The rain provided some different views of the countryside and up close scenes so we stopped quite often to try to capture the sights of the day. Click on the images to see the close-up effects of the rain.
A new flower for me… at the edge of a swamp…non-invasive Tufted Loosestrife:
Has M. Monet been here?
I am now convinced that Reddy Fox trails along the shoulders of roadways and feasts on both Snapping and Blanding’s Turtle eggs.
I had an interesting chat with a neighbour here and learned that the gentleman left that house in 1982/3 after being born there. He now lives nearby but no longer farms the land. The last remaining farmer in the area cuts wild hay from that property for his cow/calf operation but all of the farms are growing over.
Although the storm clouds remained menacing, we got some nice calm weather from time to time.
This snowshoe (judging by the size of its hind feet) stopped to lick a bit of salty mud from the roadway.
On the A. E. Hitchcock movie set?
Twin Rivers is looking quite summery now.
So is Big Lake!
More rain is forecast for Sunday. Wind also giving yet another opportunity for photographers.
Can you email me the picture where you say “Has Monet been here?” I love it. I’ll try to print it…Happy father’s day. Tx Ouisie email@example.com
