Patch of sunlit ferns Gallery Bell Today was hot and humid, so I wanted to walk in a shady location.  Despite the shade, it was still quite warm.  My new summer walking accessories include a wide brimmed hat, a small towel for wiping my face, and a bottle of water waiting for me in the car.  All got good use today. I walked the length of Quiet Cove Road and back.  It is carved into a steep, rocky, forested  hillside, which tumbles down to Lake Linganore.  The sun broke through the overhead trees occasionally, lighting up patches of ferns which grew in large patches on the forest floor.  As I walked, I could hear people enjoying the lake far below me.  They were either swimming or canoeing, but either way, I could tell they were having fun. I keep secrets from you... Mr. Frog When I returned to the Richardson home, which is part of the Frederick historic landmarks, I got out my Nikon D7100 and my macro lens to spend a little time in the yard with the roses, wood poppies, foxglove, bleeding hearts, iris, azaleas, and daisies.  The colors of the roses were especially vibrant. Quiet Cove is a great little secret, tucked away on the edge of Boyer's Mill.  Check out the Richardson Gallery when they have their open houses.  Maybe I will see you there.
