At 6:45 this morning it was 66 degrees F, with clear skies. Was short on time, but needed to connect with the morning. So rode on Discovery II to the pond at Japan House because I’d seen cardinal flowers there … Continue reading

Sunday 19 June 2016. Farther West on Old Church

This morning at 5:35 (missed the 5:23 sunrise, alas) it was 68 degrees and mostly clear as I brought out Rhododendron (after almost leaving on Discovery II, out of daily habit) and headed south and ultimately west. Planned to go … Continue reading

It was 63 degrees F at 5:53 this morning as I rolled Rhododendron out of the garage for parts southwest. First stopped for a yellow (and sure looks life pink in the middle) cabbage rose pic. The stalks and pods … Continue reading

Thursday 26 May 2016. Weaver Pond

At 5:45 this morning it was 66 degrees F under thinly cloudy skies. Absentmindedly took Discovery II (hybrid bike) rather than Rhododendron (road bike) so decided to go for a quick trip rather than a long ride and just check … Continue reading

Saturday 1 August 2015. Weaver Park and North High Cross Road. 

At 5:35 this morning it was, according to the phone weather ap, 61 degrees and clear, the just-past full moon getting close to the western horizon. But the air felt warmer than 61 and didn’t bring a jacket. Hoped I … Continue reading

Saturday 27 June 2015. Catching Up at Weaver Park

It was 61 degrees F at 6:00 AM (still having trouble not fussing with this and that additional task before departure !?), the sky with plenty of irregular clouds, especially close to the horizon, but enough space to intermittently let … Continue reading

Saturday 5 July 2014. The Summer Frogs and Flowers of Weaver Park

It was 61 degrees F this morning at 6:15 (having trouble seizing that fleeting summer bonus of daylight!). The sky was full of loosely-packed clouds that seemed to be spreading apart. Another gorgeously beautiful day was beginning! Wanted to ride … Continue reading

Saturday 28 June 2014. Prairie Flowers at Three Non-Meadowbrook Sites

This morning at 5:38 it was 72 degrees and cloudy. The weather ap on the iPhone said it was storming(?) but that it would clear soon. Actually, there were dry patches on the street and sidewalk when I got Rhododendron … Continue reading
