Crimson clover!

I need a reminder that it hasn't always been raining. A couple of weekends ago, while Benjamin was out of town, I finally had time to get pictures of the crimson clover. It was a good thing too, because it was gone by the middle of the week.

I have never seen anything like it before - we have white clover and light purple clover up in Washington, but not this brilliant clover.

This isn't a great shot - taken out of the car window while stopped at a stop light - but it gives you an idea of the way it carpeted the sides of the road. Gigantic patches. It was so incredibly lovely, while it lasted.

Now the clover is gone, and the honeysuckle is blooming. It too grows rampant on the sides of the road, climbing over the trees and bushes. Ahh.... hunny-suckle, as Pooh might say.
