Fun Statues in West Bend

Last Friday, I went up to West Bend, Wisconsin, to visit the Museum of Wisconsin Art for the very first time.  The museum has been in the same location since 1961, but recently demolished the old building to make way for a brand new, modern-looking one.  But since I arrived early, before it opened at 10:00, I walked around for a bit, and noticed some really different statues close by.  Two of the statues, the frog and toad musicians, sat on benches outside what used to be the city's train depot.

The other group of statues were located right behind the museum and featured an otter, beaver and turtle.  A strange combination, I thought, but intriguing.

I don't know the meaning behind these statues (if any), but since they were near the art museum, they fit in nicely and were an amusing treat I didn't expect.

Spring Flowers

Spring has finally started coming to Wisconsin.  Recently, I took a class on Macro Photography, especially how you can use it for flowers.  Then I went to both Waukesha Floral & Greenhouse and the Mitchell Park Domes to practice my new skills.  I had a lot of fun and learned a lot!

I will try to post more photos of flowers as they bloom in the outdoors over the next few months.  This post is for Wordless Wednesday.  To see more bloggers' photos (and maybe more flowers), click here and here.
