A continuation of the photos from Friday!
It's a long walk down to the river for Tristan now, but he was happy to get there and take a dip. The water is VERY low, as you can see from all the aquatic plant growth.
I found this whacky bug on some wild yarrow. Anyone know what it is? I haven't had a chance to look it up yet!
I am not 100% certain but I think this is Heal-all (prunella vulgaris.)
The Beaudette River is incredibly dry. Sometimes you can kayak here. Not now!
Duckweed and other plants are multiplying rapidly in the newly-formed shallows.
But there are still some spots deep enough for a doggy dip!
I love it down here. I just wish there weren't so many mosquitoes, deerfly and blackfly. We have dreams of putting some sort of gazebo near the river, but it would have to be moveable, since this river breaks its banks and floods our back pasture every spring.
Arrowhead, but I'm not sure which variety.
I think this is a Green frog.
A deceased crayfish!
Another Green frog looking very black.
The ever-intrepid Sophie.
Lots of plant growth!
The Green frog again!
Tristan looooves the water.
Blue or False vervain (verbena hastata.)
Happy Sunday! I'm off to check on my bees.
