I went on a walk to the arboretum with my family. A lot of people made it to town for the wedding and most of them are leaving either tonight or tomorrow morning.
It was a really wonderful chance to climb trees with my cousins.
We took a lot of pictures where people are chewing on wheat stalks.
There was a giant hedge of this beautiful flower:
Which, near as I can tell is some kind of bee balm, and there was huge group of hummingbirds, which is apparently called a “charm”, a “glittering”, a “shimmer”, a “tune”, or a “bouquet”. (Names for collections or birds are *awesome*.)
(If any of you know for sure what that flower is, I’d love to know. It was chock full of honeybees and hummingbirds, and I want to ring my hypothetical yard with it.)
