Midsummer between spring and fall

Isabelle and I did a twenty mile bike ride and hike to the Wissahickon today in honor of her brothers sudden passing during a run in the Pyrenees this day two years ago. We saw blooming asters, surely a preview of fall!

Also Bloodroot with an illuminated fallen leaf, portending the fall while still keeping the flame of Spring alive! It’s that time of year! Yes indeed the first hints of fall are here, even in this years most crazed and disturbing turbulence of summer.
