#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
We walk on the other side of the Charles River today on a Charleslink trail we haven't walked since the beginning of summer. There is so much beauty, so many surprises this morning. I've passed this singular Indian Cucumber on the trail before, in May or June, perhaps, when it was in bloom, and it was stunning then, as now. I'm looking for it, but it finds me, stops me in my tracks - the purple berry shines like a jewel springing off a brilliant ruby setting.
What a morning ramble in the meadows and woods cheerfully changing into September gold: a girlish black eyed Susan is dressed in a puffy yellow skirt. Soon after our walk, sitting at my computer, Charlie worries my knee with his nose, and I look outside; the sky darkens, the rain falls on the field in sheets. We had gone out early and caught the bright best weather for a late summer day.
