The beautiful Tulip Polar trees are flowering.
Took this picture with my phone at work last week. It’s an Osprey nest. One of the Osprey flew off right as I snapped the photo. You can see him to the bottom left of the nest. The Osprey or fish hawk as they are sometimes called can have a wing span of 71 inches. They’re pretty awesome. My phone has a pretty bad zoom on it, but wanted to share the picture with you even though it’s a little fuzzy. 🙂 You can click the photo, then click again to enlarge for a little better look.

We were in the deep freeze last week with -5 F temps and -25 wind chill. Then Saturday we had a lovely warm up. It got up to 55 degrees. I thought that was fantastic, but then yesterday it made it to 65 degrees with sunny skies. So I had to take advantage and take a long, lovely walk. Spent two hours walking in nature and found this beautiful little gem. A lovely and unexpected surprise. I love covered bridges.
Photos from my last couple of walks. Colors are breathtaking this year.
Eric and I decided to take a little road trip earlier this week. We visited Holland, Indiana. Holland is a small town west of Huntingburg and home of the Holland Dairy/Prairie Farms dairy foods. Although not a lot there, they do have a very nice little park with a walking trail along the lake, a large globe and purple people eater. 😉 But the main draw for us is the windmill. We hadn’t been there since Eric was about 5 years old so it was nice to see it again. In Huntingburg we spotted the Rockford Peaches bus from the movie A League of Our Own and decided to snap a few photos. Some day soon I’ll have to go back and visit the ball park where parts of the movie were filmed. Haven’t been there for years.
My good friend, M. Jean Pike has finally taken her typewriter out of mothballs and has a new book, Frankie’s Heart, a christian romance. It’s available on Amazon Kindle now. The Paperback will be coming soon. I have a feeling this one will be different than some of my most loved books by Jean, but I don’t care. This girl could write about mud and I’d read it. She has a special gift for creating characters and worlds you can lose yourself in. I’m really looking forward to her new offering. So let’s show her some love and head over to Amazon to check out Frankie’s Heart.
