Wild Flowers




































Our 4th of July tradition is to spend the weekend in my college town of Menomonie, WI. And one thing is for sure. I didn't spend any time enjoying the simple pleasures of wild flowers while I was in school. I didn't even do much painting. My major was graphic waste of time design. I drank way too much and hardly held a paintbrush. But Stout did teach me how to take a photo. And when I should have been studying for WWII class, I was probably in the dark room. Yes, dark room not digital room.


We had a wonderful time over the weekend. We spotted 13 different kinds of birds on the Red Cedar trail. Including a young eagle. We foraged for Black Raspberries. And we enjoyed a peaceful hike at Hoffman Hills. That's where I took these wild flower photos. We also might have done just a little bit of drinking. But only for old time's sake!

Great shots of the wildflowers Sharon, each one is beautiful. Glad I'm not the only one who remembers darkrooms.

Great flower pictures. I was up in the High Country yesterday and got a few pictures, but the wildflowers are not out just yet, other than some columbine and foxglove. I'll send you my address in a private email, so THANKS!!

Most of my memories of dark rooms are from Alma Center Year Book and not pleasant. Go Hornets!
