Here’s one to match my current favorite picture of Bowpi…

Strawberry shiba forever
Photo taken 20 April 2011

We went back to this dog park yesterday. While patches are still blanketed in red, many of the blossoms have already started to fade. Whatever they are, they’re one of the most stunning local wildflowers, for sure. And they’re soon to be replaced by some nasty pricklers that are already standing at attention.

Maybe that’s why this park becomes so infested with weeds during the summer months… They start to grow when the wildflowers are at full bloom, and the park groundskeepers don’t have the heart to raze it all down.

Sneaky weeds, lying in wait. Getting ready to assault my shiba’s immune system…
