The Color Begins

Mother Nature paints the hillsides
In brilliant colors and hues
Those colors always amaze me
So I felt I should share them with you.

Goodie goodie gumdrops
My mother would always say
She often placed them in a candy dish
My favorite to this very day.

Fall Beauty

The colors of the landscape change daily

Seeds in the wind blow away

A captive audience applauds

Out on the prairie.

On another note, I went to a gathering to listen to Margaret Kerry. She was the model used to draw Tinkerbelle ,in the animated version of "Peter Pan". At 87 years old she was amazing with her spunk and vigor, showing a few moves on stage that had made her famous. She was in "Our Gang" and a number of other television shows and movies. We stood in line and danced a short shuffle doing a bit of tap dance, my having to ad lib watching her moves. I hope at 87 that I too will have this kind of energy.

Strolling With An October Breeze

 A huge Blue Racer  is a leader for reptile hibernation. It often knows the best places and many species follow. Known to be a bit aggressive I am surprised so many might want to hang out all winter with it. I sent a picture to a friend and he thought I had found a cobra.Not having a heavy glove I didn't get a closeup of myself holding this cranky critter.They have a mouthful of teeth to hold on to a meal while constricting them.I had told my youngest I had a gift for her, and she told me to keep it if this was the gift. She thinks I need a pet to keep me company since I live by myself.

Morning glories shine in the sunlight climbing up corn stalks.

Sunlight shines a silvery sheen on these prairie grasses.

You can scratch a name on many vine vegetables and it will grow with the fruit.
Those last few blooms become just as precious as the first blooms.

As one can see, I played with back-lighting today.
