The Big Orange Barricades

Wisconsinites like to say that there are two seasons: winter and road construction. We’re currently in the latter season. The evidence is everywhere. In fact, road construction barricades have their own names in this part of the country.
See these? We call them Schneider Eggs.
Without Schneider eggs, where would the big orange trucks come from?

Last week I heard a bus driver refer to the orange markers as “Wisconsin’s State Flower.” Ooh, ooh, here’s a bouquet growing in — gravel?
I see these flowers spread out when they’re allowed to grow in grass.
If the big orange cones are Wisconsin’s State Flower, what are these?

Share and Enjoy !
