Corn Maze

We managed to get to the corn maze again this year. We did daytime. It was really windy, but it was still really fun. This is what the maze looked like: Alex touching the “udders.” Oh Alex. Most of our group. Somehow Ed got cut out and you can’t really see Stacy. D’oh!


Pumpkin Patch

Pics from our local pumpkin patch from back in October.


Glendening Nature Preserve

Sadly we only got to Glendening Nature Preserve once this fall – for some reason fall seems to always be busy, and we just didn’t get over there are often as we did last year. But when we did get there, we had a ton of butterflies, so we definitely made up for it!


Brookside Gardens

A beautiful afternoon, and we were in the area, so Doug and I spent an hour or two at Brookside Gardens over near Silver Spring. Spot the butterfly: They have a memorial for the victims of the DC sniper. These rainbow colored echinacea are so beautiful.


Pumpkin Patch again

We went back to the pumpkin patch a second time to actually get pumpkins (rather than to look for butterflies with friends) (cause that is a thing we do apparently):


Corn Maze

This year we decided to do the corn maze at night, just to be different. We got there before dark so we could get food and enjoy a bit of the weather. It was super pretty! We got a group selfie: Craig took this one: Ah, there we go! With my new Norwegian lua (hat): We had these two small … Continue Reading →


Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin Patch after we tromped around Glendening Wildlife Preserve with friends. Sheep!


Glendening Nature Preserve ^5

We had yet another beautiful fall day in early October, while our friend Conley was in town, so our friend Tim asked if we wanted to go for a hike at Glendening. We did! Conley and Doug had just done the Army 10 Miler in DC, but walking is good for the legs post race. We tried not to go … Continue Reading →


Brookside Gardens

We had a beautiful mid-September day and I just couldn’t stand to be inside anymore! So I left work a little early and headed over to Brookside Gardens, somewhere I’d been wanting to get back to. It’s not super far from work, but I knew I’d be facing Beltway rush hour traffic to get home. Still worth it! I didn’t … Continue Reading →


Glendening Nature Preserve Redux Cubed

Another beautiful weekend in September, another long 4 mile loop at Glendening Nature Preserve! We stopped at the Butterfly Garden of course! A common checkered skipper: A sleepy orange sulphur: A common buckeye: A sleepy orange sulphur: A pearl crescent, I think: And a tiny frog!


Glendening Nature Preserve Redux Redux

Doug and I did another 4 mile or so loop over at Glendening Nature Preserve back in early September. Not much in the way of butterflies, but we checked out the boardwalk they have into the marshy area that gives you a view of the South Fork of Old Galloway Creek, off the Patuxent River. Here are a couple pics. … Continue Reading →


Glendening Nature Preserve Redux

Doug and I went back to Glendending Nature Preserve to get in a nice long hike, which we did, and this time we saw a couple different butterflies at the butterfly garden – a Nokomis Fritillary, and a black Swallowtail. At the start of our hike, we saw this guy across the path: Also this: Also two really impressive spider … Continue Reading →
