Our World, My World

Happy Monday,

It was an a busy and exciting weekend with my son's wedding and now we are dog-sitting the grand-dogs for a week. These are images from Oct 1st and 2nd. I saw at least 8 Monarch Butterflies in my yard, YAY finally. 



The Monarchs seem to love the butterfly bush. 







We took a walk on the local fire road on 10/2. The birds have a lot of different berries to, our Lantana is still blooming, there are a little fall colors around here and there. The ferns are seen all along the fire road. 



The Carolina Wrens are always seen around my yard.




Dark blue or purple berries, not sure of the id? Maybe Serviceberry?


A view looking down the fire road. 


Some nuts growing on a tree near the bamboo I found while on another day and walk. 


A different berries, these seem to be all around the forest. I am guessing maybe Viburnum?


I saw 3 Pileated Woodpeckers flying from tree to tree, I assume they were a family. 






Looking up, at the trees and sky!


A few photos from my son Brian and his bride Allie, the wedding was at the Wyndham Resort in Gettysburg PA.




Thanks for visiting and commenting, have a happy day and a great new week!

  10. So glad you are seeing some Monarchs...we are seeing a few along, but still nothing like last year. Or the year before. I hear a Carolina wren quite often, but don't see it often. They are my favorite bird...just makes me happy to hear them.

    I need to look up those names for the berries...not because I doubt your ID, but just to see more about them.

  16. We both took looking up pictures. Like minds I guess. We lucked out with our RV trip having rain only at night. Now that we are home the stronger storm has arrived. I do love sleeping in the RV listening to the rain patter on the roof. It's the same up at the cabin with the tin roof. Here in town it is sometimes hard to tell if it is raining or not unless you look out at the road. - Margy

  21. I haven't seen any Monarchs for a few days now so I think they have all left us! It has been a good year for them here.
    I assume that is you in the pic with your son - your dress is gorgeous, Eileen!

  28. First of all, congratulations on the wedding of your son. I wish him and his bride a very happy and long life together. The photos you shared of them are very heartwarming and her gown was gorgeous. I believe butterflies are symbols for new beginnings so the photos of them are a lovely start to your post. I enjoyed them all as always. Thank you Eileen and enjoy a great week.

  43. I love all of the butterfly pictures! We planted a butterfly bush a couple of years ago. It's still pretty small, but I can't for it to grow and attract butterflies.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Are those almonds? I like thinking wild almonds grow somewhere. Your monarch photos are very vibrant and colorful. We have a purple butterfly bush that is feeding more butterflies, including monarchs,this year. I'm glad of that. Cheers, Eileen! :-)

  53. Hello! Glad to see your latest posts. Autumn is here and all our butterflies have gone to rest!
    I send an invitation for Blogger's Sunday Walk to everyone who has joined some time ago. Participating has now become easier via InLinkz. The intention is the same: “to detach” bloggers from the computer screen for a while to use their legs, and then share the experiences of the trip. There will be an unpretentious photo assignment as well. Would have been really nice if you join us the last Sunday in October. I intend to have a post the Monday before to inform about BSW Fall 2019. Welcome, best regards Vilt og vakkert.

    Here you can see the latest arrangement BSW Summer 2019:
