I was so awed by the colors of nature this weekend…purple mountains, grey storm clouds, sun highlighting the fading green of the prairie.  I love wide open spaces, the sky and land appear endless at times. The orange lichen was more captivating to me today than the fossils I was looking for, but on my search for more lichen, I found some really cool fossils too. Worms that are actually clams in petrified wood. And now, for a cool bath in my fantastically tiled bathroom!
