Today is National Nude Day, so if you decide to participate make sure you have sunscreen – or only go out at night like these folks.  Enjoy!

Made me giggle

And speaking of statues . . .

These Guardians of Transportation attend the Hope Memorial Bridge connecting Cleveland’s east and west sides.  The scale of these monumental pylons make them difficult to photograph, but I remember being captivated by the detail and art deco loveliness when I was still a kid and we drove across the bridge.  The carved figures are on both sides of the four pylons.  The guardians each hold a symbol of transportation in their hands.

THE GUARDIANS OF TRAFFIC The Lorain-Carnegie Bridge ...

I would hate to see what these guys could do if they decided to strike back at the statue topplers.

Some flowers from Maine

We recently got back from mid-coast Maine, and I miss it.  Here are some flowers from the trip . . .

rhododendrons outside our front door – there are some big bumblebees in there

foxgloves across the road

peonies (actually from New Hampshire)

Some exuberant elderberry bushes from our nature center at home

Bonus baking blog – Afghan Biscuits

June 26, 2020

We are on vacation so posting has been light, but I did want to share this recipe.  I read about Afghan Biscuits  – on Gastro Obscura – and I looked up the recipe.  These biscuits (cookies) are apparently a New Zealand specialty.  I had never heard of them.  Now that I have made them (twice) they have become one of our favorites, too.
