My Whimsical Weekend

I went to a magical place called Possum Lodge.

A dog named Lily lives there. She didn't really want to have her picture taken.

She was camera shy but quite an animated tour guide. She showed me a hand-made canoe that was a showcase of wonderment.

It has a duck head bow. With feathers!

Duck head! Feathers!

Out in the garden a gnome named Hermann was trying to drive away in a tractor.

A palm tree shades the patio. In Iowa! In October!

I left Lily in the land of whimsy and headed back to real Iowa where farmers were busy in the fields. This combine had a big American flag mounted on it. Alas and alack, the magic was gone. The flag refused to show its face. Or maybe it was the fact that I was driving down the road at the time and lucky to even get the combine in the frame.
