Pat and I were south of Homer, Michigan in Amish country. We found the kind of gravel roads we seek and it turned out to be a day of wildflowers (and a few other things). I could not get a poem out of my head as we enjoyed a very beautiful morning. The poet is Gerard Manley Hopkins. Maybe the images will speak to you in your own reflection on the beauty of the world around us.

My friend Pat posted a delightful account of the last ramble we took at https://imissmetoo.me/2017/06/11/precious-time/ . You can compare her subject matter with mine to see how we often see things differently . . . part of what makes for the joy we have in our outings.
Pat is an extraordinary friend. Our outings are usually the highlight of my weeks.
I offer one photo from that outing that I did not post because I was having trouble making it look like I felt upon seeing the new-growth trees.
