Lol, I looked him in that beady eye and stared him down. . .

Blooming Flowers


Some of the flowers that were blooming on the rooftop garden.  I just love flowers!

Old Barn


A touch of old.  I was actually trying to take a picture of the barn from far away, but I couldn’t back my camera out in time.  I think it came out pretty good!

Wings Aflit


Not that I like buzzards, but this was a surprisingly good picture of them 🙂

Pelicans in the Midwest!

PelicansIt’s funny.  I always thought pelicans and seagulls were oceanic birds.  However, we actually have a ton of them in the midwest.  For some reason the gulls like the Rivers (and the farms).  You will see a lot of them in the water pooling in the rows of crops on the farm.  And the pelicans show up with the eagles in winter.  Now sure if they get confused by the river water or what, but hey! I get to see pelicans!!


Romance in the City


I just loved this little splash of romance in the middle of the city 🙂

Say hello to Spring!  Apparently April Showers really do bring April Flowers, at least daffodils.  Spring has Sprung at last!

Roof Garden in Seoul

Roof Garden

Roof Garden in Seoul, Korea.  I had never really been on one of the roof gardens, so I expected then to be kind of small.  However, apparently some of them are a pretty decent size!

Pearl Button Capital

Pearl Button Capital

My best picture of the pearl diver statue in Muscatine Iowa. For those who don’t know, Muscatine was the Pearl Button capital of the world. You may actually still have pearl buttons on some blouses, they are the whitish buttons with rainbow pastel colors. Usually very thin. This is where they gathered the pearls and made the buttons.
