A Pretty Walk

18 Oct

I wanted to go for a walk in the Back Forty before the shagbark hickory tree lost its beautiful bright yellow color.  I didn’t notice I was also photographing some of the local wildlife.  Do you see it?


How about now.  I didn’t even see the deer next to the fence until I got the photos onto my computer.


By the time out got to the tree, the deer was gone.


Glad I at least got to see it in the photos.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Friday’s Hunt v2.16

14 Oct

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with Q, Week’s Favorite, and fall/spring.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with P: Obviously, I have pumpkins on my mind right now.  Here’s some of the pumpkins from my pumpkin patch being hauled up to sell.


Week’s Favorite:  My favorite this week was finding the time to go for a walk in the pasture and enjoying a wide variety of birds.  I shared some earlier this week, but today, I’m sharing my shot of the bluebird being photobombed by the yellow rumped warbler.

Whole:  Well, it’s not quite the whole herd, but it’s pretty close.  There is a whole hickory tree just starting to turn golden.  I will admit, this time of year I wish I had a lot more trees that have brilliant colors.


Now it’s your turn!

Just a Kid

13 Oct

Part of me is really dreading the end of the pumpkin patch season.  Part of me is really looking forward to it.



Well, I’m looking forward to sleeping in just one day or maybe even taking one whole day off.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  I have the items for this week listed at the top of my side bar.
