7/29 Outdoor Wednesday - #29

Here in the Hayward Lakes area one day it is only 62 degrees. Another day, it feels so hot that it feels like my brains are going to be fried. This area hasn't had a good farmer's rain since May except for the last few days. The sun would be out, it would get grey and stormy looking then it would rain. How in the whole this wildflower survived the drought is beyond me. This flower looks like a morning glory. I see them twisting around wildflowers everywhere.

My son took me on some backroads in Wisconsin. Indentation on this boulder appears to be an ancient Indian ancestor.


Here are some Cave dwellings in Wisconsin that look like those in Iran.


Look we even found some Cave paintings like in France.


We also saw a monolith in the shape of a "T" in the northwoods like in Ireland.

  1. Good morning, Joyce. Beautiful photos, as usual!!

    The flower that looks like a morning glory, may be jimson weed. We had this at the farm. It's an intoxicant. One of Georgia O'Keefe's works is a jimson weed. Though beautiful, the plant isn't so nice.

    Enjoyed this post! Happy Outdoor Wednesday!
