Sharon, I did go for my walk. Nothing noteworthy to tell you about there. I just got around to asking about the grader. I did do some looking on the internet and it closely resembles the 1901 Champion model. http://www.championantiquegraderclub.ca/photo.htm If it is that old, I feel sorry for the horses that had to pull it.

Kelli - You should contact a local historian (or someone like that) to let them know the location of the grader. If you're right it's an antique.

Good eveing! :D We had a gorgeous day w/a high of 78*. A little on the breezy side, but very nice.

Kelli, I have got to say...that machine is massive for a horse to pull! My guess is they Had to use draft horses or even oxen to maneuver those things. That sure is a lot of steel for regular sized horses to pull. I would much rather see the pics you post instead of the movie stars! :D
Sidney those sure are lovely fall colors! :D How is your back? Take care.
Kiska, That boat is really neat, DH was courious how it got into the woods, too. Did some one haul it there or do you think that it could have actually been a shipwreck?Sharon, Too bad about the moss, but I've gotta give the little critters credit...."inventive" is truely the word! :D
Adina, your house is really shaping up! and glad to see that your DH is really happy about it! :D
Deb, Love that Fern! :D Do you have a pic of it 'unfolded'? I know that some take a while to 'unfold' & some go at it pretty fast.
E_B, Great shot as always...neat lighting! :D

Have a great evening! ;D

Good Morning!

Sideny - That's a gorgeous picture! Where did you take it?
Joey - I kept staring at the plant wondering "what wrong with it?"! I started laughing when I realized what the little wrens had been up to. I thought they were making a nest in the plant like they did last year!

`morning, Dyson -
About the old ship; I've learned that it was hauled there 20 or more, years ago. It is fairly close to the road and at that time, it was just large, cleared area. The person that placed it there, has since passed away. The trees have come up and hemmed it in now. This old cabin was close to it.
Sidney - the photo is wonderful; such rosy colors in such profusion, is beautiful.
music2keep -- 78 yesterday, not bad~~
MySharona - Batten down the hatches once more:) at least the end of the wind is in sight...what a pretty sight, too, to see the butterfly happily perched on the blossom.

E_B: You are sooo good with light.
Sidney: Where's you find those red trees?
Sharon: My thought of "what's missing" was first squirrel then wren. I've caught both pulling out fibers at one time or another. It's cool because you can follow and see where they're building the nurse.

It rained on my roses. :)

I'm happy to be sharing the sky/weather here w/you all ~~thanks for the kudos...
Wow - MySharona - just love what you captured yesterday - the sunset is awesome...
Deb - the rose is equally awesome...so beautiful.
Dyson - I hadn't realized the extent of the drought till now; hope fall will bring relief..
"Here today, gone tomorrow" some of the trees were holding on the leaves.

Kiska: I guess you do get tired of constant daylight. I love the night skies. (31 - oh my!)
Sharon: That's an amazing looking sky. Rainbow at sunrise? Wow!
You've gotten alot of rain. Seems it's either drought or deluge!
We've now had about 1/2" since last evening.

It's pretty warm and muggy, though. I won't complain. Low humidity and cooler temps feel good, but if I have to put up with heat/humidty as a trade off for rain, I'll take it!

Dyson: I will join in with Sharon on some manic rain dancing for you!

Sharon: I've noticed that Cardinals are the night owls of the birds in my garden, too. They are the only ones that come to the feeders at twilight. Neat shot.
Joey: This is the whole fern that sprouted that little fiddlehead I posted a couple of days ago. I don't know yet how cold hardy it is so it's been in a pot all summer so I can move it in when it gets too chilly. "Macho Fern"

It hasn't really stopped raining since this time yesterday. Yahooooo! It's been nice and slow and steady. Total over 24 hrs of 1.5". I hope you get something similar Dyson.

Deb Thats a beautiful rose picture you posted earlier! We have Cardinals all day long, but they show up in spades at dawn and dusk. Did you know the young fiddlehead fern can be eaten? Have you ever eaten any?

Good morning!

Wonderful photos everyone!

Sharon - amazing shots of the golden sky. That photo of the cardinals makes me miss them so much - I love those birds :-) I get a bit "homesick" for Fl when I see them ;-)

Kiska - wonderful photos - very interesting about the ship. So neat how the trees have penned it in over the years.

EB - awesome shots - wonderful scenery you have there :-)

It's raining (still), just a bit breezy, about 17 mph from the SE gusting to 22 mph. 50F.

Well Sharon I can tell you've never seen the yard here. I belong to The Dead Lawn Society and do have some grass.....mostly where I don't want it.
Water got to curb once or twice, but no flooding in this 70 year old development. My house built in 1943 has never been flooded.

Dyson - big step today for you, yay --shall I hope it rains when you get outside:)?
MySharona - not to answer for Deb, but here, we pick wild fiddleneck fern in early June; even have a cookbook named in their honor - love the Lady Margaret and how it attracts the butterflies - keep the camera ready for the monarchs......

Good afternoon, everyone! It's been a busy busy week again here. Today we finally have an "off" day, which I celebrated by finally getting the garden in the front yard cleaned out. I had a sort of "cottage/native plant" theme this year, which looked really nice in May and June but turned quickly into jungle with all of the rain in July. I am moving some of the plants into the backyard along the fence line, and getting rid of some others.. We have a round up next month in College Station, so hopefully I can find people to take some of them. :-) Next spring I need to find some plants that are a little better behaved - or at least shorter. LOL

Selma Run looks very happy and grown up in those skates, Rann.

Did you just say the "s" word, Kiska?? Yikes.. (shiver...) Yep.. I'm sticking to the lizards. LOL

Sidney, I'm glad your back is feeling better. Please keep taking care of yourself!

You, too, Dyson. Have fun on the mower, though. :-)

How's our baby doing, Grammy Joey?

I'm glad you're getting some rain, Deb!! It's about time, too.

Sharon, that rainbow pictures was amazing!!!

Kelli, are you ready for the game(s) tonight? I'm rooting for the Indians and Cubs, so both teams are pretty sure to lose in their first series. LOL We don't have cable, so I can't actually watch the games. Hopefully I'll be able to find one on the radio.

I'm sure I missed people.. Hi, to Adina, E_B, Pati, Blooms, Ric, billyporter, and.. well, everyone else, too!

The pool hasn't been used in years and the dam washed out in the 1960s.) It's a relatively small place, more of a poking around place than a hiking place.

Dyson Thats wonderful news! How did your day go in shoes? Did you get your lawn done? Any rain?
Sidney Why is your lawn dead? You are so lucky you havent had any flooding. So many areas in Jax have lately. I really dont miss living in Jax at all.
Kiska Wow - there is a cookbook for fiddleneck ferns?! Isnt that something! We dont get them here I believe were too far South, but I could be wrong. What do they taste like? Very pretty picture. Snow does not compute!
Marylyn Great to hear from you! Sounds like youve been busy. Ive got to get in the yard, but it keeps raining. Were a tad soggy right now.
Adina Your vines are gorgeous! Great collage!
Deb I love the GFs theyre very friendly will land on your hand, shoes, wherever! Their chrysalis lookslike a dead leaf about 1 long and brown. Be careful when youre pruning or moving things around. Ill try to find one and take a picture for you.

Helluuuu! :D
We had a little rain today (still had to water the flowers) & the temp was 86*! 86* is hot for a normal summer! Oh, well....

Dyson? Did you get all of the rain? I saw on the tv weather map & thought it was headed your way. Did it reach you? 'Hope so.
Kelli, What a great place to go walking! Wow! Love that Cactus Garden! :D Was it you who asked about that one flower that I posted (I think so)...It's a Snapdragon.
Sharon! Love the rainbow! Gee! :D I reacon that everything is getting ready to come south. My hummers haven't left yet, tho. They are usually gone by the end of Sept., but today they were fighting over the feeder, as usual.
Marylyn, JW is doing great...grown 1 inch since the 15th of Sept & gained over 2 pounds. I think that we have a little pig on our hands! :D He was staying up all hours of the night, so the past 3-4 days we've been changing his schedule for him. Grammy's wearing him out & then giving him a bath, just in time for our supper; he's sleeping until about 3:00a.m. The best part is that he is cooing & smiling, without being asleep! :D
Rann, Selma Run is really growing up! She's a very pretty young lady! :D Those cakes look really good...what kind are they?
Sidney, glad to hear that your back is improving...keep up the good work! :D I don't know what a "Dead Lawn Society" is either...I working toward a "no-grass/all flowers" yarn , myself! :D
Deb, I love the fern! Wow! You should see if you can get an ID for it to see how hardy it would be. And the Rose is Bee-u-ti-ful! :D
Adina, Love those MG's! Have you started planning your flower beds for your new house? :D

Joey: that fern is Nephrolepis biserrata 'Macho' (aka, Giant Sword Fern) and it's supposed to only be hardy to 9b. Since I'm 8a, I am pushing it, probably. But I may try keeping it outside pretty far into winter and just watch it carefully. It can get really big, I'm told.
Kelli: Another great tour. Thanks!

We've had nearly 2" of rain over the past 48 hrs. Nice and slow.
