Morning walk

The oldest had spent the night with his grandparents so my husband and I loaded up the baby and went for a walk this morning on the Rails to Trails path. 

Blue Jay feather.

Male Monarch Butterfly.

Identified as a Splendid Earth Boring Beetle.

His (?) underside was a bright metallic blue.

The rains had washed some slag glass free from the old railroad bed.  These were a by-product of the iron furnaces in the 1800's. They're now decorating our bird bath.


  1. We have Will overnight this Saturday, mummy and daddy are getting some couple time together before baby arrives in December.

    1. That's so nice of you to do for mom, dad and Will. I'm sure Will loves this time with the two of you.
