Hi there! Remember me?
Frank and I have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride while house hunting, these past several weeks. We thought we found our beautiful waterfront home, but the inspection was done last week and it revealed a few surprises that we weren't willing to accept.
So the search continues and so will my infrequent blog visits. Posts of the Week will continue to be on hold for the time being. I apologise for that.
I will try to get a few posts scheduled though, now that I have uploaded, sorted through and readied several dozen photos taken over the end of the summer and throughout September and October.
The following images are from the end of August.
One of the few good things about summer coming to an end and the days getting shorter, is that you don't have to be awake at a ridiculous hour to see a sunrise. Benny and I experienced this one together while on our morning walk.
Winged insects seem to be particularly busy when the fall flowers begin to bloom.
Let's get up close and personal with this buzzing beauty.
Another late-summer flower is the black-eyed Susan. There's a lovely patch of them near Frank's place.
Why not get up close and personal with this blossom, too? Why not, indeed!
Berries ripen just in time to greet the migrating birds as they return to, or pass through these parts.
I'm sure that these will attract a few takers. I was tempted by them, myself.
A tiny damselfly posed nicely for me in the late-day sunlight. Thankfully, it was unaware of Benny's prancing just a few steps away.
And another wee one. The blade of grass might give you some idea of just how little it is.
There isn't a much nicer way to end the day than with clear skies and a near-full summer moon shining from above.
More coming up soon.
