Dad says this was taken at the wedding dance for Ben & Geri. His brother, Bud, was gone serving in the Korean War. I can identify my grandparents, Ted & Minnie, sitting in front on the left. Beside them is Eleanor & then Butch. My Dad is watching between Minnie & Eleanor. I enjoy this photo because it really captures my grandmother at a younger age. There's not a lot of photos that I've seen of her during this time period.

Update: My uncle Butch says this is a 1949 Ford. "You can tell by the door handles." He thinks this picture was taken before my folks got married. Thanks, Butch!

I have probably posted this barn photo before. I took this photo in April of 2009. It is just down the road from the barn photos I posted a few weeks ago. This barn is on a working farm so I took this photo from the road while sitting in my car. This spring when I drove by again to admire it, I found it collapsed in a heap. I was sad to see it gone.

A week ago Don & I attended a bird watching class at the CROPS farm on the edge of town. I saw my first Indigo Bunting. Anyway, I noticed these poppies blooming on a hillside. And since I'd missed the poppies when they had bloomed in my neighborhood I went back for these.

I visited Dad today. We drove out to check on his wheat on the north quarter. It's ripening early this year. Usually they're harvesting about the first week of July. Dad thinks this year it might be ready in another week. He noticed that the heads of wheat aren't bent over yet. A sign it's ready for harvesting.

I haven't photographed many flowers this spring. My favorite poppies near the park bloomed while I was in Texas the beginning of May. By the time I returned they were gone. I walked by these tulips in my neighborhood at the beginning of April & went back with my camera. I've learned to not put off photographing flowers.

When we visited Austin & Yizhi, they gave us a tour of their labs. And they spent a few minutes checking on their specimens. I did not enjoy my science labs in college but I am impressed with the level they are at. When Austin talks biology, it is like another language. Translated that means I don't understand much of it.
