Thank you Susan for being the hostess.
















This summer it was hard to find a field of sunflowers.  I learned today that there are annual and perennial sunflowers.  The annual seeds will bloom the first year planted.   However, it will probably take perennial sunflower seeds to bloom two years.  Year after year I look for fields of sunflowers and always find them on a different rural road.   I also have noticed that something else is always planted where sunflowers were planted before.

Today is a warm, humid gray day; but these sunflowers make me smile.

Greetings and Salutations!





Instead of using a shredder sometimes we use a burning pit.  Look at how thinker items refuse to burn.

Here is a photograph of a glass of water with ice cubes sweating during the heat of summer 2017.  I think the glass is refillable.

Photo taken of an abandoned railroad trestle.  My husband, John, and I were on a back-road called Mosquito Brook Road heading toward Seeley,Wisconsin for lunch at the Sawmill Saloon.  When I saw this shot, of course we had to stop.   Here is information regarding Sawmill Saloon's menu:  http://www.seeleywis.com/sawmill-menu.  If you want to kayak, bike ride, fish, use ATV trails one can do it all  in this area.   There is a place called Lenroot Inn, Moose Lips Coffee Shop and a little gift shop besides the restaurant.  I've never stayed there, just saying.  Oh I forgot to mention there is an artist who uses a saw to make sculptures of eagles and bears and other wild animals out of wood.   It is really interesting if you haven't seen that done before.
