I had another barn scheduled for Sepia Scenes, but thought it was a little much to post a barn two days in a row. So, I scheduled it for another day and got this one ready. I put out a couple hills of gourds, and now have about 30 gourds drying. Two or three were almost totally dry when I cut them off the vine. We shall see how they develop.

I am in a hurry and this was all I could find right quick for Ruby Tuesday....however, I am getting tired of posting the same type of photo every other week. Everyone else signs on with awesome pictures, and I feel like I post the same thing over and over. Sitting here, I see something to photograph for next week. In the meantime, I am going with this barn. It sure looks like a lot of life happens in it. I would love to nose around inside it and see what all I could see. But since I can't, I am posting it for this week's Ruby Tuesday. If you want to join, or just see what others post, click on the badge at the top and visit Mary T's Work of the Poet blog.
I could not get a better view of this...I was standing at the edge of strip pit on a steep bank...yet I could not resist trying because of how the light was reflecting off the water and hitting the leaves. I just love the way the color is arriving on this blackberry briar.
I plan on adding this to the list at MaryT's Work of the Poet/Ruby Tuesday post...if you want to join click the badge.
There was just something about this that I liked...if I can remember I am going to add this to the Mellow Yellow page. If you want to join, or see more photos featuring yellow, Please click the badge at the bottom of the page. I wish I had thought and saved the previous post for Mellow Yellow Monday.
I am pretty sure this is one of the sulfur butterflies, but not sure which one. It went from one yellow flower to another. While it is true that most of the flowers there were yellow, there were some white ones as well but it seemed to choose yellow every time.
This is the first time I have noticed this kind of dragonfly in real life...I have seen them on other's blogs...at least I think I have. I haven't taken time to really check for sure, but the blogs I plan to check out later is Mary's Faith, Fabric, and Photos and EG's East Gwillimbury Wow blog...I know they have both had some amazing captures of dragonflies.
Another sign that autumn is well on its way. I fear that it is not going to be as pretty this fall as it has been the past two or three years. Some of the things I see changing color is just not as pretty as it normally is, so when I see nice color, I want to stop and capture it while it is available.
This is the one and only quilt my older daughter made...when she was still in college. She made the blocks, and I had her do them in a quilt as you go method. After she got them made, I set them together and did the binding for her. If I remember correctly it is about 60 inches square.
And being that there is red in it, I thought I would use it for Ruby Tuesday...to join click the badge at the bottom of this post
These leaves are on the cottonwood tree across the street....just a few of its leaves are turning. I notice some of the maple trees over on the next street have more of a start than the cottonwoods. I so enjoy autumn--even if it does mean winter is not far behind.
This was taken last summer, northwest of Clinton, Indiana. I don't know how you feel about a sky like this, but I can never get enough of them. I cannot remember when I started always watching the sky, but I know I had started when I was in high school.
This is one of my other babies...this is the second cat I have had named Cougar. I honestly tried to name him something else, but kept slipping and calling him Cougar. So Cougar he became. And he does have some traits my original Cougar had: he likes tomatoes, I am his favorite person, he often wants me to come outside and play with him. You know what I mean--he will scratch at the door or window and when I open the door he looks at me and walks away. And will do it over and over sometimes.
This is from out at the strip pits....on my other blog I have pictures from here. At least one was almost from this exact same spot. I just love all these sunflowers and wondered how they came to be there. Was it birds that spread them, or was it people?
I try to give up taking certain types of pictures, but never seem to be able to do it. Thistle is one of a few subjects that I find hard to resist. This was taken out at the strip pits today. As anyone knows who ever looks/reads my regular blog very often, the strip pit area is a favorite place for me to go.
How would you like to meet one of these? I really don't know what kind of personality they have...maybe depends on how their owners treat them. We saw these down in southern Indiana yesterday. I wish these had been closer to the road...I would have liked to focus on just one or two cows.
Some of you may not know that I worked at an apple orchard for almost 20 years. I usually go out at least once a year to take pictures, but have not did it this year due to babysitting Lorelei. However, I thought I would post this picture of Molly's Delicious apples. The one below is one I worked on with Photoshop Elements 2 and posted on Paintbox Pictures. I hope you will click on it for the better view of it. When the meme opens, click on the badge at the bottom of this post to see more Ruby Tuesday posts, or to join and share yours.
This is from a B&W photo, taken in Tennessee at the Museum of Appalachia. I ran across it and others the other day and thought what a great sepia scene it would make. If you want to join MaryT's Sepia Scenes meme, please click http://sepiascenes.blogspot.com/.
