By the pond

By the pond

This was taken last Saturday. Or maybe it was last Sunday; either way, last weekend was gorgeous. Now it’s grey and blustery, and none of us are wearing short sleeves, nor have we taken off our shoes and socks to wade in the pond at the Como Pavilion.

I intend to try to get back into my Saturday Evening Posts, drawing your attention to things I’ve come across throughout the Interwebz and hope you will find as interesting as I did, but I have collected so many of them in the last several weeks that it’s going to take me some time to sort through them and figure out which ones are really worth passing along. ‘Til then, enjoy this photo of a sunny Saturday. (Or, more likely, Sunday).

The Great Minnesota Get-Together

This is me going for a walk with the dogs.
(The water is for them, by the way).

These are some of the things I’ve typically seen in the last few walks:

Hibiscus (? maybe?)


This is what I saw yesterday:

Buffalo and cow on my walk

There’s a guy a couple blocks from me who has a giant bull in his back yard. Sometimes it’s accompanied by a giant cow (the one seen above) in his front yard. Once somebody stole the black steer for several months (as one does). The steer has now been found, and is currently residing at Gabe’s, where he advertises angus burgers for $2.99, which seems, well, just wrong.

Yesterday was the first day, however, that I’ve ever seen the cow with a buffalo. Today is the first day of the state fair. Coincidence? I think not.

I love my neighborhood.
