Fun Monday - Indiana Wants You

Pamela of Dust Will Wait is the hostess of this week's Fun Monday adventure. For our challenge, Pamela is asking us, "Show me in pictures or tell me in words what defines the place where you live." The wise and wonderful Pamela is leaving the interpretation of the task up to the participants. (Of course, the generous Fun Monday crowd is always accepting of others responses...after all this is about having fun on Monday.)

This comic strip drawn by our son, Luke, for the Purdue Exponent when he was a college student delineates a definite feature about where I live.


Living in Indiana, we have the opportunity to experience all four seasons and all sorts of weather.


Spring

Summer




Autumn


Winter

(Note: I was planning a blogging special event for Valentine's Day. However, perhaps this should be postponed for another day.)

My hubs is from South Bend and Logansport, Indiana. What he doesn't miss are the winters. He has fond memories of the Fall.

Great photos. Funny comics. Wishes for a great week. Will be back to find out about the special event. Can't seem to produce complete sentence. Sorry. It's late.

Pamela said...

Great idea!!! I want to come see you in the fall - it looks so beautiful.

Four Seasons. I can't imagine living without them (but please hurry up spring!)

Thanks for the visit Molly, I really miss "Fall" we don't get a fall season in Queensland.... which is normally home!!!

The autumn photo you've shared takes my breath away...such a beautiful golden dreamscape!

Now the snow part....you can keep that, that is why I'm down almost as far south as we can get!

My Fun Monday is posted, I do hope you can stop by!

Your post is a wonderful seasons series of pictures. Your son's work is right there with the theme of change. Such put me in a party frame of mind.

Lovely pics and post! Happy FM to you!

Jientje said...

I like the seasons too, except for one. They can skip winter for me unless we get blue skies and snow, then I'm all for it!

Janis said...

Great photos of the four seasons. I did a way with one and thats winter. We go south for that one.(thank you Lord). Your son is a good artist, I like his comic strip. I will keep an eye out for your special event.

Beckie said...

You definitely do get four seasons there and if they are anything like your photos they're spectacular.

Karmyn R said...

I love the four seasons too. The winter picture is especially pretty.

Illinois is much the same, although I haven't seen much of water like what you are showing, and we live in MO and have lived in IA as well, so we've had good and bad of all of the above

LadyStyx said...

That's what my brother likes best about Indiana, the fact he can still experience all 4 seasons. I love that winter pic.

The Church Lady said...

I have never been to Indiana, but your seasons look alot like ours. Your winter looks a little harsher though - wew!

Great photos. I like the summer one - vibrant colours!

Sayre said...

I wish we had four seasons... Mostly we have two - hot and not-so-hot.

BS said...

Great photos - looks like a wonderful place to live.

Junebug said...

I love all the seasons. It keeps you wanting more.

Faye said...

Yes we are lucky to live where there's a definite change of season although spring seems to go right into summer lately. Maybe that's what you son's cartoon said--when I embiggened it blurred! My computer--everyone else seemed fine. Need a geek squad.

Did you get to see the President when he was in IN yesterday? I fear you had to work.

Nessa said...

Love the four seasons pics.

ChrisB said...

Great idea showing all the seasons.
