And I failed. I could not find the bluebells. Had I imagined them? Is CR Biker seeing images of bluebells that are not there? Hmmm. Have to check on how tight my helmet is …
Anyway, despite the lack of bluebells, and even though it was a cool, breezy, cloudy morning, it was a fine ride. I planned to head north, but was stopped by utility work in Robins, so headed back south and rode the Lindale-Boyson-Krumboltz trail route instead.
I took a fair number of flower photos, most along the Cedar Valley Nature Trail early in the ride, a few later. Wild phlox are in bloom, honeysuckles perfume the air, irises are flowering in many yards—it was a fine day to bike and view flowers.
Even if I missed the bluebells.
|Willow seeds--look a bit like flowers.|
|White and pink honeysuckle.|
|Closer look at pink honeysuckle.|
|The scene along the Cedar Valley Nature Trail--I got sprinkled on, but never seriously rained on.|
|Phlox. Why does it grow all over the trail but won't in my gardens?|
|A cluster of irises in a front yard along Council Street.|
|I like phlox, which are largely blue flowers, but come in white and purple, too.|
|Matt, have you bred sterile dandelions yet? And when you get rich off of them, remember they were my idea first.|
