Five Fs

Friday night fireworks at a June Reds baseball game

detail of sculpture: The Birth of Venus by Robert Laurent placed inside the Showalter Fountain on the campus of Indiana University

I planted bush beans in pots on my deck this year!  These are the flowers of a purple variety.

On the Indiana University campus, this squirrel ran up a small tree and kindly posed for me.  He has a very long tail.  I believe this is an Indiana fox squirrel (Sciurus niger).

famous foliage
two tower trees:  In the 1870s a tree was noticed growing from the Greensburg, Indiana Courthouse.  Over the years a series of trees have sprouted, thrived, and subsequently died.  No definitive explanation exists as to how the seeds have germinated in the tower.  No one knows how the trees have survived 110 feet above the ground.  The current large tree has been identified as a mulberry.
