May I remind you that all the pictures in this series are taken from slide scans,
many of which were taken many years ago.
Today I start with a picture of our Agriculture Research Center located in Morden.
Many roses have been developed here ,as well as other crops.
The next two pictures are a tribute to Jake's Dad,he pains takingly built these replicas
of the school house and teachers home in his district.
This school was operational until just a few years ago.
Our son had his first 6 years of education here.
By the time our son attended here,they had indoor plumbing. This plane and the car which follows were built by Jake,from kits.
I had to add a few fall scenes,because of the time of year.
I have to say that I have not seen them in such numbers in along time.
In looking at these pictures,I think they were probably taken in spring.
The B-52 is a massive plane and a pleasure to watch in flight.
This one never has flown,it is another model which Jake built.
A little creative photoshoping,took out the wires on which it was suspended.
Because I would probably give them the wrong names,just enjoy the show.
We have spent many hours at air shows and therefore have many photos of the planes. Canada Geese need no explanation.
The Western Meadowlark in that perfect light.
This was taken several miles west of Morden.
We used to see Moose there all the time,but they seem to have disappeared.
A playful Cottontail Rabbit on our yard.
If we called them they would come out of the bushes looking for carrots.
Yes,these were wild Cottontails.
In fall when I had a pail of carrots standing on the steps
the rabbit would come and help himself.
I kind of miss those times.
Value the beauty of the changing seasons.
