Such a Beautiful Day

Our View From Iowa

by Melanie and Jim

The weather changes a lot in Iowa. It is one of the features of our state we like. Now and then, we enjoy some of the most splendid and beautiful days. It was like that recently with absolutely clear skies, very light breeze, and 72˚F. We changed clothes and drove a few miles to a favorite place, FW Kent County Park. We hiked around the central lake and then around a smaller pond in the northeast corner. Total distance was about 2 miles. Not far. But, it was a beautiful day. Not much needs to be said. The pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!

  1. Not till now had I heard of sawtooth sunflowers, whose scientific name I see is Helianthus grosseserratus. The species part, which means big-toothed, is a rough translation of the common name, and it’s interesting the way the translator stuck an e between the double s and the single s to keep from having a triple s.
