Willy Nilly Friday Five

Happy Friday!

Joining Tanya (Around Roanoke) for WILLY-NILLY FRIDAY FIVE




1.  My mom & I took a drive up a back road the other day so I could get some pictures of the valley but it was so overcast you really couldn't see it that well.  We did spot more deer in the same field we did last year so I had to take pictures of them.  Yes they were quite far off and even with my zoom you can't seem them that well.  Can you tell how many are in the shot?

Be sure to click to enlarge for a better view. - The answer is at the end of the post.

2.  We had a beautiful sunset the other night.  I walked down to the school (about 2 blocks) to get this shot so it would be free of power lines.
 
 

3.  I was on my way to the store the other day when I noticed this house was getting some new roofing.  Of course it's been pretty rainy here lately so they haven't exactly started on the roof yet but all the shingles are up there.  I just happened to think it was unusual to see them wrapped in purple plastic.  Naturally I had to get a picture.  This is for you Debbie (It's All About Purple)




4.  Coming back from the bowling alley on Wednesday I saw something running across someone's lawn and thought, "What is that?"  I managed to pull over and get my camera out and snapped a couple of pictures.  Sadly they weren't the best of pictures but you'll get the general idea.  It was a squirrel...so what's so unusual about that you might ask?

Well this one was a mutated squirrel.  Instead of it being brown it was a pale tan color with white splotches and a white face.  It was over cast and I was parked where I shouldn't have been parked so you'll just have to make do with the shot that turned out the best. - Believe me it was one "weird" looking squirrel.


5.  Finally today the wind has been blowing at a steady pace.  Coleen and I drove to Safeway to get lunch and on the way we noticed a street closed sign.  Now around here that usually means they are working on the streets but in this case it meant this....


A large fir tree blew over and took out a branch of a birch tree as well.  We walked up, being careful of the downed power lines and snap a few shots.  I'm just sharing this one for now.

Answer for the number of deer in photo: (14).

Finally to join Steve (BF Dude) for FELINE FRIDAY...

  10. Driving in the countryside is a pleasant way to spend a few hours. How great to see all the deer. We've had a lot of wind here in the past couple of days, too - ferries were cancelled most of yesterday afternoon and evening. I guess it's spring!

  11. Hi Ida, that is a lot of deer in one place. I love the sky, gorgeous photo. The squirrel is cute, I've seen some unusual ones here too. I don't remember that happening years ago. Enjoy your weekend.

  20. we have been having some wild weather and high winds here, i hate when a tree is lost because of it!! i enjoyed the image of the deer!!

  21. and the cats...i knew i was forgetting something!!!

  22. A whole collection of wonderful things shared! I wonder what is up with that little squirrel. In a human we might think it was caused by vitiligo. I love anything and everything purple, so purple packaged shingles fits the bill! :-) Your sunset photo is gorgeous, as is the lovely impressionist style capture of your two sweet furkids!

  23. Wonderful series of photos! Love the deer in the fields and the weird white squirrel. I always hate seeing trees blown over by the wind. We had some high winds here, too, but luckily we didn't lose any trees. Cute watercolors of the kitty-cats. xx Karen
