Along the Road (Some More)

Mike, the builder, needed to go to Lowes this afternoon and asked if Christine and I would like to come along. Of course!
I grabbed the camera on our way out and on our way home, Mike drove us through Assaria where he turned to look at a guy's "collection" of old metal towers and an odd assortment of other "treasures". It appears that what used to be a small town grain elevator and the metal sheds around it has become a home for the man and space for his collection. (I didn't think to snap photos of this. Maybe next time.) When we got back into Lindsborg, we stopped at the small and friendly local greenhouse, then drove leisurly around town. Mike is patient and doesn't seem to mind at all when I say, "Stop! I wanna get a picture of..."


Poppies, Purple Flowers and a Yellow Iris in a Backyard in Assaria, Kansas

Gotta love poppies!


A Brightly Wrapped Tree in a Lindsborg Front Yard
