We were doing clean up after a great lunch and I happened to look out one of the windows of the kitchen. I saw the clothesline, and I got a photo idea!! I grabbed a handful of wet tea towels and headed out the door in the wind with my camera in hand. It took me a few minutes to even get the towels on the line as the wind was whipping them every which way. I stepped back to see how things looked and decided I better set my camera on sports mode!!
My Mosaic Monday post is an edited collage of clothesline pictures. While I was editing them I thought they looked a bit like some photos from my favorite "prairie" books writtten by David Bouchard and illustrated by Henry Ripplinger.
"If You're Not from the Prairie..."
One of the rooms in our BnB has a trio of some "prairie shots" I have taken. I placed them over the headboard and then have "Prairie Born" below them in wall talk. You can visit our website to see our bedrooms at the BnB. I also ordered some pictures from Dave Bouchard's book and have them in a grouping on one of the walls as well.
While operating the gift store, I had guests that were born on the prairies sign a favorite page from the "Prairie Born" book. It provided some interesting reading.... I wish I could say that was my great idea to do that, but a fellow gift store owner came up with the idea first and I liked it so much that I did it at our store :)
So I will end today's post with a quote from "If You're Not from the Prairies" as well as
my windy day collage.
"If you're not from the prairie,
You don't know the wind,
You can't know the wind.
Our cold winds of winter cut right to the core,
Hot summer wind devils can blow down the door.
As children we know when we play any game,
The wind will be there, yet we play just the same.
If you're not from the prairie,
You don't know the wind."
