Another beautiful day in the Northwoods. All of my company had departed (no, that is NOT why it was a beautiful day!) so I washed all the sheets in the house and remade beds for the next guests expected tonight. Took a hike w/ the dog and found this lily in the swamp. Mowed the lawn. I didn't stop this time to go around the large patches of yellow bird's foot trefoil, pink and white patches of clover, tiny white ringed plantain, or purple heal-all but instead cheerfully lopped off all their heads. It will only take a few days for these plants to put up new flowers and my lawn will again be full of color. After the sunset, I saw fireworks going off along the ridge. Looks like it will be another cool clear night. Perfect sleeping weather.
