Lots of the grasses were turning brown. Some kinds of flowers had bloomed and those blooms were spent and apparently not coming back. I guess their season has passed. The last time I walked along the river, yellow wildflowers dominated. Yesterday the thistles were in full bloom, the clover was still flowering and small purple flowers dominated, with just a few small yellow ones scattered here and there.
The blackberry bushes now have actual berries on them. These are small, hard, and green, but we will keep an eye on their progress. They are still in heavy bloom as well, so it seems that there may be quite a lot of them. I assume that people come out and pick them regularly as they ripen, but there are blackberry bushes everywhere around town, so I'm hoping that we will be able to get some. I am not sure when that happens around here, but since we are out and about all the time, we'll be able to monitor the situation.
When we reached the bridge by the old barrack ruin, we heard a "baaaa." and looked up and across the river to see some sheep in the field above the stone wall.
