Implement, Highway EE

Here’s a bit of irony. Once upon a time, the farm implement in this photo was new and tilled the rocky soil of Door County, Wisconsin, clearing the fields of grasses and wildflowers to make room for corn, wheat or other crops of choice.

On this day, beside County Highway EE, it was the grasses and wildflowers that had the last laugh. The implement sits old and unused and the new flowers and grass peacefully coexist with a machine designed to ensure their destruction.

Funny how time does that.

Tan Eng Loy of Singapore, who has a fine photo blog, has tagged me with a meme. Name five of life’s simple pleasures that you like most. Well, here goes:
  1. Standing on the shoreline of the ocean or one of the Great Lakes before dawn.
  2. Ice cream.
  3. Sitting at the computer in my PJs posting photos and answering comments to this blog.
  4. Snuggling with my wife on a chilly winter night.
  5. Laughing.
That’s five and now to tag five others: Ilona, Her Royal Highness Empress Baggie, Hillary, Ric and Stacey.
