A mid summer walk, and I can't wait.
It was a beautiful day here in New England. We just had a bout with summer and today was the refreshing change that will be with us for a few days.
On such a day we decided to take a woodland walk and enjoy the free natural show now showing. The walk had a beautiful little stream that wound its way through hardwood and hemlock woods. There were birds about as well as a few woodchucks that seemed to play hide and seek with us.
Several fields were in the mix and they offered flowers of various colors and sizes. One of the fields was quite large and for the eye to take in the beauty was difficult. This is a nice photo and is now my screen saver, but it was much more brilliant in person.
Near an old barn were these flowers swaying in the breeze. When I saw them I thought of a male brook trout in Autumn.
I plan to fish here come mid October. These are some of the flies that will attempt to persuade a brook trout or two. I'm like a kid and I can't wait.
