Dog Walk Discoveries (July and August, 2017)
I happened to walk by just when a ray of morning sun hit this sign.
And another optimistic message from beyond: Welcome to Glory Camp! Made me think of a song we sang at church camp when I was a kid. I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun...Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me. (And if you get that song stuck in your head all day like I did, remember I'm just spreadin' the joy.)
I walked by this tent nearly every day for two weeks. A bigger, ordinary tent was across the yard. I couldn't get both into the picture, but this crooked little circus tent, way off to the side, always amused me.
Ripped art on a utility box.
Don't know what happened as I took this picture,
but in all likelihood this image is more interesting than the one I intended.
Dead vines, bright light.
Now that is an attention-seeking shadow.
And on a much smaller scale, so is this: a tiny leaf with a swan shadow.
A living tree that's mostly hollow at the base. (Crosby Farm Regional Park in St. Paul)
Another survivor here. (Fort Snelling State Park trail along the Minnesota River)
Such a pretty mystery...
I feel like there should be a miniature horse beneath this dwarf maple tree.
What fairy tale is this?
Yes, I am strange enough to find beauty in a cracker covered in ants.
Just be glad I didn't share the video.
Maybe that Cheese Nip was a pattern, teaching ants about straight lines.
Always a good idea to end with flowers.
