Boy, how time flies. It seems like only a moment ago that we were heading down to the Nelson Stone Barn in July. The day was hot, the skies were clear and the trees, well,
they were full of mayflies! They drip from every leaf. In fact, almost everything is occupied by at least one. It's amazing. But also gross.
Someone has a wagon wheel fetish.
Lately, it's the lady bugs that are bugging me. I tried to read a book outside the other day and was constantly digging in my shirt and pants to retrieve wayward bugs. Yuck. Lady bugs or Asian beetles are a real fall menace. But earlier this summer, it was the mayflies.
Fast forward to fall. The end of September to be exact. And the Stone Barn's last hurrah. We always hike the wilds of Maiden Rock bluff. This time, the sky was full of pelicans. I didn't capture any though. They love to graze the bluffs as they glide by.
This was the night before the blood moon.
The blood orange sun set on our rural Stone Barn Pizza trips. And on our road trips down the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi. Until next year...
