So this is May? Yesterday was sunny, but I had to work, and today we are back to this. Our fields are partially flooded. Our garden is a muddy mess. And it is May! When is La Nina going to lose her steely gray, wet grip? I am not sure how much longer we can slog through this mess.
On a completely difference front (and not related to the farm so folks who follow this as a farm blog can stop reading now), I have had a long lingering question. What is this?
It is an art piece that the city of Burlington paid for to showcase the entrance into town (the one closest to us). I would love to hear your opinions of what it is supposed to be.
It looks like a stylistic silo to me.
I’m with you on the rain thing – I’ve had 88 inches of rain since November 1, 2010.
Looks like a silo to me, too.
Silo under construction.
The ladder inside seems to be for climbing up. Once reaching the top I imagine leaps in a valiant effort to procreate. Kind of a spawning activity, so to speak. Now I finally get the meaning of the name “Mount Vernon” although I’m not sure Vernon is the right gender. Maybe Sedro Wooley is the true object of Burlington’s ardor. I’m sure Newcastle envys this civic symbol and I’m expecting several City Council meetings devoted to discussing it.
Thanks for clarifying that I have a dirty mind. Apparently the artist’s conception was for a silo. It is nice to know that most people aren’t thinking what I am thinking when they drive into our local town.
