Wildflowers of summer (11)

As summer draws to a close, blooms of the wildflowers have almost completed; I have only a few more photos of this year’s blooms left to post.

For the next couple of weeks my posting will likely be sporadic and/or brief. Our daughter will be here for a visit and we have a lot of plans, many of which involve trekking into the beautiful back country of Montana. I’m sure there will be many photos to be posted later as a result of those trips, perhaps including some new blooms.

I hope there’s room for one more.

Last night it rained…

Last evening on the river at around half past eight I brought about a pound and a half of brightly colored Rainbow trout to my net and saved it for tonight’s dinner; such a thrill using an ultra-light fly rod and a fly I tied myself.

Then, during the night, it rained and an Evening Primrose chose to bloom.

Isn’t summer magnificent?
