#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
An early ferry, a drive home, a walk with the dogs in the rain by the river. A short trip off island today. First, I pass the grapevine at the river's edge, spreading wildly all along the bank, running tendrils across the trail. Then, I spy the buttonbush in full bloom at the soggy edge of the Charles, a delightful surprise to come home to. Even in the downpour, I want to walk so much farther into the woods and meadows. I want to be surprised, again and again, with the vibrant weeds and wildflowers of New England summer. I am under the spell of the buttonbush, this morning, such a playful, gorgeous wonderful plant. Too soon I am out of time and must return home.
