Skywatch Friday 61

A couple weeks ago, a friend and I ventured uptown for the weekly Dane County Farmers' Market. As we turned up a row of the parking ramp in search of an empty space, my friend suddenly burst into laughter and exclaimed, "Look!"

This is what we saw:




Naturally, I had to get a closer view. It turns out the cow — a remnant of CowParade Wisconsin — is perched on the back of the Madison Children's Museum. The museum has two levels of rooftop gardens, and this was the view I saw as I walked up the hill towards the cow:




And here's a closer look at the cow (read more about him here: Marbelized). Check out that blue-blue sky behind. It was a perfect spring day: warm and sunny with just a hint of a breeze.




Here's a final close-up of the lower rooftop garden — I couldn't get a good view of the top garden from street level.

I like the very first photo of the cow. It looks as if it's just hanging out.

Heather said...

Kalpesh: It does look rather realistic, doesn't it? *G*

Lina: Thank you! ☺

Heather said...

Mickie: Not unless you're in Wisconsin anyway, LOL. : D

A cow! How fun!

Heather said...

Anni: Doesn't it? We had 100 of these life-size cows around town one summer. They were fun to see and photograph.

Alice: Fun! I bet he looks even more lost in the rain. ☺

Thanks, Jana!

Christian: Thanks. Do you think she wonders how she got up there? ☺

Rebecca: Isn't it fun(ny)? :D

Alice Audrey said...

I wish. No, it just looks wet.
