At The End of August

Camphorweed (Pluchea odorata)

Now that we are getting to the end of August, Summer comes to an end as well. Tomorrow begins the meteorological Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. My favorite season of the year will arrive soon. Even when it takes another six to eight weeks before Autumn shows the first signs here in North Texas, I’m so ready to celebrate the colorful and cooler season with apples, pumpkins, tea, candles and Harvest/Halloween decor. The tent will come back out for camping weekends. Gardening will be so much more fun, when it is not so warm anymore. And we can take the dogs out for a walk and in the doggy park more often, again. Oh, do I love Autumn!

The Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail In August (1)

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:
