Late August Gardens

To avoid the wet muddy trails and buggy conditions today Mara B and I rode the quiet neighborhood road this morning. It was very calm and pleasant. We did have two bicycle riders zoom around a curve toward us and we don’t often have experience with bikes, but Mara was fine and the boys really friendly.

The late summer gardens we rode past looked stunning to us! Ornamental grasses and various blooms highlighted a few of the gardens we stopped to enjoy.

The air was warm and humid and the gnats and flies were ‘bugging’ both of us. Mara did wear her “quiet ride” mask and I also put her fly mask (thanks Char) on her when she returned to her paddock. (to keep flies out of her eyes.)

It was a good change of route and routine for our Monday together.
