For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: ring.
We hiked the Tunnel Creek trail yesterday, about 4 miles up and back. Much of it was in shadow at the start, with sun up in the tops of the trees. We reached areas with sun and then it followed us back down the valley. Not all the way, the end was in the dark trees and wet.
We were mushrooming. We saw many more mushrooms than ones that we knew were ok, but it was so beautiful and healing. I love to hike.
Happy Friday! And back to the Kinetic Sculpture Festival!
I took a photograph of this delightful rat and her ride:
I learn wonderful new things every day!
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: quaint.
We visited my friend Malene in Wisconsin, and she took us and her grandchildren to Nick Engelbert’s Grandview.
We may think of folk art as quaint or cute, but his art is amazing and on a grand scale. The house, the out building and a yard full of sculpture, all to explore. The house was closed so we did not go inside on this trip, but the outside is wonderous.
This is not the house. It’s just an outbuilding.
These are the arches in front of the house.
And sculptures all through the yard:
This is being restored.
Not just an elephant. It is political commentary.
Complex, humorous and my impression is certainly that this farmer/artist was a joyous worker!
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: panoply.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: smirk.
Visiting friends in Wisconsin in August, we were taken on an evening quick tour of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. There are multiple decorated statues of Bucky Badger on campus. Is the expression a smile or smirk or serious?
I’m a badger too.
