Overcast at noon on the 4th of July — limning the lake.

2 guys were fishing on the pier by the Limnology building...

... and one man out by the boathouse, past the "no trespassing" signs...

P1150547

... lily pads...


P1150539

... unfurled...

P1150540

... prairie flowers popped...

P1150543

... nothing stops a mere fly from enjoying the butterfly weed...

P1150537

The toad in the road crosses quickly and thus only gets to be a tiny dot in my show...

P1150541

... not the star.

The Porter Boathouse with its lake view-blocking height should never have been approved. If I win Megamillions tomorrow, I will give the UW $$ with the stipulation that the boathouse be burned to the ground.

Have the No Trespassing signs there ever been enforced? I've never heard of that happening.

So was that Meade out there, bravely disdaining the sign to wife to the perfect shot.

Meade is the rebel; Althouse is the Tory.

Not Meade,

He was off on Picnic Point with Zeus. I was walking toward the Terrace for some ice cream.

I had to look up limnology to understand how they got away with putting their building practically in the lake.

Happy 4th, Meadhouse!

hey, one of these days could we run a

Clinton/Trump/Johnson poll?

Or maybe a Clinton/Trump/Johnson/Stein poll?

Curious how the third parties are doing on the Althouse blog.

Here's a view of the USA from an outsider's perspective. Good on ya, Nick.

Limnology, lol. Learn something every day.

That flower has a whiff of anti semitism, just a whiff.

Remember back in the '90s when Trump ruffled feathers as a new arrival in Palm Beach by allowing Jews and Blacks into Mar a Lago? All that good work erased by a simple, ambiguous graphic.

The facts of the Clinton's venal conduct must never be discussed! I think Trump wins that one though, because the image is out there now, and Hillary's numbers continue to drop, as they should as the facts become known and discussed.

I worked Caicos and Curacao on the band this morning, working countries I've never heard of.

As a kid long ago at least countries had names you knew. The hobby has changed.
