Monday 11 May 2015. Light Rain at Dawn

At 5:25 this morning it was 64 degrees F and raining lightly.

Headed out to Meadowbrook Park to see if there might be any spiderwort in bloom; noticed some in gardens around the neighborhood.

Yesterday was the best mothers day ever! Oh, the wonders of maturity! Carried that thought with me as I quickly rounded the big loop around the Meadowbrook prairie.

Rode in the low light and didn’t stop till a little way past the rabbit-statue bridge, where the light was coming up but the disc of the sun had not quite broken the horizon.

Almost ran into a deer right before the
little arched bridge over Davis Creek.

Stopped at the Freyfogel overlook to get a view of the early May prairie in the soft rain.

There may have been spiderwort in bloom, but it was too dark to tell for sure.

It was a brief ride. More to feel than to see.


About Velo du Jour

I am a 61 year old mom/wife, former biologist, and presently certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and I love, besides biking (and other things), nature, swimming, drawing, photography, yarn, exploring adoption themes, and putting people at ease. In April 2012, I participated in "30 Days of Biking " on Twitter, sponsored by a group of "joyful cyclists" in Minneapolis during the month of April. I loved tweeting about each day's ride so much I didn't want to stop! "Velo du Jour" is a continuation of recording and sharing my rides post-30 Days of Biking.
