More pictures around town... before the impending icestorm

Saturday, April 14, 2018

I thought I would take advantage of the Spring-like weather and take you on another walk with the Cooper-dog and myself... I just have a few pictures, hopefully they all load.

This little flower was hiding in the brush in a wooded area we walk by daily...

This creekside road is one of Cooper-dog's favorite roads to walk along... winding, tree-lined, and a number of houses along it have dogs, so there are interesting smells for him to explore. Of course, I just think it's pretty.

Don Reinhoudt Jr was officially the World's Strongest Man for a year or two... I remember in grade school he would come and give demonstrations and do "Feats of Strength"... it was pretty miraculous seeming to a six or seven year old! There is a waterfall that drops under the bridge named after him and his father. Just before I took this picture I was watching a fisherman wade out into the creek above the falls to try his luck... I think cold water fishing cannot be for the faint of heart!

I don't know if you can see the cool spreading branches of the gate protecting this hayfield... in a residential neighborhood... lol... that is the little village I live in... a mix of agricultural (and a little bit of redneck) and suburban (and a touch of professional/collegiate)

I don't know what these sweet, little, white flowers are, but they catch my eye every time we pass them.

Throughout the village there are these random square, stone blocks... they are the original mounting blocks the residents used to use, back in the days of horse and buggy... They pop up by the side of the roads all over town... and when they widened the main roads the Village politicians/DPW (or somebody) went to the trouble of moving all of them instead of removing them completely... and those blocks are HEAVY!

Now that we have walked the first 4 miles of the day, and the wind is blowing in, and the potential for rain and ice is rising hourly I am going to cherish these Spring-seeming images, and hope the flowers survive the coming storm (and that the creek doesn't flood!)...

I hope ya'll are having a good weekend whatever your weather conditions!
