There is a strip of grass that butts up to the beginning of a few blocks of low-income and government supported housing. Though it is a busy street, and maybe to some a semi-scary street, a local business owner thought that small strip was worthy of a garden. If one looked at it a glance one would think it was a stray garden but in fact it is an act of love. Here are several shots of some Eastern Purple Coneflowers that reside in the stray garden on the way.
Early AM this day was great by one heck of a storm: Rain, cloud to cloud lightning, hail and shear winds. In its path a lot of folks plants and flowers took a beating, along with many tress and power lines, but the little stripe up the road seemed to fair fairly well. I am glad since this Indiana Blanket flower has a relatively short life span I had zero captures of them this year. So here is an Indian Blanket after the storm.
I passed a church today that I have been by many times but never stopped and took pictures of it. I have passed this church, which is I believe I read was around two-hundred years old, for three years as a charge of a former employment setting. Today I had to venture two counties over and pass this church in search of a part for my new-to-me-ride, The Blue Broom. Since I did not have anybody but me to answer to today, I stopped and grabbed a few captures. Here is one of from the day.
