The sky was so beautiful today. The corn is getting harvested right now. I see Farmers driving their huge combines down narrow country roads always waving with a smile on their face.

When you drive around out in the country people always wave. I like that. It gives a sense of familiarity.

I took this photo of the corn against the sky. If you click on the photo you can see the way the sun is flowing through the corn stalks and leaves. I noticed the sky was several shades of blues..

This barn has went through a transformation since last year. It was rather faded and worn looking. The owners have really done a wonderful job painting and fixing it up. I liked the flag in front of it.

I thought it was neat that I came across Sassafras Road! How cool is that?

This little Sparrow was waiting for me when I got home. Looking at me beseechingly, for seed to be put in the feeder.

This old barn used to belong to a friend of mine. They have moved and I miss seeing her work in her garden. One year she grew thousands of straw flowers and hung them up in this barn to dry them. The colors were amazing, yellows, creams, bright pinks, red, blue, purple. She made greeting cards with them, She gave huge bouquets of them away as presents. So I named the barn Straw flower Barn. And when I pass it I remember the Summer of a 1,000 Straw flowers....

Orange is a color that just makes my heart happy..It is bright and cheerful and reminds me of Summer. The Rose Moss is still blooming in my clay pots in the front yard.. I will miss them when they are gone.

I found this feather on my porch yesterday morning..I am not sure what kind it is. But i love it.

Last night as the sun was going down. I stood on the porch and sipped my tea as I and watched it slipping through the trees. I love the bright spots of light that flashed through the branches. Casting warm orange yellow rays across the sky and onto my grateful face..Is anything more glorious than watching a sunset?

Last but not least my little orange dog Molly.. What a sweet companion. I say little, but she is really pretty big. She is half pit bull. I have had her for 8 years. Elizabeth named her Molly Holly Zimmerman when we first got her. LoL
Molly has the sweetest eyes to me, and I love to watch her roll on her back. She is so funny when she does that. She will sit and watch the birds and squirrels eat and never bother them. She is a kind soul. But very protective. I love her..

I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend.

Fall Photos..

These are a few photos I took today while Elizabeth and I went for a ride.
I love it that the leaves are turning colors. I had forgot my camera at home and drove back and got it when I saw this little barn against the blue and white sky with the trees changing colors beside it. I have taken a few photos of this barn before, and I just love it. This is called a Coffee tree. I am not sure why, but the color of this in the Fall is magnificent.
I just liked the colors of this tree. With the yellows and hints of orange.
Another Coffee tree.
I saw these Geese just soaking in the sun today. They were on a hill about 4 miles from my house. I thought they were so pretty..
Aren't they cute?
This one was sitting by itself...

My brother had a friend who use to sell sassafras root. For those who do not know what that is, you make tea from the root. You boil water and pour the water over the root and let it seep in a tea pot.

You then pour it into your cup and add sugar and cream. The color of the tea is a faded orange. And the flavor is so good.

I have not had sassafras tea in years. But I was thinking about it today while driving around doing errands.

The colors of fall are starting to come in full force. Vibrant orange and yellows. Warm reds..I love the colors. Today was rainy and with just a slight chill in the air. And I made a roast with potatoes and carrots. I made fried apples for dessert.

I got the apples from the orchard last week. They were so good. I have enough left for a couple of pies. I hope to get some photos tomorrow of the fall leaves. Until then I leave you with these quotes:

"The need for devotion to something outside ourselves is even more profound than the need for companionship.
If we are not to go to pieces or whither away, we must have some purpose in life, for no man or woman can live for himself alone."

Ross Parmenter

I would not wish to darken any other life - I want to be a messenger of optimism and sunshine.
Lucy Maud Montgomery

The best way out is always through.
Robert Frost

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."
Albert Einstein

About Me

My photo
I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
