As I was driving on Arrowhead Road near Hunter’s Park I notice white stakes or sticks near a creek. I went around the block to get a closer look. The stick are hollow plastic and protect saplings. This is Tischer Creek.

The sun was warm, but the wind was chill, (Robert Frost). Today we came across three poems about spring written on the sidewalk on 9th Avenue East. This first one was by Robert Frost, the next by Margaret Atwood and the third by Sitting Bull.16.04.23  poem Margaret atwood .jpg - 1

The blue waters of Lake Superior calmly met the rocks along the Lakewalk. This morning. The day started out sunny and blue by afternoon we had rain. Notice the brown vegetation and super small buds on the twigs. Lake Superior keeps the temperature cool. The buds are further along up the hill away from the lake.

Where does the lake end and the sky begin?

Can you tell where the lake ends and the sky begins? Also, how many church buildings do you see in this building. I see three.
