The Sunday surprise was the first blooming of the morning glories on the porch. All bloomed, first time the same day.
The flowers are all blooming toward the light, of course, so they don't bloom on the porch side. I will take more photos of them from the other side another day.
I shared the rolling hills of southern Iowa on my Photo a Day blog. Here is another one showing the hill and timber of the area. Grazing cattle can be seen, and I did see them, but I didn't get any in my photos. I was at the wrong place to get those cows in my viewfinder.
This photo again shows the rolling hills. There might be black spots there on the right which would be angus cattle.
In comparison to the south this is where I live in central Iowa. It is prairie with lots of flatter land but not perfectly flat, like you find in northern Iowa. We do have loess hills in our area but that takes too much time to explain. Another day and another blog I can share some loess hills.
I will be a literacy teacher at the 7th grade level for ten weeks. I have subbed in there many times the last few years. It should be a good time doing it at the beginning of the year.
It does mean I have to go back to a rigged schedule with about 9 hours yanked from my time. That change from the retirement life that I experienced all summer will be hard for me probably the first week.
We have had thunder but no rain the past evening. I may have to start watering plants if it does finally stop raining in Iowa. I wish you all a good first day of week day and thanks for stopping by today.
