Liquid, liquid, lots and lots of liquid in the form of a torrential downpour clogged street drains causing the rain water to back up a foot deep into the street. The pressure of the rainwater coursing through the sewer caused the water to back up and spew upward out the culvert. We were lucky. The water did not reach our house. The houses in this photo were not so fortunate and had water in their basements.

My place in the world is anywhere my husband is. It’s wonderful to say that as it wasn’t always that way. We’ve come a long way in the last ten years. This place is the flat look out over the Missouri River at Klondike Park in southwestern St. Charles County, Missouri.

Such a perfectly composed photograph of two people who obviously have a very close connection. I stumbled upon these two purely by chance as I was walking by and it is unlikely that such a moment would be replicated again. Garden of the Gods, in the Shawnee National Forest, Herod, Illinois.

Prolific. What an appropriate word for what we go through each summer for several weeks. The white tufts from the cottonwood tree in our backyard and those that abut the creek bed down the street from us, fly through the air much the same as snow does in the winter, and piles up the same way. A fact I learned today…our tree must be a female, as only the female trees shed their cottony seeds.

Awakening is a re-emergence of something dormant. Who would have thought that by putting the bottom of the celery bunch in a water would cause the center of the plant to regrow! I was amazed and it continued to grow, that is until the day I forgot to water it.
