had been planted with safflowers and had just started to bloom. I have missed my walks and the Kentucky DOT provides such a nice opportunity… and as luck would have it the city has a small Arboretum next door, that has improved steadily since moving here (3 years ago this month).

The flowers….

zinnia

A Zinnia, I love the 2 colors (3 if you count the orange band between yellow and pink/purple)

orange

Not sure what flower this is…

and

thistle-down

this one is my favorite!
