So on a walk to see the early Woodland wildflowers were two females and myself. We were on a trail in Lake Louise state Park located in southeastern Minnesota. On the trail I had is Lily Barb and my rescue dog. Following behind is myself and an unnamed former teaching colleague of mine who also happens to be a long time widow. It's my first date and more than 50 some years since........... needless to say I'm a little out of practice and probably maybe especially on dating protocol. Spotting a small patch of wild Phlox I say"can I take your picture in front of those beautiful flowers?"
"NO!!!!!" is the answer. Oooops. I goofed. Handing her my point-and-shoot camera she had no problem taking my picture among beautiful flowers
