I was invited to participate in a weekly travel challenge, similar to the weekly photo challenge, in which bloggers make photographs related to a specific theme. This week’s theme, in celebration of autumn, is foliage.
Indiana has suffered from a drought for much of the summer so the plants are a little confused. Young trees have started blossoming tiny white flowers. These yellow flowers grow tangled in a hedge along the bike path. I had never noticed them before.
I used to live in central Wisconsin. My parents were househunting just after my father was offered the job. They bought our house, a nondescript grey ranch on a hill, because it had a picture window on the front and one on the back. They could see straight through to the yellow, red and orange hills across town. Indiana autumn pales in comparaison to Wisconsin.
Morning on the bike path. Indiana is a generally bicycle-friendly state. The trail I usually follow is paralleled by a highway on one side and a sorghum field on the other.
