Fireroad walk

Hello,

I have a mish-mash collection of photos from my yard and some from around the lake all taken around the middle of September.

I am not sure of this bird's id, maybe an Eastern PeWee or unknown flycatcher.



During our walk to our lake, it was a beautiful day and an awesome looking sky.



A neat shaped cloud.


My morning glory fence with some pokeberry for the birds mixed in. You have to look hard for our the chained link under all the greenery. We let some of our yard go wild just for the birds and critters.


More Pokeberries.



My moon shot from Sept 14th. I missed the harvest full moon our skies on that day were cloudy!




I hope you enjoyed your visit and my post. I appreciate your nice comments. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Here is a list of linky parties for part of the week, I hope to see you there.

Walking the trail

Hello,

We have been on the NCR bike trail at least once a week lately. There are still some wildflowers blooming, we saw and heard a few birds and a snake crossing the trail. The weather is still summer like, officially Fall starts on Sept 22. As I type this post we could use some rain we are in a mini drought.

One of my only bird photos from our walk. A blurry Chickadee, it was moving quickly around the tree and fussing at us.





Are these called cairns, people must have stood in the river stacking up these rocks.





Even with the mini drought, the flowers were still blooming mid September.




I believe this is a harmless garter snake, later on we just missed a Copperhead on the trail. Some brave people moved the Copperhead off the trail right before we got there.


Back at home two Cardinals in our backyard.


For Tom's Barn Collective, I have another local barn from our neighborhood.


This is an update on my reading, I have now read up to # 9 in the Women's Murder Club mysteries by James Patterson.  They are usually page turners for me and I like the main characters in these stories. The stories take place in San Francisco. For some reason, these books remind me of old TV show called the Streets of San Francisco. I guess I am showing my age, it was cop show from back in 1972 with Karl Malden and Michael Douglas.

Thank you for visiting and as always thank you for the nice comments.  Have a great day and new week ahead!

Here is my list of memes for the week, I hope you can check one or some of these fun memes and the participants post.
