As I was being delayed along the highway at the Mile Long Bridge, I took a few photos of Lake Saylorville. It is a man made lake and can't compare to any Minnesota lake. The bridge was having a square of concrete removed and replaced causing flag men to keep us waiting for one another to cross the bridge.
Last summer the engineers held back a lot of water and the area we see here was completely under water. It was at a high stage for a very long time causing a lot of erosion along the original sides of the lake.
The small water pockets were left filled with water helping wild life and birds to have use of them. The road that I can take to the under neath side of the bridge is down the hill right there and it runs all along the small water pockets.
The virus situation keeps me from working on the house as I have too many neighbors up there that move back and forth in packing plant territory. The one works at the grocery store of that town. I really need to be able to freely go to the hardware to get parts for my work, so I just won't work on the house. The yard work is being monitored by certain people to be sure it is done.
I found a water bottle and a discarded coffee cup from McDonalds that blew into my yard so I could cut tulips The forsythia is actually blooming this year. It doesn't always do so. The gardens at the old place are not so good any more as I can't maintain them when I am not living there. I am glad I moved as many plants that I could the last couple of years so I can see them at the new place.
Thanks for stopping by today. My truck looked like a florist truck after I got the things into the car.
