Summer Tanager

Wow.  My blog is still here.  It's been how many weeks -- months since I was here last?  

Is anybody out there?

Had to post this guy.

Juvenile male Summer Tanager

He is getting his red/orange coloring, slowly but surely.
Hope I can spot him again from the kitchen window.

My first photo taken this year.  And it's with the iPhone.  But I just had to turn around and get this.  Too bad that fence post is right in the center.  Seems there is always a car behind me and I rush.

Christmas to Color

A brand new coloring book for myself.
Will I actually use the colored pencils I also bought and fill up the pages?
Doubt it.  But it does look good on my coffee table.
And made a pretty picture, too.

November Sunset

I plan to get around to everyone in the next couple of weeks.  Thanks for letting me know you're still visiting me.

Huntsville Botanical Garden

In September I visited the Huntsville Botanical Gardens with a long time friend.
Yes, September.  Yes, I'm behind.

This "hay house" was cute with all the gourd decor.

During September and October, the scarecrows visit.

The butterfly house was open in September which was our primary reason for going.  I got a few good shots which I'll show later.

This friend is one of those who seem to know when you need something, and what that something might be.  So thanks once again, if you're reading.

Summer Summary

I'm still kickin'.  Well, maybe not kickin' exactly, but getting by.

Here is the extent of summer action around the place.
(I did spare you from photos of grass mowing and all the things that have bit the dust here in the last three months.  Oh, and all the appointments, phone calls, forms, signature guarantees, etc., which one has to deal with following a death.  So complicated.
Hopefully, I am about done with all that bother.

Some patriotic harvest, thanks to a volunteer little white pumpkin/squash.

Wheat field with some color.

Green wheat . . . 

Golden wheat . . . 

Rain . . . 

A visit to a friend's beautiful shady garden oasis. . . 

Some bathers . . .

Some eaters . . . 

Some bunnies . . . lots of bunnies . . . 

A couple of hunters . . . .  one stayed close enough to get a few shots - with the camera, of course.

Icky batches of insects all over the crape myrtles. . . 

And a great 50th birthday party for a good friend.

Hope everyone had a good summer.
