It was time for Briar to go home again.

Briar was ready and happy to be home with Claire. Briar thought it would be nice to take me on a walk at her local park. Of course I agreed. πŸ˜‰
Claire, Paula, and Briar stood in front of the Big Bluestem. I don’t think Briar thought much of the grass.
Briar posed in front of a nice patch of Coralberry. They were loaded, the berries not Briar!

    Mary you are such a crack up πŸ™‚

    1. I guess that is the peak? Maybe you could see them earlier. I don’t think here will be good. Forecast is for patchy fogπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

  2. Guess Briar was repaying you for showing her your favorite places. Right Kathy. Shes a crack up, or a cracked egg. πŸ˜‰
