Just another day

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  and NF Winged



This is how my day is from beginning to end.. Starting with my walk to work after parking the car, scenes from my drive home and the moon rising in the evening..Oh, I can not forget the birdies on my deck.. I usually have to re-fill the feeders when I come home from work because the birds squirrels ate all the food..


Everyone morning I pass by this church fence with the pretty Crepe Myrtle, next photo is a fence in between the fountains and City Hall.



I pass by this barn and fence to and from work..I always check out the opening, I am expecting to see a Barn owl sitting there one day..

And for my NF Winged post, I am sharing some of my yardbirds..the wings of the hummingbird, an American Goldfinch, cute Chipping Sparrow and my Poppa Eastern Bluebird.


 I am sure these are jet contrails.. I just have never seen five together like this, pretty cool sight.


 The sky and moon over my house..


The First Quarter moon on Aug 4, 2014.. The moon is in the zodiac sign Scorpio. Don't forget to check out the full moon on August 10th.

I hope you enjoyed my post and photos
To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences
and for anything that has wings check out NF Winged

Thanks to Tex @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday also thanks to Monica of NF Winged!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

Hi Eileen great selection of fences and loved the Hummer and of course the moon shot. Off to the swimming pool now with the grands!

Nancy J said...

That crepe Myrtle is stunning, 5 contrails, and bird feeders, the red one is fascinating. ( I do hope it is indeed a feeder!!) Cheers, Jean.

i enjoy this post, Eileen. always a mosaic makes me happy. but i am one who is easy to be pleased.

Looks like your days are filled with beauty from beginning to end. I love that Eastern Bluebird!

Phil Slade said...

Someone after my own heart Eileen - Birding from dawn to dusk. I hope you see a Barn Owl in that opening, it sure looks perfect. It's good to see your Bluebirds still "at it".

Amy Burzese said...

All great things to see in a day's time.

EG CameraGirl said...

Keep watching for that owl, Eileen. I bet you WILL see one someday!

Blackberry Lane said...

I enjoy "walking along" with you. Beautiful photos, Eileen. Have a nice day.

Karen S. said...

Oh my, what a relaxing and beautiful way to begin your day and end it as well. Is that the city hall in the first photo? Very pretty building.

TexWisGirl said...

The crepe myrtle does a lot to soften the look of the brick and wrought iron fence. I love the old barn - hope you see that barn owl some day.

MitchyLR said...

Wonderful shot, Eileen!! Love all the birds, particularly the Goldfinch and the Bluebird. Fabulous shot of the moon, too!!

bj said...

I always love seeing your great photos.

Small City Scenes said...

Excellent post. I like everything you see coming and going to work.

The jet contrails are interesting--the 5. I am looking forward to the Sunday Super Moon.

Hi Eileen,
Beautiful morning walk to the work.
The day could not start better, I think.
Beautiful collage of birds, and the moon is also lovely.

Ileana said...

I love morning walk! Beautiful pictures . Your moon is amazing!

The bedroom has been getting lighter and lighter as the Moon gets fuller and fuller. It would be nice to see a Barn Owl sitting there!!!...:)JP

Debbie said...

awesome capture of the moon!!!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Lovely birds and pretty skies. I've never taken photos of what I see on my way to work. That could be fun to try though.

Sue said...

Hi Eileen
My, that's a beautiful barn. I just love those old weathered ones--and the details on them are so nice. So much better than our modern steel buildings!
Have a great day

janiceadcock said...

Never seen shutters on a barn before. All lovely photos.

Montanagirl said...

Wow - some great photography in this post!!

Gail Dixon said...

I enjoyed seeing snippets of your day. That old barn with the stone foundation is amazing. Hope you do get to see an owl there one day!

Happyone said...

Love the old barn, but who doesn't love an old barn. : )
Nice colorful birds. I have to fill my bird feeders quite often too. But it's worth it to see the birds. : )

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Came for your Good Fence and found a really Good moon shot. Well done. Thank you for vising my Old/New Good Fence

Our photos said...

Very nice. I love the barn !

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Lovely images, Eileen! Love the old barn. Hope you get to see that owl!

Sylvia K said...

I do love the contrails and what a terrific capture of the moon!! Hope you have a great weekend, Eileen!!

Icy BC said...

Beautiful post with beautiful photos to see, Eileen! Love the bird collage!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Eileen, You have a great drive (and walk) to and from work... Isn't it fun to get out during all times of the day to take pictures???? We have a huge squirrel problem also.. In fact, we put our bird food AWAY when we are gone from home. Otherwise, who knows what would be left????ha

Great set of pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

Carver said...

Lovely shots of the day.

diane b said...

You sure ess some nice things in your day. How do you get such a great shot of the moon.?

HansHB said...

Nice photos for SWF!

DrillerAA09 said...

Great image of the moon. I guess I'm going to have to put that on my bucket list since I seem to never get around to photographing the full moon when the best ones are in the night sky. Well done.

Jane Hards Photography said...

Great moon shot and choice for skywatch

ellen b. said...

Such a wonderful variety of beauty you are sharing with us today.
Love the barn and the birds and and ....

Marie said...

What perfect morning sights! That barn is incredible! I love the birds who visit your feeders, and the entire way to and from work is lovely! Great photos.

You might want to check out about the contrails. Contrails actually dissipate because they contain vapor. These are chemtrails being sprayed deliberately. They last a long time and keep the sun from causing evaporation. Look it up...you'll be amazed!

NatureFootstep said...

I love that barn. Almost expected it to fall over. :) But I guess it will not. :)

Larry D said...

Lovely day, great photos!

Photo Cache said...

what a fine idea to document in pictures what you see in the course of the day.

Worth a Thousand Words

Michelle said...

That is a great, old barn.

Felicia said...

gorgeous views you see to and from work Eileen. Thanks for sharing.

Marie-Anne said...

You have a lovely variety of views on your way to and back from your work, dear Eileen! Thanks for sharing your nice pictures!
I wish you a happy weekend!

Hi Eileen, what a great idea, documenting your day in pictures. You've got some neat shots, did you take the last one of the moon? Spectacular.

DeniseinVA said...

This is a fantastic post Eileen, so many things to focus on. Always enjoyable. Thank you and have a great weekend :)

Brian King said...

Beautiful photos! The barn stole the show for me! I really like the stone foundation!

Vee said...

What a lovely drive you take. That is a great barn and I hope you do see that owl one day!

Jim said...

Great shots.

The happy wanderer. said...

A lovely way to share part of your day which is interesting for those of us from other parts of the world. I had some lovely sunsets on my recent trip and thought of you!

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Another very enjoyable post! I came over for the fence entry, but every image is wonderful! I LOVE THE BARN! Beautiful birds. All those contrails - wonder if the Blue Angels were flying? :) Gorgeous moon - I hope we have clear skies for the super moon. Plus, there are supposed to be meteor showers at the same time!

Visiting from Good Fences.

Susan (ABON) said...

They're all great photos, but I really like the barn and the moon. Hope your weekend is a great one!

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Beautiful post! Perfect exposure and focus on the moon shot!

Breathtaking said...

Hello Eileen!:) Couldn't resist coming over to see your post, even though I'm squinting with one eye,... no specs yet!! Beautiful views as you walk to work, and that barn is fabulous.
The birds in your yard are always a pleasure to see, and a spectacular moon shot.
Have a great weekend.:)

Irene said...

Wow, I love your moon shot!

Happy Friday, Eileen!

Poppy said...

Hi Eileen,

Just getting to your place of work is a sensory adventure in itself! Those birdies are too cute!!

Happy weekend!

Poppy

charuhasacharya said...

That seems like a wonderful day. Great shots.

Laloofah said...

What a lovely and varied commute you have! And what lovely and varied bird visitors you have! :-)
Those contrails make me suspect that the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels were doing a flyover when you weren't looking! ;-)

And wow, that moon shot is sublime! It looks like a NASA photo!

LV said...

A wonderful variety presentation. I love them all, but especially the one of the church and pretty flowers.

rainfield61 said...

You are so busy on your way to work.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I love that moon! And the birdies, of course.

Squirrels and raccoons: always trying to scam the birdfeeders.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I'm always looking up! The jet contrails are very neat! And you saw some good fences and pretty birds, too. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Lovely views on your morning walk! The crepe myrtle is wonderful - I don't see them growing here in Washington often. Barn windows always hold such mystery to me, too. Sweet birds and the contrails are very interesting. We had the blue angels here last weekend - perhaps they were on their way home! Beautiful moon photos, too. It is in my 'house' (Scorpio) xo Karen

Charlotta said...

Pretty birds and a magnificant moon. Have a nice weekend!

fredamans said...

Terrific shots, especially that moon.

Lynne said...

LOVED your city fences . . .
and the entire post . . .
You have the best pictures of the moon . . . I am looking forward to Sunday eve . . .

September Violets said...

You have such a pretty drive to work, and also the walk into work! Love that old barn, but I just want to prop a couple of poles underneath the overhang ;) A barn owl in that opening would be perfect. You have lots of feathery friends at your feeders. This afternoon I saw lots of goldfinches, chickadees, robins & mourning doves. I wonder if they're starting to gather for migration already? Hope not. Enjoy your weekend Eileen (we were noticing the moon tonight, just a smidgeon from a full moon). Wendy x

thomas said...

Love the nice old barn.

orchid Miyako said...

I finally could enjoy your GORGEOUS day with your wonderful pictures, Dear friend Eileen♡♡♡

I took moon shot yesterday but no comparison with yours p;)

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Maria said...

We also get the Crepe Myrtles here. Aren’t they beautiful? You sure have documented your flora well.
