I was on a geocache with my son but I forgot to wear my old walking shoes. We’ve had a lot of rain in our area and it had rained again just before we went out to find this particular cache. I didn’t want to walk half a mile through very wet areas with my “good” shoes, so I lingered near the car while he went to find it. While I waited I noticed the teasels that were growing along the road. I hadn’t noticed teasels in the last few years, but I think that this year they are bigger than usual.
It brought back memories. When I was teaching third grade, I collected enough teasels to share with my class and we used them to make interesting art projects. That seems so long ago now. —Well, it was a long time ago. I have been retired for more than 15 years. But the teasels memory is a pleasant one for me.
I didn’t not pick any of these teasels. I just took the picture of them.
