Joshua is so tired of sitting in the house day in and day out. But it is still way too warm to let him in the catio outside. Chewbacca loves to spend his morning outdoors. But he stays in the yard. Joshua loves his freedom and walks around in the neighborhood, where he gets himself in trouble. Now, he meows in the house until he can enjoy the outdoors with some fresh cat grass and catnip, again.
A couple of days ago, I enjoyed a short hike at the Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail, which is in Wynnwood Park on the peninsula nestled between the peninsulas of Hidden Cove Park and Stewart Creek Park in The Colony at Lewisville Lake north of Dallas, Texas. In the morning, we had some thunderstorm coming through. So, the temperatures were not as hot as the previous days. But it brought a lot of moisture, and therefore high humidity with it. After about half of a mile, I turned around to get back to the trail head. I have to come back, when the temperatures are cooler, again. But I enjoyed to capture some photos along the trail, which I’ll post here below:
Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii)
Sturgeon Moon, Grain Moon, Green Corn Moon, Red Moon
The grain ripens in the fields and the sturgeons become plentiful in the lakes. The Moon takes on a red hue from the Summer haze. It is the beginning of the harvest season and the time to begin preparing for Winter.
Tomorrow we suppose to get a break from those three digits, hot and dry days. Hopefully, the storm won’t miss us. Because, the soil needs water. But we definitely will appreciate the “cold front” in the mid 90s (34ºC). During today’s afternoon and evening, we could watch the clouds coming into DFW. It is always fascinating to see the clouds. They look like mountains, we don’t have in the prairie.
In May, I posted about a young Fox Squirrel. Back then, we still named it “Baby”. Sara insisted, that we name the squirrel “Chippy”. Chippy loves to come for lunch and dinner in our yard. Zoey, our new dog, is going bonkers, when Chippy sits in one of our trees or on the back patio. Chippy doesn’t seem to be bothered, as long as Zoey stays behind the patio door.
