Artistic Nature

Someone at Hahamongna Watershed Park can't help being creative, and I know who.

Every time Boz and I walk there we find a new, precarious structure that delights us—well, they delight me. Boz has other uses for these temporary works of art. And anyway, pretty much everything at Hahamongna delights him.

Perhaps dogs think that nature and humans are very generous to stay with their needs in mind all the time :)

When I was growing up these kinds of signs were meant for hobos to discover where they could go to get some food or a drink of water.

Hi uma por dia;
I think my dog just expects it. He assumes he's the center of my universe (and he's not far from wrong).

I grew up in DeKalb, Illinois (my sweet, small town is troubled today). In the wooded areas along the railroad tracks we'd find hobo camps. There were probably such signs, but as a kid I was oblivious to them.

Called in from Lisbon Daily photo.

Love these shots, and boz is priceless!

ps - I don't know if you'd be interested but Charles Gramlich has just posted a general post on school shootings, and deKalb was mentioned in comments.

If you ever do any exploring around Eaton Canyon nature area, see if you can find our fairy house!

Julie at...Thanks for the link. I read his post but didn't comment. What could I add, really? I have no answers.

Love Lisbon Daily Photo (nudge to uma por dia)! Would love for Boz and Pinky to meet. Those Mexico City shots are wild.

Sarah, I'll come looking for your fairy house and hope I find it! Fairies have ways of hiding their things from grown-ups, but I have my ways of seeking them out.
