Too bad there was no one there to help me mount the critter. I would have loved to have a picture of me on it. Of course, I would have needed someone to take that picture, too. Ah, well, I would probably have gotten bucked off anyway. When I was a kid growing up in Iowa we had such docile cows, that I was sure I could ride one. Never got up the nerve to try though. Seemed too risky, even though I rode very questionable horses quite often. And got thrown off a lot. I guess I knew a horse would just buck me off and run, but a cow..... What might it do? Stomp on me, kick me, head butt me?
More views of Gage Gardens. (Remember, I told you once before that it's very manicured.)
Haven't got the butterfly and dragonfly photos ID'd yet, but I don't think I got any lifers. South of Marathon at the Post Park there was an abundance of Buttonbush growing wild. Butterflies gravitated to it.
