Summertime Surprises

Every week seems to bring a new surprise. After the snow decided to leave once and for all – we noticed sections around the yard have bloomed into various flowers: Bleeding Hearts, Tulips, Iris, Carnations, Crocuses and Roses.

By the end of May, I discovered a huge strawberry patch (these babies are

Last week, after being attacked by low hanging branches, my husband went out to trim the offending branches. Only instead of being random tree limbs, he realized they were fruit trees: cherries, peaches, and crabapples.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sky

We were at Patoka Lake yesterday for the annual “Thunder over the Patoka” Fourth of July fireworks show. I am a big sucker for water, sunset, and clouds for photo settings. I couldn’t decide which picture I liked better for this weeks photo challenge so I uploaded both. We all took turns deciding what the bottom cloud looked like. Everything from dinosaur to anvil was suggested. It was a great way to spend a few quality family moments.

Photo Challenge: Wildlife

It seems as if the park is truly for the birds during this rainy season in Southern Indiana.
