social distance greetings

social distance greetings
across parking lots
and park spaces
open in some ways
closed in others
we all understand
and are grateful
our common good

And garden journal photos by Karl this week:

Bridal wreath by Lake Michigan – we planted this bush years ago.

Poppies were planted by previous owners decades ago.

Kohler-Andrae State Park

Karl and I drove to Kohler-Andrae State Park today.

We already have our annual vehicle admission sticker for the Wisconsin State Park System. Wisconsin DNR & COVID-19 has more information.

People were there. The park is large and it was easy to practice social distance. We have our face masks in the car, when needed. There was plenty of room to walk.

The visitor center at the entrance is closed. By the building, there is a garden and pond. Karl took these photos there, and in that area.

A beautiful day. One good careful step at a time.
