Left to your own interpretation

I was helping my sister Linda with her baked goods business at the Auburn Indiana Farmers Market today. It is on the square in front of the courthouse. They have added some sculptural art. I have heard many people say that they don’t like the modern sculptural art and I agree that it is hard to interpret.  I see it that there has to be some kind of physics involved when designing it because it takes much vision and thinking to keep this from falling apart, how is it being held to the ground with only three pieces touching?  This one also at the top where the red dot is, will move with the wind. I think it looks like a person walking and as the piece moves at the top they are observing the world around them.

Pretty purple flowers, not sure if they are a form of phlox.

I don’t know her name but she is one of the vendors. Her father in law has a greenhouse in Michigan and she has been selling the plants every week. They look so healthy and she said she would bring her card next week so I can let you know.

A little walk to the Cupbearer Cafe, and I come across this interesting light fixture.

I thought this wall sign was very neat.

Signs pointing the way. We understand as the weather gets warmer the vendors become more abundant.

I took a walk today to gather leaves or other natural items to paint or carve into a stamp. The colors are starting to come out. This is a bush outside of my front door. It was so pretty with the sun shining on it.

I have watched these pinecones when they first came on to the tree, and then they grew and were green and now they have matured.

The squirrels are busy. The farmers almanac says we are going to have a lot of snow this winter, it seems as if the squirrels know it too. They were very active this morning, running all around and chirping at me as I walked by.

My sweet potato vine has been blooming this last couple of weeks. They look like small petunias. It was kind of a nice surprise. Hope that you have a lot of pretty nature where you are at.
