On a walk yesterday by a serene seaside park, snapping shots of some appealing looking trees. Afterwards a woman comes up to me, very energetic, and says she noticed me taking photos and was it of poison ivy because she takes photos of it and goes to city hall to demand they rid the area of such danger etc and would I want to join her in her safety campaign ... Horribly cheerful to boot. Masks all sorts of sins, the relentlessly cheery. Ah well, I extricated myself and found some rose hips - now they are something to be cheery about!

Rose hips say summer to me
