Big Boy No. 4014 Visits St. Paul

The largest steam engine ever made visits St. Paul before heading to Duluth. It drew crowds all along its journey. The only time I got a look at it without people standing in front of it is when I happened to be riding my bike along Shepard road the night the train arrived at the union depot.

I grow these or maybe I should say they grow themselves in my Yard. I associate them with the start of Summer because they tend to start blooming around the middle of June. There are so many things blooming right now that you might start to notice a theme on my photo blog. ­čÖé
