At the Olbrich Gardens butterfly exhibit today, one particular julia butterfly was very patient with me. While most of the other butterflies in the dome fluttered about, this one just stood there, posing like a model for several minutes.
My new kitchen is almost complete! Monday, the counters arrived, and yesterday the plumber was here to hookup the sink and dishwasher. Yes, I actually have running water in the kitchen!
I say almost complete because I’m waiting for the the cabinet pulls (which are pewter). They should look nice with the appliances. And of course I need to paint.
I’ve been meaning to try some concert photography and last night’s performance of Balla Tounkara et Groupe Spirit at the free La Fête de Marquette festival in Madison provided the perfect opportunity.
The band is from Mali and played some very infectious afro-pop. I enjoyed their music a lot. At times when I was shooting, I had to remind myself to stay still for a good shot. It was really hard not to move while they were playing.
The surprise perennials at my house just keep blooming. These lilies are about the last of the blooms for this year.
