Fall Blooms..........

I had the choice of sharing these blooms or a photo of cold, cloudy, winter looking sky.  I chose the blooms.  I will have plenty of cold looking skies in the future.  The colors of these mums are really great.

Helping Out with Everything........

The neighbors cat likes to come over and share himself with us.  He likes to eat from the free food bowl on the porch but he does just like people.  While I was out near the shed he was everywhere that I was.  He kept moving his head so I don't have a photo of him in perfect focus.

To prove that he was everywhere, here he is coming back down the ladder next to the apple tree.  He had climbed up the ladder and before I could get a shot of it he started to come back down. He has a very unusual voice box as his meow is different than I have ever heard.  It is a very low meow.

It Must Be Spring......

The wild violet was blooming yesterday as I was looking for new fall shots of the garden. Our weather warmed up enough and there is plentiful moisture.   I am sure the snow that falls on this violet will cause the plant to be disappointed. I just saw a  science film today about ants.  The Nova movies says that the ants spread the seeds of the wild wood violet.

Happy Sunday......

I have a few zinnias left to bloom.  They have done so well this summer in spite that I had planted them late.  That sure seems like a long time ago when I was planting in late May.  Our days are a lot shorter now but we are enjoying a warm spell for now.

Birch Bark............

The house shades part of the tree and the rest of the tree reflects the sun that is setting in the West.

Worker Bee........

The newest dahlia bloom is having a bee visit it.  The bugs are sure enjoying the larger bloom so seeing this small honey bee was a great opportunity for me to get the picture.

Fall Reds.................

As I press leaves in books, I find that they don't keep this color.  They mature into a darker red color as they age in the pages of a book. The nicest orange red patterns leave and they all equal out as the same red color.
