Good Fences #136 - Autumn Leaves and Fences & Little Things Thursday

Welcome!  - Joining in today for Good Fences & Little Things Thursday. 

In order to do both memes I've combined the post so please scroll down for Little Things Thursday.

It's time for some GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from,
The Run-a-Round Ranch Report.

Yesterday for Seasons  I featured Autumn Leaves and Berries so in keeping with the Autumn theme I am sharing Autumn Leaves and Fences today.  Yes each photo will have a fence in it somewhere.

Last week the Ginko tree up the street was still pretty and green.  I love how the sun is shining on the leaves and they are cascading over the fence.

This week the leaves have turned a golden yellow and by next week most of the tree will be bare of any leaves.

Golden leaves of a neighborhood birch tree glisten in the sunlight as they cascade over a fence.  - Actually 2 fences are in this shot.

A rainbow of colors from Virginia Creeper creeping ovr a fence in the neighborhood.

Down a nearby alley some grape leaves cascade over a fence in glorious fall colors.

Spotted this colorful fall scene on a recent walk.  That grass has a checkerboard apperance.  Can you find 2 fences & a gate in this shot.

So there you have it - Autumn Leaves & Fences. - Don't forget to check out the other great fences by stopping in at Theresa's Blog.


Now let's join Tamar (Random-osity) for:


Earlier this week I was taking a walk and spotted a cat on someone's porch.  I love taking pictures of cats (not just our own) so I snapped a photo of the cat.  I only got a chance for one photo because it decided the food bowl was more interesting then looking at me. 

However....when I got home and downloaded the photo's I had a little surprise.  See if you can figure out what it was.

Cropping a little closer...I bet you can figure it out now.

Okay just in case....

How fun to discover this cat had 2 different colored eyes. - It's the "little things" like this that make me happy.

Don't forget to visit Tamar's blog & check out the other participants. 

Have a great day.

Seasons - Autumn Leaves and Berries

Finally getting around to joining Jesh for SEASONS this week.

Jesh theme on her blog this week was, Bright October. - I think these photo's will fit that theme nicely.

Autumn is my all time favorite season of the year - Well actually it ties with Spring - I love them both for different reasons.

Here is why I love Autumn. - No words needed - Enjoy!

Good Fences #135 - Cornstalks on a Gate


Welcome! - It's been a quieter (still busy) week here but things aren't as stressful.

Joining Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) for,
Click to Enlarge photos.
Spotted this last fall and am finally getting around to sharing.
This Gate and lights with cornstalks decorated a vacant lot here in town.
Apparently someone in the back part of the lot used this as an entrance to their property.
The lot has been vacant for many years.  An elderly woman was murdered in the house that used  to be there.  The house was eventually torn down but nothing has ever been put back up so the lot sits empty.
I do think the gate, lights and corn stalks made for a pretty fall entryway to whatever was going on in the back part of the lot.
It would be nice someday if another home was built on the lot. 
That's it for this week.  It's been rainy & dreary here most of the week and doesn't look to promising for the weekend either.  Oh well,  I'll have time to catch up on your blogs then.
Have a great day & thanks for stopping by.

Good Fences #134 - Pick a Holiday Fence

Hello & Welcome!  - I finally got around to visiting everyone from last week just in time to post for this week.

Had a busy week filled with Volleyball Games (watching Coleen play), School Conferences for Coleen, bowling league, a trip to the ER with my mom, out of town guest & a trip to the Vet with 2 of the cats....yep, not much time for blogging.

Anyway it's time for some GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from The Run-a-round Ranch Report.

While driving down an alley the other day in search of fall foliage I did a double take at one of the fences in the alley.  Stopped the car & snapped a few pictures.

This entire fence was lined wit all kinds of holiday decorations.

 Lots of Christmas decor

Some Valentine stuff...

Other assorted holidays, (Halloween, Thanksgiving & Easter).

I didn't take a photo of all the plastic boxes lined up at the bottom of the fence but they were jammed packed with holiday items.

I'm guessing they were gearing up for a Yard Sale.  I hope they moved things inside before today as it's been dumping rain and is windy outside and let's just say these decorations would be soaked and ruined if they didn't take them inside.

That's is for my fence find this week.

I'll try hard to get by your blogs in the next couple of days.

Good Fences #133 & Little Things Thursday - Oct. 6, 2016

Welcome! - It's been a busy week (again) here.  I finally managed to get my mom in to see the doctor and found she had an infection in her legs so she's on medication now to clear that up.  Plus they gave her pain medication for her back and she's finally starting to get some sleep after nearly 2 weeks of suffering from bad back pain. - This of course eases my stress level so I'm able to relax a little more and join in on some of the Meme's I enjoy.

Up first:  GOOD FENCES

On one of our walks Coleen and I spotted a fence surrounded by Rowan Tree berries.  Here are a few shots of the fence and berries.

Here they are growing through the slats in the fence.

Here they are resting on top of the fence.

Here they top the fence along with growing through the slats.


Spreading out in all their glorious color.  - Aren't they wonderful.

Be sure to stop by Theresa's blog (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) and check out all the other Good Fences featured.


Now let's join, Tamar (Random-osity) for:


One of my favorite "little" things lately is our new kitten, Caramel Honeybun.

I can't resist that sweet little face and just look at those whiskers!

Someone dropped an ice cube on the floor and she found it.  I snapped some shots of her enjoying the ice before I picked it up. 

She brings lots of joy and laughter into the house for sure.

Have a great weekend!
