On My Walks

On My Walks

This morning I stopped to pull a few weeds and water my flower bed before I headed out for my walk.  It was so pleasant out, cooler than usual.  As I toured my trail, I saw four colonies of ants in turmoil, massed on the sidewalks.  Is this the season for them to move house?  I also noticed that most of the yellow flowers I saw the other day on the grasses had disappeared; they must be short-lived.  Two small boys were out biking on the trail.  The larger one passed me several times eying me intently; I spoke but didn’t strike up a conversation.  The smaller one called to a toddler on his deck with his mom and baby sibling.  The toddler’s mom encouraged him to call back.  Learning to be a big kid, one act at a time.
