Last Friday was a beautiful, fall-like day here in Mathews. A Thursday evening thunderstorm gave way to cool, crisp, sunny weather.
On Saturday, when Chesapeake Bay Son had to run in a cross country invitational meet which meant being outside all day long, it rained.
Yesterday it rained and rained and rained some more.
My mood as I write this mirrors the weather of the past two days: foul,
To force myself to be a little more cheerful, I thought I'd post these pictures of bright yellow wildflowers which are growing all over the place now, particularly on the side of the roadways and along the edges of the soybean fields.
Here's hoping the week is as bright and cheerful as these flowers.
