on the Black River near Sarnia, Michigan. I can tell that because
there is a sepal visible in the picture, and the sepals are deciduous
and fall off after the first day.

I went to the little town of Blue Lake for a couple hours, only about 6 miles from my house, but inland and not the direction I usually go. It's like a little mountain town, very charming (to me anyway). I don't think there actually is or ever was a lake. I'm sending these pics just to give you an impression what I saw on the path along the river.
Best of all, it was warm enough to leave my coat in the car! And when I walked along the river, I actually (are you sitting down??) TOOK OFF MY SWEATSHIRT!! Which meant I had only two layers of clothes on! Maybe I WILL be warm again.

For the story behind this garden, click here. This time, the weeds were blooming. I almost hated to dig them up.
Lynda planted 3 beds with vegetables and herbs, while I fought with the garden tiller to clear 2 more. We have 4 more beds left to clear. We were both so tired and sore after this episode. By the time I got home, I was covered with bruises and poison ivy. Makes me wonder why I love gardening so much. It's going to be ok though, Lynda planted okra just for me. Yea!
We had to transfer these two to a new home.

I call these "Wavebreak" and "Before Wavebreak." "Wavebreak" is now one of my favorites of all my outdoor pics.
I think it's impossible to get anything but a good picture at Dry Lagoon.
I was there again cuz the paper re-hid the Easter Egg, which disappeared from its first hiding place but was never claimed. Incidentally, I was told by someone at the paper that it was NOT at the bridge I photographed. They picked up the clues mid-stream, leaving the early ones that took you to Stone Lagoon, but changing #6, which referred to needing hiking boots, to "hiking boots will not be needed." For some reason I thought I'd be able to find a hiding place that fit the other clues but which was near the parking lot but I couldn't. I also looked at the old Stone Lagoon visitor center, now closed, and the Stone Lagoon Schoolhouse -- poked around a few places but no luck. Even drove a few miles down the road to the little town of Orick to see if anything was called Stone Lagoon something, but nothing was.
Eventually I went to Dry Lagoon, since the tide was going out, and enjoyed the scenery and tried a little to find some agates. I only found 3 smallish ones and one itty bitty. I don't have a good eye for them but enjoy looking. But it was quite cold and very windy so only stayed there about 90 min.
Today the paper just ran clue #6 again. Weird! But I don't intend to go looking again. Gas is just too expensive. It's been $3.79 the last couple weeks. Leaflady (Gail)
