Fireroad walk

Hello,

I have a mish-mash collection of photos from my yard and some from around the lake all taken around the middle of September.

I am not sure of this bird's id, maybe an Eastern PeWee or unknown flycatcher.



During our walk to our lake, it was a beautiful day and an awesome looking sky.



A neat shaped cloud.


My morning glory fence with some pokeberry for the birds mixed in. You have to look hard for our the chained link under all the greenery. We let some of our yard go wild just for the birds and critters.


More Pokeberries.



My moon shot from Sept 14th. I missed the harvest full moon our skies on that day were cloudy!




I hope you enjoyed your visit and my post. I appreciate your nice comments. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Here is a list of linky parties for part of the week, I hope to see you there.

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences.
Thank you to Sylvia, Yogi and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.
Thanks to Tom the host of The Barn Collective

Hi Eileen, I am glad to find out what pokeberries look like. We see a lot of those on our street. How nice that the birds have a safe place in your yard. Clouds prevented us from viewing the moon too so I enjoyed your photo. I know you are enjoying pretty Autumn skies during your walks. Have a nice day.

Good morning Eileen and thanks for taking us around the lake and into your garden for a lovely visit!

The skies are wonderful and the second cloud is almost angelic and so pretty!
Fabulous moon shot also!
Enjoy your day!

I just love morning glories, and your shot of the moon is amazing. Thanks for sharing your great photos.

Tom said...

For some strange reason I've always liked pokeberry.

Jedidja said...

Thanks for sharing that lake with me. I seems to be very large? Nice photograpy. Well done. Have a good day, Eileen!

Sandra said...

I just came from seeing pokeberries in Austrailia, I told her my dad used to get upset because the birds pooped all over anything and everything with pokeberry juice... they are pretty to look at. big beautiful moon

I love a yard with wild edges; the pokeberry is pretty as well as useful to the birdies! I haven't seen the moon for over a month either - if NZ is the land of the long white cloud, Scotland is the land of the permanent grey!!! YAM xx

Hi Eileen! Love the Morning Glory fence and pokeberries. I'm so glad you leave them for the birds. Animals just don't get it when humans rip out the good stuff. *smiles* That moon shot is gorgeous and amazing.
Happy Thursday to you!

Lynne said...

Nice . . . very . . .

Great moon shot.

Tanya Breese said...

pretty photo of the morning glories and poke berries...i have a bunch of poke berries around here too but mine don't look as pretty as yours!

Bev said...

Those pokeberries look interesting!!! Are they edible... I have never heard of them before! Love you moon picture!

Linda W. said...

Lovely sky and moon photos!

Mama Zen said...

Your morning glory looks just like mine!

Breathtaking said...

Hello Eileen!:) Lovely sky shots,...the second one is really beautiful. I wonder if Morning Glory and Pokeweed have a relationship going on,...no kidding. The Pokeweed on the farm grows side by side with Morning Glory, and now I'm seeing it here!!! I think that they may be beneficial to each other. Yours look very beautiful, and I can see the fence just fine. Love the shot of the Pokeberry hanging over the fence.

jandi said...

It is a gorgeous setting! Wonderful flowers and moon shots! Have a beautiful weekend!

Linda said...

Beautiful series, Eileen, and your moon shot is fantastic!!! I hope you are having a great week. Thank you so much for sharing. :)

Denise inVA said...

I like your mish-mash photos Eileen. A nice selection. My critter photos will be from my archives again this Saturday. I haven't had a chance to take any and it's pouring with rain, has been for the last few days. Good for the gardens though :) Enjoy your day!

Photo Cache said...

I love to see bushes (especially rose) overtaking a fence, what a lovely sight.

Worth a Thousand Words

Deb from frugal little bungalow said...

I have had that 'weed' appear in my yard / garden never sure what it was ....
The pokeberry!!
Mystery solved! :)

Love that moon shot!!! Have a nice weekend.

Happyone said...

Love that you let some of your yard go wild for the birds and critters. : )
You always have the best moon pictures!!!

Lowcarb team member said...

Some lovely photo's Eileen, I especially like your second one, and agree it is a neat shaped cloud in your third one. Sometimes it is lovely to take time out and gaze at the clouds and the shapes they can make.

Enjoy the remainder of September - October is just around the corner!

All the best Jan

TexWisGirl said...

Debbie said...

loved your first image. i would not have seen the bird had i not been reading!!! your moon capture is, as always, spectacular!!!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I got a pre harvest moon shot also. Yours is really really sharp.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You take the best moon shots, Eileen! The clouds remind me of angels. Have a good weekend!

pattisjarrett said...

A pokeberry plant grew near the fence at the back of the yard. When I learned it was poisonous, I got rid of it. There appears to be one growing on the property line with our neighbor. They have several small children, so I'll check on that tomorrow while it is fresh in mind. So glad you shared this today.

Suzanne Prickett said...

Hi Eileen, I've never heard of Pokeberries. They are really lovely with your morning glory fence. Your lake and skies are really beautiful-a nice walk. Have a great end of week.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Hello Eileen! This is a fun series of photos and it's hard to pick a favorite! But I think I'll say the blue skies, after such a gloomy cloudy dreary day!

Martin Kloess said...

I enjoyed my stroll with you.
Till next tine...

Wonderful views, nice moon photo!

The Yum List said...

I know I've mentioned this before, but I really am amazed every time I see your moon shots. It's incredible what technology we have in our hands these days. Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead. :-)

Uppal said...

The bird ensconced on the top looks so cute!

Karen S. said...

I remember the name of that road, and as I also remember, it's a lovely place to wander about! Pretty captures.

Bob Bushell said...

Oh Eileen, the morning glory is so beautiful, and the moon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, As always, you have posted some neat photos! I always especially enjoy your moon photos. I have tried to get some good shots of the moon from my deck and have found it to be a bit harder than I would have expected. On a good clear night the full moon is so bright that it becomes a challenge to get the exposure right, even for the automatic setting. My larger camera has a zoom up to equilivent 400mm but I can't get as sweet a photo as you do. I wonder what power of lens you are using? I also enjoyed your flower, sky, and bird photos. Thanks for sharing! Have a happy weekend ahead!

Our photos said...

Cloudia said...

Marveloso, Eileen. I love your wispy orange angel clouds
