Kohler-Andrae State Park

Karl and I drove to Kohler-Andrae State Park today.

We already have our annual vehicle admission sticker for the Wisconsin State Park System. Wisconsin DNR & COVID-19 has more information.

People were there. The park is large and it was easy to practice social distance. We have our face masks in the car, when needed. There was plenty of room to walk.

The visitor center at the entrance is closed. By the building, there is a garden and pond. Karl took these photos there, and in that area.

A beautiful day. One good careful step at a time.

Creativity Over Time – 2

Perhaps a new series – my post last week was Creativity Over Time.

reading poetry
many different forms
seasons turn again
always familiar
always new

I often read several books at the same time, as I’m sure is true of many of you.  In the morning, I am better able to learn new things.  Later in the day, I love to reread and rest with familiar authors.

reading a new book
of poems by Luci Shaw
with a cup of decaff
on my little table
I find myself
saying grace again

TIME

2014

Perennials certainly picture creativity over time. I am ready for autumn. This was the year of tree work and planters of flowers on sale. And all the faithful perennials. The rose bush is still growing – perhaps there will be another rose this year. These are two more of Karl’s photos from the nearby trail on Sunday.
