My bike kind of self-destructed on me in the middle of a ride today so I took these pictures while I was walking back to the house to get the truck to pick up the bike. Dumb old bike, one wheel stopped turning all of a sudden. It didn’t yield to my overwhelming mechanical know-how, which consisted of laying the bike down on its side, attempting to manually turn the wheel, and then staring at it for a while as I thought about how I didn’t even know how much I didn’t know about why the wheel wasn’t turning. Ohhhh, well.
Along the side of the road, in the weeds right up against the cornfield, I found what looks to be some asparagus, obviously gone to seed. Kind of purdy. Guessing it drifted in from the nearby farmstead/

It rained today. I am not even kidding. Here are some of the raindrops lingering on the grass in the ditch.
While I was walking back to the house, I spied a small patch of corn that was short enough that I could easily take a picture of the tassel. Hurray! They’re so nice and delicate.
Tall bellflower at the roadside. What a nice wildflower.
