I Saw Sunday Week 49
For I Saw Sunday: Week 49
My daughter and I visited a place called Fonferick Glen, simply out of curiosity. It is a very small county park, located about twenty minutes from my home. Last week, I showed you images of the cloud action while we were there. This week I’ll show you a bit of what was under those clouds.
The park is located in a farmer’s field and the small parking lot is directly across from the farm house and working barn. Signs guide the visitor to a path which begins alongside these Hollyhocks. I haven’t seen these flowers for years. They were favorites of my mother’s. Although the path curves across uneven farm field, it is obviously mown for easy access, but the grasses and other field growth remain beside it.
The fence, in the picture above, runs along a very steep and rocky drop-off. There are no benches or tables, so yours truly sat on the ground, while her more adventuresome daughter traveled down a not so well tended path to a barely wet river bed that lies between rock walls below the fence.
This is the rock structure that forms the upper level of a thirty foot falls that slowly trickles down to the stony river bed.
On her way back up, my daughter caught a flash of yellow and thought she might be able to capture one of the very camera shy butterflies that inhabit this area. Instead, she captured this beautiful little feathered friend.
