the everlivin' gall

Several goldenrod plants were so blemished I noted on my walk today. Seems there are parasitic critters who enjoy a bit of boring and breeding, I'm thinking Gnoremoschema gallaesolidagnis. I'll inspect further tomorrow.
But hey! Good news citizens! There are some days that are so deliciously exquisite in their simple beauty. Today was such a day for me. Quiet, lovely, relatively productive but with a large helping of free time to wander and ponder and sing Lou Reed's 'Perfect Day'.
What a great day!

I'm so glad you had such a nice day, Sometimes I find myself getting so wrapped up in the many things that are always going on that I forget to stop and ponder Mother nature's beauty. I will make sure and take a good look at it today though.

If you ever get a chance to read Jackie Clay's blog -

she always inspires me, her life has been so very hard yet she always seems to see the positive in things. She is my hero.

Have another great day, I know I will.
