The neighborhood


Hello,

Happy Fall Y'all!






These are some scenes from one of our walks to our lake. This trail takes us past our neighbor's place, they are raising turkeys to be sold for Thanksgiving.


You can see some of the temporary fencing they have to keep the turkeys from running off and escaping into the woods.


We walk down the fire road to the lake, the sky was looking beautiful.







The geese are not in focus but I mainly love the colors in the clouds and sky.


It was nice to see a colorful sky for once, this may have been close to when Hermine was passing by on the coast of Maryland.

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

Hello Eileen! We used to raise turkeys and boy, can they make a racket! These have a very nice open space behind the fence!
The sky shots are absolutely stunning in the soft sunset colours!
Have a lovely day!

Love the shot of the lake, Eileen.

Fall is coming and I'm more than ready. Looking forward to the first frost to knock down all the mosquitoes around here.

Early morning or Sunset? Either way the sky is beautiful and the Turkeys are plump. I can't believe we can even be thinking about Thanksgiving already. Nice series ... nice walk to the lake :)

I love the pic with the geese, Eileen!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

The geese are just beautiful in that colorful sky! But the turkeys...run run run! hahaha! Enjoy your day sweet friend. I wish you had been with me today to go down to the pond. I saw a big flock of ducks swimming in a long row and then all of a sudden I looked up...and saw an eagle! I was in awe!!! Hugs!

Ranten said...

Hei Eileen! Nice pictures of the birds and the sky! Happy weekend to you!

Linda W. said...

Lovely sky colors!

Prunella Pepperpot said...

Happy Fall to you too Eileen!!
Those sky shots are spectacular. Love the one with the geese. You can hear them before you see them.
Poor turkeys. A friend had a goose that she was fatening up for Christmas one year He was so adorable and friendly. I wouldn't have been able to kill him let alone eat him.
Have a wonderful weekend :)

Judy Biggerstaff said...

Beautiful pics. Great shots of the turkeys and the cloud. The geese shot is interesting with the sky color. Hope you are having a great week. I've been watching my hummers this week. Only the female remain.

Irene said...

Happy fall to you too! Gorgeous sky shots, awesome colors! And I love the birds passing through your image :)

Lovely shots and great skies, so Pink!

Lowcarb team member said...

What a cheery welcome to your post ... I like it!

Beautiful view of the lake and sky.
But those pinks in the sky in your last three pictures are just so lovely, I think they are my favourites.

Happy Autumn (or should I say Fall!)

All the best Jan

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Hi Eileen - love those beautiful pink clouds and the flying geese! The view of the water is wonderful. Glad those turkeys have no idea what's coming.....:0 xx Karen

Ruth Kelly said...

Gorgeous series, especially the sky. My neighbor has been growing 3 turkeys in with their lamb's pen this year. It is fun to drive by and see them. I imagine they will all disappear - they have a large family on a 100 year old farm.

Polly said...

Beautiful photos.

J said...

"Happy Fall Y'all!" to YOU, too, Eileen! I remember the turkeys from last year. How wonderful that they are free range. You have a beautiful neighborhood with lots of interesting nature filling every corner!

Missy George said...

Happy FAll to you as well..Sunsets are beginning to look like fall!!

Mama Zen said...

Love those sky shots, Eileen!

Smareis said...

Hello Eileen,
I love your sky, I saw on the net the fabulous one in NY on the 21 of this month, it was absolutely out of this world!
Your turkeys are fun!
Warm hugs and enjoy the end of the week

Beautiful pictures specially in which birds are flying in queue. Thanks for sharing. Good day.

Elaine said...

My favourite season of the year. Those colourful skies are a delight, especially with the geese, though they never seem able to fly quietly!

Seraphinas Phantasie said...

You live in such a lovely area.

I'd start to get attached to the turkeys and re-think my Thanksgiving menu! :)

Ida said...

Such different looking turkeys. It makes me a little sad to know they won't be around much longer (even though I do enjoy eating turkey).
Lovely lake sky shots.

Heather said...

Love that fiery color in the clouds.
