Pumpkin’s watery grave

This Jack O Lantern probably graced someone’s front porch last weekend for Halloween. Even though you can’t see the face, the top removal is evidence of some decorative artwork. How or why this pumpkin found its way into the center of this shallow river is a mystery.

No more campaign ads, now we just have to get through the counting and lawsuits. Be safe! COVID’s getting worse just about everywhere. 

Carpet of leaves

A true sign of fall can be seen in yards and forested areas. A carpet of leaves has developed in our yard as can be seen in the image.  You can barely see the fence and mulched bed circling the maple tree.

Continue to follow recommended safety precautions. Avoid the virus.

Fall on a river

The fall is such a beautiful time of year. This little sometimes island has become home for a couple of driftwood trees. The foliage colors are still sharing their brilliance as fallen leaves take a journey down the calm waters of the river.

Just think, in a little less than two weeks the election will be over and we’ll no longer have to put up with all of those ridiculous, offensive, and repetitive campaign ads on TV, radio and print.

Continue to be careful and safe. COVID-19 is on the rise in many many areas of the country. Now is not the time to relax wearing masks, social distancing and hand washing.

More color of fall

Even though there have been two nights with frost and hard freezes there are still trees with beautiful fall leaves. Indiana is finally getting some much needed rainfall as well.

I trust you and yours are staying safe in whatever you are doing during these trying times.

Home Depot Orange

Fall is the time for the leaves to turn. At this Home Depot in Everett, Washington the choice of landscaping trees in the parking lot matched the company color scheme.

The fall season is here, with the colors in Washington State sometimes hard to find among the evergreens!
