Overcast sunrise with bikes and geese.

 Time: 5:42 a.am. Did I bike there? No. And bikes are forbidden there. I ran — getting back to my sunrise run (after several days of babying myself after a wisdom tooth extraction). Even in Madison, rules are transgressed. Not by me, though. I'm a rule follower, one of the class of persons who are restrained by rules that are not actively enforced and that those who only follow enforced rules do not follow. I regard that as a fundamental unfairness. And yet, I can see that willingness of ...

Backyard protractor wheatfield.

 Yes, it's our backyard. Yes, it's a wheatfield. Obviously, it's in the shape of a protractor — an old-time-y open-center protractor. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

5:53 a.m.

 The official sunrise time this morning was 5:41. Earlier today, I posted pictures taken at 5:35, 6 minutes before sunrise, when things looked much redder — as if some horrible disaster were taking place on the opposite shore. But this photo, 12 minutes after sunrise, is mellower, the red replaced by gold. The season of the days of the longest light has just begun. Picture the summer solstice in the middle of a 3-month period and you'll see that we're just entering this period. This is somethi...

Somehow Trump remains the top news story.

Here's what the top left corner of the NYT website looks like right now: Who's really "marooned"? Trump at Mar-a-Lago? Or the media cut off from Trump?That said, I love the photograph, and I approve of the front-page positioning of this story if only to give prominence to this fantastic shot.

Sunrise — eastern and western view.

At 5:48, looking right into the sun:   At 5:55, looking west:   The western view shows something that I've mostly ignored all my life: The spring foliage on the trees is varied in color like fall foliage. It's not just green. There's gold, orange, and brown along with a wide range of greens. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

"Ms. Toogood... introduced a bed for Birkenstock... with sides and a headboard so voluminous it could be mistaken for a crash mat. 'It’s part of my softgoods obsession,' Ms. Toogood said. We need that comfort and softness at the moment.'"

From (NYT). I love the name Ms. Toogood — Faye Toogood — and I'm amused by the blobular furniture. I'm having severe 70s flashbacks, but it's not that nightmarish. It's pretty amusing. I think it's funny that Birkenstock makes beds now — blobby beds. I see they're on a cork base, like the famous shoes.I'm not convinced furniture like that is actually comfortable. You might look at it and get a message of comfort, but try getting up after sitting in it for a couple hours. As for the likeness to...

We walked 6.6 miles in New Glarus Woods State Park today.

Brilliant green after yesterday's rain:  Does this fungus suggest the presence of sponge mushrooms nearby? Ramps:  [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Sheltie love.

I encountered these incredibly beautiful dogs yesterday (at Devil's Lake State Park):     They could not have been sweeter. Could they have been more beautiful? I have to say yes, because there was a third one, the prettiest of the bunch, but I didn't catch him on camera.I love the way the one in back comes to the fore. And I love the way the black one has a swath of white across the chest that continues onto the leg. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]
