This wee little one (either a bee or hoverfly) was foraging for food on the face of a sunflower the other day. He was quite willing to stay put for a few photos, which was quite nice of him. I think we bonded that day.
And now we know. Yesterday, I posted a photo of a barn between here and Sublimity either undergoing construction or being torn down. Guest photographer Maryann Nielson happened to take a picture of it two days ago, and sent it to me.
I’m sure the owners had their reasons for taking the barn down, but it’s still sad to see it go. It was a cool barn.
I am really annoyed with myself for not posting this image sooner. I took it on August 5th, when the red barn along Cascade Highway between Stayton and Sublimity was either under construction or being torn down — I have no idea which, as I haven’t been back by. I bet they’re probably finished by now, or at least close to it. I completely forgot this image existed. My bad.
I last posted a photo of this barn last month, when it was in fewer parts.
I was at the A&W restaurant on Washington St. the other day getting my root beer float fix, and thought this sign that hangs over their counter was pretty nifty. They have good root beer, so they must be doing it right.
This is not a sponsored post (none of the posts on this site ever are). I just like the root beer.
