Summer Potpourri

Lake Harriet, Minneapolis

Today, I'm sharing a visual summer potpourri of snapshots...




The Minnesota prairie 




Westwood Hills Nature Center. Two big bucks!




Something old in Menomonie, WI

Hungry? I know a place...




Lake Pepin





Nelson, Wisconsin overlooking the great Mississippi.

Looking back, it's been a great summer outdoors!



Meanwhile, My dad....


I burned the wood, a prescription for healing, over at my other blog, The Chorus of the Crows

The awesome Links:

As usual, wonderful pictures. I love the bird conflab on the line. :-)

I'm always fascinated by birds sitting on power lines. However, I'm aware of the fact that their sitting might cause damage to those lines and to our electricity in the house.

Judging by the picture, Your Dad is a nice person who likes pets and probably human beings as well.

The last memories of summer. But good you also have signs of the beginnings of Fall, and thank you for sharing these with SEASONS! Your posts are always interesting, Sharon. Am looking forward to the next weeks one:)

Beautiful summer in your area Sharon! I linked over to read about your dad and the book you are writing; it sounds like it will so good -- and a great tribute to him. And at our advanced age, I certainly understand about being grateful for every day when our head (and fingers) work halfway correctly ... I hope you will keep us posted on the progress of your book here on this blog. I'm an avid reader but I learned early in my blogging that I didn't have time to read BOTH all the books and all the blogs that I wanted to read. (And though I tried, I found I couldn't blog about books I had read worth a bean)... So I have pretty much dropped book blogging and bookblog reading.

Jan Robinson said...

A lovely collection, my favourites being Lake Harriet - the colours reflected - beautiful and the Mississippi River. I've read about this river but not seen many photos of it. It truly is impressive.

Always enjoy your posts...and this time, the birds on the wire, the pelicans. But that one shot of the 'great Mississippi' is outstanding...such beauty for those who take the time to stop and see what is there. Excellent photo array Sharon.

Sharing this post was much appreciated for us birders this week at I'd Rather B Birdin'....for that, I thank you.
