The Photo Bin - June 2012


Along the last paved road before home,
an impromptu vegetable and flower stand.


Unattended. Honor system.
No prices. Leave what you can, what your conscience tells you,
knowing that the proceeds go to a local charity.


Mary will love these
as much for where they came from
as for how dang pretty they are.

Reminds me of the man who sells "local honey" on a table in his driveway up the road from me...and the Iowa farmers who kept fresh eggs in coolers at the end of their driveways next to a Folgers coffee can for donations. Gives you a little faith in the world, doesn't it. :)

Mike Sepelak said...

Yes ma'am. It certainly does. Thanks for dropping in, Erin.

Mike! Where have you been? So happy to see you at Rural Thursdays! This is such a cute post!

Tanya said...

Robyn said...

Mike, say your link on A Rural Thrusday. I really like the first picture!

Hope your wife enjoyed the pretty flowers.

I've been around, Nancy, lurking, but thoroughly enjoying my daily A Rural Journal RSS feed. Today I was inspired to participate. Thanks for your wonderful blog and for saying hello. And I still owe you some fly pictures from your beautiful rooster feathers. I apologize for the delay.

And welcome to all those visiting via A Rural Thursday. Such fun! Hopefully a fishing blog, albeit a bit odd for that genre, isn't too far off the mark.

Thanks for following, Tanya. Hopefully you won't be disappointed.

My wife loved the flowers, Robyn, just as I supposed.

And we are familiar with Chicago-based tiaras and tantrums, Teresa, as our four-year-old granddaughter, a princess of the highest order, lives just off Lincoln Park.

I am glad you went flower fishing today.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Nice to meet you Mike. Great picture find!
And in my opinion, fishing blogs fit in 100% w/ Rural Thursday!!

Mike Sepelak said...

Me too, Marme. Me too. Best catch in weeks.

And I think you're right, Lisa, but I'm glad to have the confirmation. Nice meeting you too and THANKS for hosting!
