The thrill of adventure…

It seems that at this point in my life…. I am a lot of different things.  Certain people have some very unique names for me, at times.

But, I know for positively, absolutely, sure… one thing I am NOT…. is a tree, plant, and flower aficionado. Not even close.

I marvel at the people who know it, and know it well.

But for me… every walk around our property becomes an exploration and naming adventure. It is quite exciting, really.  However, while it is a truly joyous occasion on a personal level, I suspect that those people I am walking with…. may become….  annoyed from time to time.    Yet… I press on.

Why, just tonight, nature abounded.   I saw a batch of…. what I call…. The Midwestern Shiny Berry Bushes. We passed some Queen June’s Bobbins. The back prairie was filled with Yellow Fleece Stalks. And of course, one of my favorites are the Whacky-Doodle Balls on a Stick.

Nature. The Final Frontier. Don’t leave home without it.

“Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift.”
