Mr. Farmer went to look at a piece of farm equipment and when he told me where he was going, of course Wylie and I wanted to ride along. We had some extra time and so we drove through the game preserve. So wonderful to see the buffalo and a few elk.
Even spotted some elk.
The weather has been absolutely beautiful in Kansas. A perfect day for a walk in the sandy area just a few miles west of home. Such a perfect place to walk, very isolated and so peaceful.
Perfect weather for everything to be out. When I saw this track, I thought “this is no bicycle track” I picked up Wylie and we loaded up. We’re out of here……………SNAKE
It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but it’s like a friend you haven’t seen in a long time and you just pick up right where you left off. Today our adventure was one of my favorite places, Lincoln County, KS. I love the landscape and especially the limestone, be it fence post, homes or bridges. ❤ Limestone
Lincoln County has a program that recognizes all the old schools. Here’s a couple we saw today.
Liberty School 1893-1947
Spring Valley School 1893-1953
I love goats
What a beautiful home and barn. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to fix this up?
Stone Arched Bridge
Huge old oak tree. That’s Wylie sitting at the base of the tree.
Something I have NEVER seen……..A plane at the gas station!!
It’s good to be back with a post. Hopefully I can get use to using a laptop instead of a desktop (as I no longer have a desktop because it quit!). It’s been quite a learning experience for me. I can get into all sorts of trouble on a laptop. Touch the little touchpad the wrong way and things disappear!! Touch the screen and it either grows big or small or disappears. What do you use when you post? And please don’t tell me you post on your phone!!!!!
This is the reward for enduring a day with a temperature of 98 and winds gusting up to 40 mph.
St. John’s Lutheran Church – N. of Ellis, KS 1921
This beautiful church is located on a blacktop road north of Ellis county. Built in 1921, it offers Sunday school at 9:30 and worship at 10:30.
No plumbing, his and hers outhouses.
They aren’t quite butterflies yet, but I was so excited when I found the monarch caterpillars!! I planted the butterfly garden a few years ago and this year we have SO many butterflies. I also found 10 caterpillars on my parsley.
We haven’t had the monarch butterflies yet, but we have hundreds (and hundreds) of Painted Lady butterflies. They are enjoying the Rough Blaze Star, one of the native plants that I bought at the Arboretum of the Plains in Hesston, KS at their spring sale. Their fall sale is this weekend. You can bet I will be there!!
