Today's not much of a walk, report: 042020

This is a walk to my driveway. That starts about 12' from the front door and extends about another 50' out to the street. That's about as far in front of the house as I honestly feel like walking to lately, although I have ventured as far as curbside onto the street generally to take out garbage cans or to at least make some effort at controlling weeds etc., along the curb strip. Today marks 52 days of self-quarantine during the covid-19 pandemic.

I have driven out the driveway only 6 times in those 52 days and I only got out of the car once. That was for the last walk report. There's been a lot of rain during this period. With that and wildflower seed that had blown into the cracks of the aged asphalt driveway, has borne weeds but mostly ox-eye daisies (Leucanthemum vulgare) and a few African daisies (Dimorphotheca sinuata). This is a second growth of these flowers on the property this season. There are lots of pictures mostly to give you an idea of just how many flowers are growing out of the cracks, nooks and crannies

Add a little elegant clarkia (Clarkia unguiculata)

Stay home and stay safe.
