The indians refered to this time of the calendar as the month of Wild Roses. It is aptly named as the river bottoms are alive with the beauty and scent of these thorny but beautiful flowers. My yard is certainly adorned with these beauties.
My river has dropped the last few days and I can now even see underwater my favorite rock for sitting on as I watch river life flow by and happen. By now that is possible but gonna be a while yet this year.
