Around the yard_Oct 14

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  and NF Winged

 My entries for Tex's Good Fences, NF Winged and Skywatch Friday.. These are some images from around the yard during the last week or so.. The moon shots were taken early on Sunday morning..the birds are seen everyday in or around my yard..




For NF Winged I have a couple of woodpeckers from my yard.. The Redbellied Woodie always lets me know when he is around, I will put out some peanuts for him..


I think I spooked the Pileated Woodie away from my yard today.  He went squawking across the yard and landed on one of larger trees in the back yard.. 



The next two shots are for Skywatch Friday..  The moon setting on Sunday morning...



 A colorful sunrise on Sunday morning..


Looking down my neighbors driveway, they have a beautiful and colorful trees. The autumn colors have been looking gorgeous..My neighbors fence was a nice capture for Tex's Good Fences meme.




When we moved into our house almost 25 years ago hubby planted a lot of pine trees. They have grown very large and have become a safe haven for my yard birds to hide.. On this shot you can see our fence and neighbors fence on the other side..


Some Autumn trees around our lake, the skies were gray but the colorful trees are pretty.  Not a bad day in the neighborhood.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.

Beautiful lake scene! I love pine trees and how quickly they grow. Perfect for wildlife refuge.

Hi Eileen
Stunning autumn colours in the last photo. I don't understand why both you and your neighbour put a fence between the properties, it's odd to see two.
Have a great weekend!
