Welcome To The Thistle Stop Filling Station

Once again I have hit a dry spell of new captures. This time it is due to the season opening play at our local Playhouse. Our playhouse rocks, and after a rocky season for The Bride and I,  it was good to see a great start to a potentially great season. As many legs were broken on stage and the night…uh, early morning arrived ,  I had to once again dip into the way-back-files. Here is a capture of several pollinators getting topped off for the road. Welcome to the thistle stop filling station!

I took this several years back with my first "real" digital camera, a Powershot S3is.

A Photo Potpourri

I knew today was going to be mostly cloudy but I was hopeful that the Sun would show up for a few cameos. Well no such luck so I went to my default setting and just took the shot(s). Here is a few from the day!

The fine folks at the road dept have created green spaces at varies entrance/exit ramps. I do not know if this is true all through our fine Commonwealth but it so in my part of it. The poppies are popping and I hope to get back when the sun is shinning and the wind is NOT blowing!

Do you wish, as I do, that old and abandon places could talk?

I was taking a few pictures of a nearby Fleabane when I noticed these wildflowers. I was drawn to the unopened blooms when I noticed this ant. Quite the poser he is!
