Happy Monday to you on this first day of July! Do you like coneflowers? Mine have just started blooming in earnest the last few days. I have just, in recent years, begun to appreciate this beautiful flower. Don't know why I overlooked it for so many years. We found so many blooming along the right-of-ways on our trip to the southern part of the state over a week ago. We even passed a small field covered in them. I was driving and didn't get photos, but I can tell you they were just beautiful. I always think of the things that I should have taken time to see or snap after we return from a trip. Tell me that I'm not the only one to do this!
This will be a busy week for me and I will be taking another blog break. I don't think I've mentioned it before, but I've somehow hurt my right shoulder and have had trouble using my arm. It seems to be a tad bit better today, but I have really been neglecting some things so I feel I better stay off the computer for a while. I actually considered taking the whole summer off, but I just can't seem to stay away from blogland that long! I need to complete my series of posts on the Wilder Home in Mansfield, so I may sneak in a post on that at some point. If not, it will be one of the first things I'll do when I get back. Have a wonderful week and have fun celebrating our nation's birthday on July 4th!!
