Summer Flower Power

As the summer flowers bloom, we are both delighted and careful to check for ticks.  Crawling around in the grass to get photos means checking carefully afterwards.

If you’re not wearing gaiters, tuck your pant legs into your socks.  Check yourself and your buddies.   Check again before you get into your car.

Make sure your shirts and jackets are not loosely hanging all over the place.  If you have to tie a jacket around you, zip it up, roll it up and keep it tight.  You don’t want unwanted hitchhikers as you move thru brush.

Click on any photo to enlarge.  Pictured here are Leopard Lillies, a Morning Glory, a grass and a Mariposa Lilly on Mt. Tam & Clarkias blanketing the hillside like a huge pink carpet on Mori Point in Pacifica.
