Continuing our walk, I met this young lady and as she could see that I was so taken with her 'back-to-front backpack' that she stopped to have a chat. There was a compartment - air holes - and inside was her cat lying down very comfortably. I had never seen one of these before but perhaps if you have a furry-family member, maybe you have. I found a similar one here on Amazon.
A great way of taking her cat along and not have to worry about her while she was away. Not sure it would be a good idea when the weather got hot and humid, but she had so much love for her cat that I doubt she would do that. Such a nice young lady and one of those pleasant interludes you get on walks occasionally.
We return to our walk by Bull Run, and found the Spring Beauty and Wild Violets, which I mentioned more descriptively here in my post from a previous visit to Green Spring Gardens. These violets are a darker purple.
