Header Challenge - Trees


I expected October to bring us some cool, sunny days and add brilliant reds and yellows to the thie part of Maryland. Instead we got the remnants of a Pacific hurricane. Nothing like folks in Mexico and western US got. My header is looking across the field behind our house. Our maple provided a spot of color and the oak gave some interesting shadows. The other tree and shadows was found near the pizza place in Frederick.

Header challenge - Selfies


I went out this afternoon and took some selfies in the late afternoon sun. The van windows made some of these reflected selfies so the camera got included.


Full sun in my face and below the camera in my face. 



And a shadow selfie taken Monday

Header Challenge - Today

My header and images were taken Today (back on Oct 14) from our yard. While I was outside taking the images in this post, a hawk soared under the oak branches in our yard and perched in the neighbor's yard two houses down. The field behind us has turned golden, a few of our flowers are still blooming and the sky was a gorgeous blue with some white clouds.

Sky Watch - Return of blue skies

September had a lot of gray skies. October began with a change to blue, a welcome change!

Header Challenge - What's that?

There are lots of buildings around here with cupolas on the roof. They also have wind vanes, directional arrows and birds or animals adorning the top. This pair adorns the top of the local rescue company. But what is that gray tube between the cupolas?

What's this bug?


  
 What's this? (Delicious harvard beets made by Marianne!)
 
What's this?
The return of blue sky after a couple of weeks of gray with intermittent rain. (Nothing like the rain our family and friends in South Carolina got.)
