We have grey squirrels here and I was relaxing in my easy chair and looked out the kitchen window and saw this guy on the top of our play structure roof. It's 75 feet away.. I pulled out my Lumix and zoomed in and snapped this shot. I just googled and this might be an Eastern Fox Squirrel. Hmm. What kind of squirrels do YOU have?
I volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday with my friend Shirley. The best part of our time there is meeting interesting new people. Jacob Looper came in yesterday and we started chatting and he showed me this nice photo he'd taken with his phone using the panorama feature. I asked him if he could text it to me and if I could share it on my blog and he said yes. Isn't this a great shot? He is a musician and singer so it was a fun conversation. He'd bought a flute in the gift shop and I asked him to play a tune on it and he did!! What fun!!
Dayle came to pick me up and on our way home I pulled over by this big cabbage field on the south side of the road. It's there every year. I think it's beautiful in it's symmetry and blue-green color.
Sometimes they put in rows of red cabbage too.. but the green must be their best cash crop. Soon we'll see cabbages on the side of the road as they fall off the trailer they use to haul the cabbage to market. :-) I have often thought that they sell it to a local sauerkraut cannery. I might have to get to the bottom of this!
Aren't they beautiful! I often wish they'd sell some to us locals as I'd love to make some home made cole slaw with it. I might have to find out about that.. too!
When we neared home I pulled over for Dayle to hop out of the car to get the mail.. and used my iPhone to snap a photo of the barn. Our son who has moved into his own home has left his car hauler trailer in our pasture. I've asked him to move it.. it simply does not look scenic in front of our pretty barn. LOL!
Meantime, I'll just crop it out. HA! That big tree you see is a Walnut and the ones on the right are Birch. The two little ones on the left are green Japanese Maples which were a gift from my blog friend Kathy who no longer blogs. The big green thing behind them are black bamboo.
I'm not swimming today as we have our housekeeper coming and Dayle will be gone to his annual physical. I will burn calories doing some tidying and decorating for Halloween. :-) What are you up to today?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
