FROM READERS: A stroll at the park in the late afternoon

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 | 12:40 p.m. CST
Missourian reader John Hall shares photos from his most recent trip to the park with his beloved dogs.

John Hall frequently photographs his mid-Missouri surroundings, and he has been sharing his images with the Missourian for several years.

One of the most persistent of all plant life to hang on in cold weather is the miniature hollyhock.  

There isn't any way to rid the yard of these things once they arrive.  You can hoe, poison, curse (in a nice way) and heap all manner of havoc on them and like cockroaches, they will survive.

Saturday football got boring pretty quickly and one of the English Cockers begged to go for a ride.  I drove a couple of the dogs down the street to a park where we drove around in circles for about 15 minutes.

 These photos were snapped of the late afternoon making a gallant but futile attempt to ward off impending nightfall.

This story is part of a section of the Missourian called From Readers, which is dedicated to your voices and your stories. We hope you'll consider sharing. Here's how.
