Monona City-Wide Garage Sale Today

This was about the most interesting thing I saw.

Flowers at the farmer's market.

Ostrich eggs at the farmer's market.

This woman at the farmer's market had the coolest hand-made signage.

I don't know why it caught my eye, but I liked it a lot.

A special surprise was the "Grandma Mary's Paste tomato."

My Darling B bought one to raise in her garden so she could make pasta sauce for my Mom, Mary.

Lunch hour on cap square

I bought a pint of orange juice at the corner store, sat down on the lawn and ate my hamburger.

I wish you could smell this

The lilacs are in bloom!

More lilacs!

Attack of the Garlic Mustard Gang

My Darling B wades into a patch of garlic mustard with both arms swinging.

The groundskeepers of the capital lawn dug up the tulips and gave away the bulb to passers-by this week. The square was littered with tulip blossoms.

If your car is missing one or more parts that are so significant a person who had never seen a car before would notice, you're probably driving a piece of junk.

If your car is being held together through the liberal use of duct tape, you may be driving a piece of junk.

Flowers! Zillions of 'em!

Tourists will have to find somewhere else to say "cheese" with one hand raised in greeting now that the construction crews have moved in on the State Street corner of cap square to begin tearing up the sidewalk. Miss Forward will be off-limits for a couple months.

I spy with my little eye ...

a headless man sitting on the lawn in front of the capital.

I spy with my little eye ...

some new masks and other ephemera in the front window of Taylor's.
