We did a little shopping in the morning. Did a little yard work around midday. Took a little trip to Hubbard Valley Park (Medina County Park System) this afternoon. The walk on the park's trails, through woods and meadows and around a lake, were beautiful. I found, however, that enjoying and photographing a beautiful sight at home was every bit as rewarding as what I had seen in the wild. I finally got around to photographing my favorite of the summer's "volunteer" sunflowers. That beauty grew at the end of our sidewalk and brings a smile to my face daily when I see it there. Backlit by the late-day sun, it was all the more memorable this afternoon.
