Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Flowers.
From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:
April 15 and my Irises are in full-bloom. Man am I dreading summer.
From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:
The TA truck stop in Albert Lea, Minnesota had so many “interesting” displays and kiosks, including this ode to American patriotism. Buy ALL the red, white and blue things!
From Erin in Bellingham, Washington:
These are Foxglove, which grow everywhere in the summer. Taken near Racehorse Creek Fossil Slide in the nothern Cascade Mountains. I searched for awhile to make sure I got the name of these right; I knew the Biodork readers would call me out if I was wrong!
