Timing and Order

This little critter arrives
just when the birds have finished feeding
 Nibbles around for a few minutes
and then off to begin the day.
Wait, break time already?

May has arrived

Each day this week
a little more color
Working its way
to the first day of May
I knew a chubby little Bumblebee
couldn't pass it up.
It was in such a frenzy
that even the motion setting on the camera
couldn't slow it down.

An afternoon at Moraine State Park

 Many of the nature photos I share
are taken at Moraine State Park.
This park was established in the early 1970s
when a large area was flooded creating a recreational lake.
The lake is located in the same area as a glacial lake
from the Ice Age.
 While the RG was fishing from shore
Lucy and I went exploring and
     came upon this wild daffodil.
But wait maybe not so wild
Then I spied this moss covered rock and
when I moved in for a photo I noticed
a hole with what appeared to be the corner
of something manmade below the surface.
The RG explained that it appeared to be
part of a foundation.
Then I understood.
This area was once a small rural village
that no longer exists due to the flooding for the lake.
Good in everything bad.
Due to its location high on a hillside
the village church remains.
It continues to be an active congregation. 
They broadcast their services to the outdoors.
The RG and I enjoy the gospel music
when we are on the lake fishing.

A Handmade Gift

A quilt in the windmill pattern.
A handmade gift from my mother long ago 

 The RG claims it and says she made it for her favorite son-in-law.
(he was her only son-in-law)
 Fun to change the angle
and go from plain blue windmill to print windmill.

Oh, and he was her favorite son-in-law.
