Riley & the tall grass.
The area behind our house, where we walk Riley every day, is in dire need of being mowed and landscaped. Because that area used to be railroad tracks, it is technically Federal/County property- which means the County is responsible for maintaining it. They are usually pretty consistent with making sure that area is mowed but thanks to the crazy amounts of rain that we've been having lately, it's growing out of control back there. Sometimes I feel like we're in this crazy grass jungle. The grass is getting so tall that there are times where I can barely see Riley when she's in the thick of it. Some of the extra-tall grass has developed these little tiny grass flowers on the tips and Riley has developed a habit where she has to sniff every single one that she walks by. It's really cute to see her do it and just melts my heart. But then again, almost everything Riley does is cute ;)
