Spring

This is the Life

This is the Life

We hunkered down on corner five at Road America and were once again treated to the sights, sounds and smells  of uniquely crafted sports cars and racers.  Screaming engines.  Aromatic high test racing fuel.  The smell of hot brake pads.  Thunderous flaming exhausts.  Who cares if there’s a bit of chill in the air. Life is good.

The calendar says spring . . .

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.

Stapler

While waiting in the checkout line, we spotted a clerk stapling cardboard flats used like trays to carry flowers home from the greenhouse.

As requested by Val . . . a second image with the person in focus 🙂


Large

On top of the viewing tower at Collens Marsh by Reedsville, Wisconsin is a large Osprey nest. Here is a link to the live video camera. The eggs are expected to hatch between the 21st and 31st of May.

The fragile seeds of dandelions will soon threaten the rest of our yard.  We must commit dandycide!
