Election Day is Finally Here

I am really, really, REALLY glad November 4 has finally arrived. Not because I've been chomping at the bit to cast my vote, but because I am so sick of reading about it in the paper/on the Web, hearing about it on the radio, seeing billboards, etc.

I couldn't resist posting this video, though. My Mom sent it to me. It's cute. And timely. And is great fodder for my Blog.

I just haven't had much to say since my last post on Halloween. Not that a lot hasn't happened. Just not a lot of Blogworthy stuff.

Although I guess I could mention that autumn has finally arrived in my backyard. Saturday, despite the fact that it was oddly warm outside (about 75), I took some pictures. I'll share a few here.

At left is the "bigger picture" view.

Nice, but not overly dramatic.

You have to get out there. Look closely. Stop and appreciate the spectacular color while you can.

My yard really isn't all that big. Just under 1/3 acre, I think. But by actually going outside, looking closely and from different angles, I got some pretty cool images.

Like this one...

This is a close-up of a beautyberry bush. From afar, it is quite unremarkable.

I like all the greens in the image below.

And here's a close-up of a dwarf burning bush.

  1. Did you say "cute"? (-:

    That's okay, honey. Only REAL men aren't afraid to say that word!


Please say something...
