A good walk

Paul and I had a chance to walk this evening, since he was taking a night off from his daily run. I haven't bringing my camera on our walks since the mornings are very, very dark and in the evening, we have Mr. Samson. He requires full attention but with Paul holding the reigns, I was able to snap pictures. We walked down to Floral and turned left at the beautiful yellow bush. It is a beautiful bush so I snapped a picture.

At the end of Floral, where it dead-ends into San Lu Rae, there is new construction! At least, there is a big ole hole being dug which we anticipate will be a new house. There are two new homes on either side of the big ole hole. We both remember the old homes that used to occupy the lots and the new ones, well, they just look new.

And, as promised, the cow. I swear, I have NO IDEA why they have a cow in their yard. Henry knew much about the cow but I decided to post pictures and let him provide us commentary. I still think that it is rather peculiar and someday I would like to sneak up and take a close up. And touch it. I have a Red Wings banner on my front door but I sure wouldn't think to have a cow....

Yup, it's a cow!! Specifically a Holstein-Friesian -- the most popular of the dairy breeds. See http://www.holsteinusa.com/

Good livestock photo work by the HR Maven.

I still think it's a prank. Would there be a place for it on Argentina??

Henry, it ain't no prank. Somebody WANTED to put the cow in the undercover of this landscape in front of this house.

So in addition to learning about plants, were you required to learn a little bit about bovine science, too? How in the world did you know this was a Holstein-Friesian? Did you spend too much time at the 4H club as a kid, or did you learn about this cloven beast at Cornell?

Oh, how I love the forsythia. Love the yellow. It's so rejuvenating.

As for the cow...it's an interesting piece of lawn art. Maybe they're trying to start a new trend. Me thinks you should get a cow. Better yet? A bull!

No, there will be no cows on Argentina. We have standards. We have a GSD.

And for the record, we are all still waiting to find out why the Grass Doctor knows so much about bovine taxonomy!
