A nice meal of striped bass. They are good eating, plus a lot of fun to catch. My title used to be a recording for the phone, " This is the OOTP summer home, summer here, summer not." This year as summer welcomes us it has been hard to tell where spring left off. Morbid hot has been all over, but the rains continue. Rivers are going over their banks and people getting lost in the waters. I was headed to a lake this weekend, but may have had to fish in a parking area I usually park in. Yesterday instead of meeting on the lake, my kids and grandkids joined me for lunch at a restaurant and we had a great time just being together and enjoying a huge meal. Stories flowed as the waters ebbed and I was glad all made it home safely. We had five inches of rain at my home yesterday. I hope you are all playing safe this summer.

Around the yard at the farm. I have a lot of clematis in bloom and enjoy their exotic blooms.
Brown Eyed Susan Vine
A new solar lighthouse, the light spins around and keeps ships from crashing on my prairie lawn.
At the cathedral in St. Paul, IA, this tiny town of less than 200 has a unique church. I would like to know more about this statue below.
Out on the prairie
With lots of new bloom
Plants crowding in
But there is always room.
