An Autumn Afternoon

It won't be much longer that the roadside (flowers) weeds 
will be so evident. 

Days are growing shorter, and colder. 


I'm constantly looking for hawks, but seeing many, many crows now that the 
corn and beans have been harvested. 

I am seeing the odd hawk, though, here and there. (Like WAY off the dusty roads) 

These guys were way out in the middle of a field, and as soon as I stopped longer than a minute, they all began heading for the tree line.  However, I know where they are, now, so will see if 
I can find them later this weekend. 

Our beautiful waysides are fading now. 

I saw these resting in the shade of a tree as we came home from walking... 

and their buddies were grazing in the afternoon sunlight. 

Another memory from Facebook... bringing back the "good ole days"

Our beautiful old Ranger, with his crooked muzzle ... the best dog 
who ever lived in the country. 


  1. Like the bale Halloween scene. Though here, it might not be welcomed. A prominent, though not too smart at the time, farmer was kicking the blockage out of a round baler and got pulled into the machine. He didn't survive.

  2. Awwww, Ranger was truly a very good companion. He was lucky that y'all rescued him too.

    I copied the pumpkin for the hubby to show his customer. She has the plant nursery and has a big spool painted with a jack o lantern face. I told him to tell her she could do this next year.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. We laughed at that bale picture, and tears from the ranger one. hugs.....stella rose

  4. Beautiful photos!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. I too am enjoying what's left of these beautiful days and appreciate all the views you get there in the country. I've not ventured out much lately and enjoy your pictures. We're to be in the 70's this coming week so I'm thinking that might be our Indian Summer.


I love comments!
