Urbana Uncropped, 7/3/12

I spent a little time today enjoying the beauty that is Champaign County, OH.

 A farm pond on the county line
 Two of the many horses in Champaign
 We also have lots of cows
 Our campus has some lovely hanging baskets, but...
 the real beauty lies in our perennials!







 Part of our campus has been allowed to revert to prairie...


 I love it!




 A local Scout troop built a wig-wam last week on our "prairie"

 Also, we have squirrels

And nuthatches...lots of nuthatches...did I just type that? Hope you enjoyed :-)
Decided to follow up with the moon from last night and tonight, just because...
 7/2/12
 7/3/12
 7/3/12
 7/3/12
Moonstruck daisies!

Ha! There are plenty of sheep and goats and some llamas, etc., in Champaign County...I just didn't get over to where any of them live. Also, it's awfully hot for sheep, so they generally aren't out grazing in the afternoon. Frankly, I thought I would wilt wandering around campus taking pics of flowers.
