We lost most of our ash tree in the recent storm.  Karl has been taking care of the wood.  We’ll leave part of the tree stump and see what happens.  Hosta surround the stump, which may become a place for a large planter.  We have also seen new growth from fallen trees, over time.  I will watch and learn more.

These flowers are planted beneath a plaque honoring World War II veterans from Oostburg, Wisconsin. Their names are listed.  Karl took this photo on June 28, 2018.

Summer 2018

I asked Karl to take new photos for the blog this summer, as I focus more on poetry again.  These are a few of my favorites.
