I thought I'd take you along on our Sunday walk in the park. This park is called Natirar, and is the former estate of socialite Kate Macy Ladd. You can just see a peek of the mansion through the trees at the top of the hill.
There is a walk through the trees that follows the path of a pretty brook. Sunday was very warm here -- in the 90's -- and the water looked very inviting.
This photo was taken a little further up the path, where the water was calm and reflective.
The grass and the rocks at the edge of the water were dotted with wild violets.
We are supposed to be getting a few more really hot days before the weather moderates a little. It feels sort of odd to be seeing traditional spring flowers like violets and bloodroot when the temperature is in the 90's. I'll be happy to get back to real spring. :)
