Corneille d’Amérique

This morning I was on the pipeline and the river was close to normal after a raging spring. A groundhog was beside my car as I was leaving and later as I was sitting beside our fire pit a blue heron flew over at tree top height. Nice end to May!

Skyland is my favorite place in the state of Virginia.

I made a trip to Whiting’s Old Paper in search of images I find interesting and to get my scanner up and running on our new computer. No drivers for Windows 7 to work a wonderful old scanner. Americans should be ashamed that nothing is made to last including our architecture. We live in a throw away world for the most part. Guess I’m just living in the past, which I’ve been often told.

If you have the skill of a jeweler you won’t have a problem with this Authentic Museum Quality Laser Cut Replica. My friend in Hanover Co. had cut the bush (Elaeagnus) and burned the stump where I could get macro shots last season (WTF?) The clothes line is the best bet this year or for me this robot sculpture.
