Children of the corn

These children are tiny flowers that grow throughout the corn field.  (Corny, I know.)
(oh, and when human children start coming out of these corn fields, I'm moving.)
I have already found my scary Halloween font.  (also corny).  Reminds me of Hobby Lobby.  They get the next season's things on the shelves months ahead of time.  And, I have had the John Carpenter theme song from the horror movie "Halloween" in the back of my mind.
At least I did wait until September.

Corn is lush, corn is scary

This year's crop in fields surrounding my place is feed corn.
What was lush and green a couple of months ago is now dry, brown and ready to harvest . . . and scary looking . . . to me anyway.
I dread when they harvest because of the dust.

Two's company

Photo ops still few and far between, and mostly limited to the home grounds.
I'm grateful we have a good sized property and no neighbors to amuse with my squatting, bending, and sitting on the ground.

On the lake

We took the boat out one evening while our son was home for a couple of weeks before he went back to campus. The temperature and humidity were not bad or this woman would have stayed at home. They didn't catch anything and there weren't many photo ops either. The wildlife was pretty scarce. Getting a sharp image in a bobbing boat is certainly a challenge, but I did manage to get a fairly decent shot of a heron of some kind.

A favorite from 2010
On "the Lexington Road" in Lauderdale County, Alabama
The last time I went by, the barn had fallen.

Somewhere in extreme southern middle Tennessee.
I had to include one with the sweet little dog who enjoyed our visit and wanted to have his picture taken in front of his building.

So, I thought the sunflowers I planted this year were going to be my flower obsession for the year.
However, they have been upstaged.
I bought a pot of these flowers at Lowe's the other day and can't stop looking at them.  They are so bright that I was tempted to dial down the orange saturation a little.  There is a Black Eyed Susan thrown in there too.

I planted sunflowers this year.  Some of them are red and orange.
All of them are gorgeous.

I have been sporadic with the blog the past few weeks.  Just as my husband finished more chemo for the cancer that spread, my elderly mother fell and fractured her pelvis.  He is feeling much better and the hope is that he can have a substantial break before more treatment is required.  She is doing better in the rehab facility for now. I hope to return to a somewhat normal routine.  Thanks for visiting!
