Scary Mystery

One morning.. I went out to put something in the mailbox.
This was on the stone path in our front yard.





I leaned down to get a closer look.
EEEK..I'm a bit scared. I go to the
front door and called for Rich.

"Something out here is scaring me, come look please"


It's soft & velvety feeling ..& it looks like an EAR.
Shades of "Blue Velvet" (a movie by David Lynch)
it's an ear, it's an ear

It's creeping me out.
It's the size of a human ear.

Rich says.."everybody calm down"



Oh I'm glad I don't have to imagine about it ..

A Walk with my BFF





My BFF Marcia came to visit today, we had iced tea & a GOOD salad
and then a lovely walk up Singing Woods Road

I love the stamens of a Poppy, this one is in our yard.


Even fungi can be pretty 

A house that is next to the Singing Woods preserve, recently
purchased by the Park District and added to the preserve.
The house and building will be the center for studying the preserve and 
it's water & wildlife
Hum, this bird, I don't know..was in a huge open field
(thank you Jayne..it is an Eastern Kingbird!!)

A butterfly in the road side growth
