The wind finally died down this evening and I got all my flowers planted. Quite a variety; hibiscus, venusta, astilbe, delphinium, fox glove, orchid frost dead nettle, inpatients, etc. Mostly perennials, next year hopefully I'll have less planting to do, leaving more time for bike riding!
Driving home from work I saw lots of bikers out; a group on LaneHogs who were going out to do the Bluff Road-Meckling loop, Melissa commuting home from work, and Dean on his recumbent headed back to Vermillion. It was neat to see so many bikers out and I knew them all!
Also today I received a packet of fun things all to do with biking; a Bike Friday catalogue, bike maps for the Lewis and Clark route and the Northern Tier route, and a new bike mirror. Sent by a friend from TDK who I visited with on this past Saturday's ride. It was like an early Christmas! My fantasy is that someday my husband and I will go on long road trips. He loves his little red Mustang convertible but won't put a bike rack on it. This is the one thing he won't compromise on, so I think I need a bike friday that will fold up and fit in the trunk. It's a nice dream but I won't be purchasing a bike friday anytime soon....but maybe someday!
