Same church as yesterday. Just stepped back a little. I really dislike those power lines.
It probably would have been better/easier to repair these before the new siding went on?
MN State Flower - amazing, a wild orchid that survives in winter.
"Where did he go?" Northern Harrier - formerly Marsh Hawk, hunts slowly and very low to the ground - often only at 3-6 ft. Great fun to watch.
"Who ya lookin' at?"
There are a number of these wild orchids in MN. The yellow and showy lady's slipper are pretty easy to find. However, there's a pure white, a stemless which is pink, and a Ram's-head lady's slipper which is on the endangered species list.
Wild Columbines - in the wild around MN, they only come in one color.
Have a great day!
"Mom says don't eat these...what does she know?"
It's fun to watch the hunt!
The trumpeter swan is a very large bird! Have a great day!
Medevac from the back roads...
Duck foreplay - hours of begging! ;)
No, I have a headache!
Why didn't I go south for the winter?
It take a lot of time to train them to pose! ;)
Walla Lutheran Church - New Effington SD.
Not far south of Fargo and can be seen from I-29. I really need a GPS. This jewel appears to be reasonably original.
Have a blessed day!
It's always nice to see a restored Victorian like this. A labor of love as these homes were usually not insulated. Restoration costs can be quite high!
I doubt the garage is original to the property.
A closer view...
Paternal homestead - near Barry MN.
