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

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.

  3. 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.

  16. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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. : )

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

  38. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  40. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great moon shot and choice for skywatch

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

    ReplyDelete
  43. 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!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  53. 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.

  56. 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.:)

  58. Hi Eileen,

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

  59. That seems like a wonderful day. Great shots.

    ReplyDelete
  60. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  62. You are so busy on your way to work.

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

    Squirrels and raccoons: always trying to scam the birdfeeders.

  64. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  65. 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

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

  67. Terrific shots, especially that moon.

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

    ReplyDelete
  69. 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
