Oklahoma, like most states, has its own unique brand of weirdness. One of the weirdest is this cemetery, located smack in the middle of the parking lot at a shopping center over in Sand Springs. I was out puttering around, pursuing the perfect sunset photo on Thursday evening, when I found myself in Sand Springs and decided to pop something artsy through the cemetery fence. Below is a less artistic shot that gives you a better sense of location:
Here’s an interesting low-angle shot of our bottle tree:
Ron has been working hard to get the trim on the house painted. We still have to climb up and paint the chimney and the sides of the house, but the front is looking pretty good, I think:
And, of course, a quick garden update:
Pond. The newly planted irises are from my mom.
Honeysuckle growing along the neighbor’s fence … an invasive plant, but the bees love it.
And, of course, a picture of Pushy and Elektra.
Oliver and Ashley are in town for a couple of days. We went to Chandler this evening and shot some pictures along Route 66, which I’ll try to get Photoshopped and online as soon as I get a hand free. I’m still trying to sort the half-kajillion images I got yesterday; I’ll have photos and stories from that ASAP. In the meantime, here’s a quick shot I got during a chance meeting with Ace Jackalope, who made a surprise appearance yesterday during the festivities on Route 66 in Kansas:
Stay tuned … more photos and stories to come.
