Grandad’s Bluff – La Crosse, WI

Last Year’s Garden

Last summer we planted a variety of things in our garden.  We had brussel sprouts, broccoli, strawberries, and three varieties of lettuce.  We got a good deal of lettuce out of it, but the broccoli and brussel sprouts were too difficult for us beginners to cultivate.  Squirrels got all the strawberries, so this year we’re […]

Who knew we had wild turkeys?

We had some turkeys running through the neighborhood and all I could grab was my cell phone. Yet, the pictures aren’t all that bad. Not too long ago I saw a man feeding a turkey in his front yard just a couple blocks away. I’ll be keeping my eyes open and camera at the ready […]

Another Album Moved!

I’ve moved another album to this site. This one’s very small – and perhaps badly named, since I anticipated adding more pictures to it. Who knows – maybe there will be more to come. Powered by DM PhotoAlbums&#153 Full Screen
