phlox (w/crazy color curve)
The top two images were taken Mother's Day. Luke and Tria live in Mount Horeb and had us over for brunch. (Mmm, waffles...) The area is full of gentle hills. Lots of Swiss and Norwegians immigrated here because it reminded them of their homeland. The closer you get to the Mississippi, the more beautiful it gets. We have the glaciers to thank.
We're a bit flatter in the center, and the soil is less rocky. More hay and corn, less sheep and, um, cliff diving. But not lacking in gorgeous views. These two barns and the ditches full of wild phlox were taken only a few minutes from our house. I was returning from town with my trunk full of flowers! All of which are planted now. So, there'll be plenty to share in the weeks ahead.
If I can bring myself to sit here and fart around.
