Nature Walk: September 20-27

Today I went for a walk around the Reservoir with my mom and brother (they were visiting for parents weekend). At the very start of the walk we saw a pretty purple flower amongst a sea of uncut grass. It was a cool seventy degrees and a nice sunny day. The walk itself was particularly enjoyable and relaxing. While walking the perimeter I saw a large group of ducks playing at the edge of the water and a butterfly pollinating a yellow flower. Besides that, while walking I found a little dirt path that led back into a wooded area. I went down the path and ended up climbing a tree with my little brother. Once we were finished we continued walking where we came across two different types of berries (pokeberries and Ampelopsis berries). All in all the walk was very interesting and enjoyable.
