Almost Hollyhocks - Hwy 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas - a.d. elliott

I have no patience Mom,

This is a hollyhock.  Last Spring I found the prettiest (according to the picture on the package) hollyhocks.

I planted them, and they grew to amazing heights but didn't bloom. After researching a bit more, I realized that hollyhocks don't bloom the first year.  They just grow.

Here we are, in year two.  The hollyhocks are thinking about blooming but still haven't.

Fish is sure that these plants are weeds, not hollyhocks, and that  I am lying to him.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Is That A Ghost? - HWY 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Eerie and unexpected.
This was a little creepy Mom - 
I was wandering through the forest, getting pictures of leaves, moss, and squirrels etc and when I started processing this image I noticed the shadow.
I *think* (hope) it is simply motion blur from the wind, otherwise, Whispy and I were nose to nose.
I suppose it is almost Halloween.

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Nevada - Naked Strip - Las Vegas Blvd - Las Vegas NV

Look, Mom! No cars!


Some months ago I had made plans to run the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon just to get this picture Mom.
Due to some unforeseen training issues (otherwise known as not training enough) I had to pass on running it.  We had thought to cancel the trip, but after #VegasStrong we made sure we came.
I was able to get the picture I wanted and I saw the race from the sidelines.
Next year!

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Colorado - Towing Capacity - I 70 - Eastern Colorado Plains

T The little Prius that could?

Did you know your Prius can tow Mom?
I am actually really shocked.  I had no idea that a Prius had that kind of gumption.
My hat is off for these totally fuel efficient travelers.
Bonus points for their groovy bike.
