Flower Child

 Pulling out of a parking lot, we spotted this car in a parking space. I was glad I had my camera. I have never seen one like it. I wonder if they used stencils?

When buying a used car, punch the buttons on the radio. If all the stations are rock and roll, there's a good chance the transmission is shot.

Another Baby!

 The evening we spotted something remarkable! A juvenille Black Crowned night Heron! You may remember earlier this summer I posted a glimpse of one. And apparently the Herons have had yet another chick! 

The thing is, it was past sunset, and we were a distance away, on the other side of a chain link fence! Having said that, here is an awful photo of the parent! The parent was underneath the chick by the water, and it looked like it was trying to teach baby to fish! Wish I could have captured them both together.

Indian Summer?

 Wednesday was the first day of Astrological Autumn. But you would never kow it by looking around. It has remained very hot, and things are now starting to re-bloom! Climate change? Here is our Hydrangea now.

And here is our liliac bush, just starting to bloom AGAIN! Not that I'm complaining; I really miss the flowers and green grass in the dark of winter.

The rest are from around the neighborhood.

A Hibiscus, one of many still in full bloom.

The Moonflower bush.

The Best Of The Rest

Though I was not able to photograph the Harvest Moon, I found some stunning photos of it online! Here they are.

Midnight Madness

I did NOT get any photos of the beautiful full Harvest Moon. It has been raining and very cloudy. However, I do have some kind of spooky full moon shots that I snapped awhile ago.

"There are pumpkins aplenty, heaped at roadside stands, glowing in orange beauty on rural doorsteps, even lying like full moons in the fields."

Riders On The Storm

The jet trail of a plane heading into a fearsome cloud! I was glad we were on firm ground only watching.

Sunday Sunset

 Though it doesn't look like it, these are in order of the setting sun.

As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is his love to those who fear him. And as far as sunrise is from sunset, he has separated us from our sins. As parents feel for their children, God feels for those who fear him.
