We had a most beautiful rainbow this past week.
It is actually a double one, but this shot does not show the second band very well.
I took this while driving the Gator through the woods at night.
I really liked the color combination.
"We" have been painting this summer!
The barn/house is now a wonderful red with brown trim.
"We" means that I only painted one brush stroke of brown trim.
One day....when I have some extra cash just lying around...
I would love to add a silo with a big bank of windows.
I did a rendering of it and will have to post it.
A work in progress.
I have three pumpkins that are now pollinated and we have been getting some
nice rain to get them going.
This little fellow has really been entertaining me.
He loves to sit on top of this little tree in my flower garden.
There is nothing more annoying to the minis than the sunflower patch on the other side of the fence
The sunflowers are all volunteer plants and I can't believe how tall they have gotten.
My mom has cleaned out her attic and found several boxes that had a few of my childhood treasures.
When I was a wee child and my parents sent me to a class at the YMCA to learn the art
of gourd decorating. The class was taught by Sparky, The Gourd Lady.
You may have caught a glimpse of Sparky on the Jay Leno show.
The brown thing is a turtle with a little smile on his face, and
the green one is a martian (he was being blown over when I snapped this shot).
I also had this wonderful little train that plays music.
You can move the little colored ties around and it plays 15 different songs.
Of course you can always make up your own songs....so I guess it can play an infinite number of songs.
I found great humor in the name of this little train.
More of the beautiful sunflower patch.
Another house shot.
Probably should have moved the large black grill out of the way.
Hello little spider!
May the donkey and Otis the mini mule got haircuts this week.
Otis likes having a little topknot.
He is a very fashionable mini mule.
Ollie did not get a haircut.
I could not catch the little rascal....
He will be taken care of when he gets a manicure.
Zippy is starting to be more interested in his ball.
He is not sleeping as much, but is still about half speed.
La la la la.....I wish that the waiter would hurry up and bring our dinner out here.
Seriously...what is taking so long???
Oh no!!...you did not get that on "film" did you???
My garden is starting to really look nice.
Um....except for that pile of lambs ear blooms.
Note to self....clean up piles of garden clippings before taking pictures....
Beautiful Elk Knob State Park!
