This is our home, smack dab in the middle of The Most Beautiful Place in America for the next five days.
Bliss: found and followed.…
Eclectablog got another shout out last night on The Rachel Maddow Show. You can watch it HERE. (It’s the one that mentions the bridge.)
I’m in the northern part of Michigan for the next few days so you won’t see much blogging. Last night I spent the night in this one-room school house, built in 1898 or 1899.

Remember my post about the 12-inch wide, 10-inch tall mushroom in my backyard?
It had babies:
This is known as a fairy ring. The original shroom threw out a bunch of spores around itself. It’s long gone but the spores have taken off.
