Rain is very important. That is why I am glad we got rain on Wednesday November 5th. A LOT of rain. Matter of fact it began raining Tuesday evening around 5:00 and hasn’t stopped in 23 hours. I was going to go deer hunting today. I was going to walk for at least a couple of hours today. I ended up doing 5 loads of laundry, helping the mail lady get out of the ditch and making a scarecrow in the barn. In-between the torrential down-pours I darted out to grab a few shots to share with you.
Here is what I saw.
I saw myself and when I did I thought I look like M and M (the white rapper dude whose name I’ve NO idea how to spell). Or maybe I look like I just broke out of jail. OR maybe that is the same thing! Anyway, I got Addie to take my picture, looking all Maydelle gangster with no make-up and my husbands hunting clothes on. “Hi”
The next thing I saw was my very wet black silkie.
When I spied this I thought someone had sprayed foam insulation on my box elder tree……Nope. A crazy weird mushroom.
Odd, huh? This tree also sported the following about 8 feet high…..
And this tree isn’t even dead, normally things such as this are growing on dead trees.
Maybe it is about to die?
The Lantana I transplanted in front of the chicken pen decided to FINALLY bloom. In November.
Not sure if this is a berry or a nut but I thought it was attractive.
Jelly Fungi. I’m sure this has a proper name but I’ve called it ‘jelly fungi’ since I was like 5 and jelly fungi it shall remain.
If I were a bird I think I’d want to eat this.
A huge clump of mushrooms in danger of drowning because of this…..
We have a pond every time it rains more than 2 inches in 24 hours.
Me and my legs in said pond.
A spider trying to avoid a boat ride.
The colors of nature never cease to amaze me, God is a brilliant artist.
This was on a dead stump.
And this on a downed log.
This is an old pine limb, beginning to rot.
And this is a mushroom, growing out the side of a very old hay bale in the woods.
The train came by while I was out…….
The season shall soon reveal only bare limbs but until that time let’s enjoy the splendor!
A vine growing on the fence, it attracted a lot of butterflies a few months ago but now is preparing for the winter months.
Until next week…
Thanks for joining me today!
