At the market they called this an Apple Dumpling Gourd. I haven't made up my mind if I'm going to cook and eat or just look at it.

Bicycle ride

Wouldn't you just love to have one of these? Took this at the road side market.

Starting to look like fall

Went to the road side market yesterday and picked up some pumpkins & gourds. A few of my favorite things. I love this shot. It's the top to the chiminea and I have been looking for something to set on it every since I missed the shot of the gold finch that landed on it. Hope you don't get tired of this arrangment because it's a perfect spot.

Blackeyed Susan

Another image I got last weekend. Between the heavy lens and the slight breeze, it was impossible to get good sharp images.

September 2009

I'm going to take a guess and say this is some kind of mushroom. It completely covers this tree and I liked the color contrast between it and the green behind. This is one time I really wished I had my tripod with me cause my big lens is so hard to hold steady.

Goldenrod & Aster

Stopped along the road the other day to snap this.

Geranium 2009

I might have made this one way too small but at least I got the frame around it and still had room to put my title.

My try

I took this shot last week and you are right they are hard. Can't get what my eyes see. Wish I had moved back a little.

End of Summer Sun Rays

I will get this...someday....somehow......eventually. I love the Sun Rays and try as I might, I have a heck of a time capturing them on paper. They were much brighter than this but at least I can see them. I'll keep trying!

Added several textures.

Fall Beauty

The Asters have started blooming this week. I think they are really pretty but they don't seem to last very long. As you can see, I still have some coneflower too. I'm sure glad its Friday..its been a long, long week.

Sweet Autumn

I love the smell of this clematis. I have three of these trellis on this wall with the Sweet Autumn in the middle and Jack Mani on the other two. But, the Sweet Autumn is choking the other two out. It grows all over the place and I cut it down to the ground every fall. I'm going to grow lots of this on the privacy fence.

Ok...had to go about this a bit differently. I had to add to the canvas size on the background layer and then added the stroke and shadow on the second layer. Anyway, I got the shadow to work but needed to add more to the stroke. I'll get it some day...LOL..
This is it for tonight....headed for bed.

Knock Out Red Rose Bud

I put a stroke around this one but still can't do the shadow. This is one of my Knock Out Roses just getting ready to bloom out. I like them when they are in this stage.

It's All About Me

I finally had a chance this morning to get some shots of a few of the flowers still left blooming. The Mandevilla has bloomed non stop this year. I guess it likes all the rain. I can't figure my CS4 out...can't get the shadows to warp like in CS2. can't tell I put any border around this image. If you figure it out, let me know.

Ice Cream

This is the first time any of the "Grands" have been here when the Ice Cream truck has come by. Had to grab money and camera and run outside so we could both get a treat. Zach an ice cream sandwich and me a photo of it all. I think I got the best deal....LOL

2009 White Coneflower & PeeGee Hydrangea

One of my newest coneflowers. I planted it in front of the Peegee Hydrangea and like the contrast in shape. I should have used the tripod but was too lazy to go back in the house...LOL..

The little bug is by Connie Crook.
