Rain, Rain, Go Away



A couple of love pictures




Lots of rain has left high water all summer in many areas.

Leopard Frogs really blend into the prairie, one is obvious on the left, but there are two more on the right. Would you hold still please?

Would You Look At That

At this overlook many place a lock , I guess to secure their relationship. Many write their name and date on the lock.



A joke was we had a stray who came and always stayed for a few days. He met his fate one day getting ran over and we always said we would get a replacement and name him Earl. I said hello to this Earl, but he didn't want to let me close. 
An art project 

I made these tissue flowers painting the petals and attaching them with florist tape on a wire. I fringed a strip of black and white paper to make my centers, putting it on first.

Old Glory
The male Monarch has a tiny scent gland on the 2nd strip from the bottom in the middle of the stripe.
A gentle prairie breeze
Blows across the land
And toward where I stand
Sharing love,faith and happiness 
To all who listened.

Sunday Stroll: Get The Net, I Got A Big One

Baby woodpecker with parent

It once was a palace, sad to be vacant

Really foggy this morning with cool temperatures



This isn't going to fit in my net

Lovely Thoughts And Memories

A friend calls and said stop by I have something for you. I got there with a folded paper with my name. I see the cake and my eyes marvel at the elegance of a childhood memory we had just discussed, Hershey Syrup Brownies. Still warm I wish they were home and take the pan. I get a call the next day and they ask why I didn't take my recipe with my name on it and stole the dessert instead. Ooops...... and here I thought it all was for me. I returned quickly with three pieces missing.

Red-winged Blackbirds are some of the first to leave signaling fall is near.











See the frog?
