No! This is not my backyard. You can tell because there's no lake in my backyard, and while I 'do' have rabbits, hummingbirds, wasps, squirrels and skunks...I don't have a duck! :-) No, this is not my backyard. This photograph is of Lake Needwood in Montgomery County Maryland...Didn't she take a beautiful picture of it?!! :-)
If I had a good enough camera, and a faster-on-his-feet husband I could have gotten a picture of the big skunk that was meandering across our yard last night though! LOL...Maybe next time! The skunk moved faster than hubby....waaaay faster!
My husband is more of a 'meanderer'...like the duck in the header photo. And his meandering, while not good for capturing skunks on the run, is very good for capturing panoramic views of our backyard as it's showing a bit of it's Fall colors!...Let's pan from left to right, shall we!...
Ahhhhh! It's so nice out there right now. The stuff seasonal poems, hot apple cider, cornbread stuffing and sweet dreams are made of! :-) ... Now let's pan back the other way, shall we!...
Wait a minute!....Let's get a little closer view of that color back there...
Our backyard is mostly green year round...except for when it's covered with ice and snow (but that's a story for a later time!...Much later, please!)...So, when I see this explosion of color back here it gives me a little emotional explosion too...right here...--> *pointing to my heart*. :-]
Okay...back to the panning...
And now we're right back to where we started. :-) I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did!! I'm afraid there won't be very many more days where Fall photos can be taken in the backyard. Pretty soon the few pops of color we're getting from these beautiful leaves will be gone...blown away by a north east wind!
And this morning, as I'm typing and realizing that it's 20 minutes before 7 a.m. and it's still dark outside, I get the funny feeling that 'Daylight Saving Time' in our neck of the woods is just about to skedaddle off to some other neck of the woods until next year too! :-(
I guess I better start thinking seriously about what kinds of projects I wanna get to work on this winter......*cold shiver* O_O
Anyway...I'm probably gonna need another project to work on a lot sooner than winter, because I finished doing both of the Giveaway scarves...except for cutting and tying the fringe for them.
I had to take the 'Pastel' ones completely a loose and start again!! That's what I did all day yesterday...So, if you're thinking of entering the Giveaway for the 'Pastel' scarf, this is what it looks like now...
So, if you're still interested in this scarf, remember...the Giveaway drawing is October 1st!!...See the right hand sidebar for details.
Okay, I'm off to cut some fringe, and maybe 'cut-a-rug' too! I need to get out of this 'No Daylight Soon',...'Hormones Acting-Up'..funk I'm in. I'm feeling like listening to some music, after another cup of coffee, might help!!! ^_^ Are you with me?!!
You Go, Girls!!!.....Tomorrow I gotta tell you what other funky-moving object was seen in the backyard yesterday!...Until then...Have a good day Everybody!! :-)
Daylight, you bring such happiness,
shining on the Autumn hues.
And when you're gone, you leave more darkness,
bringing on some moody blues.
How could some light, or lack of it,
have me waxing poetic rhyme,
wishing for a place with celestial money,
so I could buy some Daylight Saving Time?!
