Today's Flowers: Finding the River

From May 7, 2011


Walking with my daughter yestereday at Three Rivers Park in Woodbury, we came across these cherry blossoms as we followed the Pomperaug River and walked Clyde. This is one of the pup's favorite places. Adella's Dachshund is a chick magnet in his own mind. He chases all the girlie canines and even pursues some of the female two-leggeds when he has a mind to. He checked out a few fisherman--who seemed to enjoy him and the flowering trees more than their success in the river. Our dog is our social life.

Nearer to home, the swamp again teems with life as baby turtles struggle to survive the long walk across the road, the lone goose breaks my heart as he live on, a couple of geese seem to get a big kick out of standing on top of the beaver lodge, the red-winged blackbirds sing themselves silly, and the mayflies make of themselves a roving buffet as they loop-de-loop through the air.

In Connecticut (as in North Carolina), this is the Year of the Turtle. Drive carefully, and help our friends across the road every chance you get. Even reptiles need love.
