gorgeous morning- first time i've heard the bullfrogs this year. lots of orioles and a quail sitting right by the trail who didnt move as we walked by.

 fleabane added to the wildflower procession

great walk. strange conversation with 2 women with 3 dogs who asked me if we were on an on leash trail when they saw me leash up & get off to the side. they were gathering dogs when they asked, but when i said no they quit doing that. so i asked them not to let their dogs run up, explainin that mine play rough & will take people out at the knees running around. and i am not going to try to hold onto them if someone is not going to control their dog. one woman said something about not knowing why people didn't want the dogs to meet. you know what, it doesn't matter why. if someone asks, keep your dog away. it's pretty easy.

why, oh why do i never remeber to say "it's off leash under control, so if someone asks for a dog not to approach them, the dog should be controlled"?

regardless, the women were nice enough, no harm, i just wish i could find a better way to articulate.

in chicago now, be fun to see what's new when we get back out on friday. happy trails!
