MishMash


I have a list below of memes I am joining for this week, and to save time I am doing one post for all. They are all fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun  and check out some of the participating posts. Special thanks to all the wonderful host and their memes, I hope you have some time to check them out.

I am sharing a mish-mash or medley of images from October and November. Most of these images are from our neighborhood or the bike trail, some yard birds and moon captures.



I have not yet shared my hubby's shot of the super moon taken on Oct 26. It is beautiful. The moon is rising over the watershed forest and our lake.


On the same evening as above the moon's reflection on our lake.


A mosaic of a Northern Flicker seen on a tree across from our driveway. Not the best shots, I took them from our kitchen window.

 Some of my backyard and feeder birds, top row a female Purple Finch, Downy Woodpecker. Bottom row a Carolina Wren and the Carolina Chickadee.


Scenes from the NCR bike trail. Top row is a Great Blue Heron next to the river and a white barn. Bottom Row is the Gunpowder River and another barn.


For Tom's Barn Collective we see many barns and farm land around our Mason-Dixon area neighborhood. These cut-outs are popular around our neighborhood, this one above reminds me of the Marlboro Man.



Last but not least, my Great Nephew Neill who just turned 2 and his new baby sister Sonja.

I hope you enjoyed my mish-mash post and images. As always I appreciate your visits and nice comments. Thank you! Have a happy day and new week ahead!

Thanks for visiting my post and as always I appreciate your comments.

Such sweet babies. I always enjoy a visit to your neighborhood, especially the lovely bird photos.

Andrea Priebe said...

You certainly served up a meal of Mish-Mash ... Delicious, Eileen. Your lake offers you many beautiful pictures and your surroundings seem to have endless opportunity. Congrats to your husband on his wonderful moon shot. Your combining everything is a smart move ... I am guessing you are as busy as the rest of us getting ready for Christmas. And, can't forget the cuties ... your niece and nephew are adorable, but I think you know that already. Hope your Holidays are wonderful, Eileen ...
