Signs of fall and Bun Bun

Sometimes I just simply run out of anything worth posting...and still don't have much. 

I was in Henderson yesterday picking up a prescription and on the drive home stopped the car in the middle of a back country road to get this picture...



Do you ever wonder why you are drawn to certain things? For me it's these small lonely looking old home places. I just feel a connection somehow. 

Leaves are falling from the willow oak trees which makes me think of fall...and those spiders that show up this time of the year! They hang in a web that looks like a clothesline strung from one tree to another. I have horrors of walking into one. During the day the spider hides, but hangs in that web at night. Another sign of fall...Yellowjackets. I never see them until this time of the year. Busy mowing the back yard a couple of days ago, I felt that awful painful stinging on the side of my foot. It was a Yellowjacket. I had mowed over their nest in a hole in the ground. 


 I can see a little fall in this picture...



I am actually looking forward to raking leaves this fall...imagine that! The very job that stressed me out so last fall

Bun Bun just may be spoiled.  Hanging out waiting for me to carry him to the empty dog lot to play...







Thank you for stopping by. 

Love,
Henny Penny

  2. We are having cool nights and the sumac is changing, so fall is almost here, too. Fall is my favorite time of year. BunBun looks very excited to be transported to his playpen! He is a cutie.

    1. I can see why you are not ready for fall yet...your cold and snow stayed around so long! He is a cute floppy dude!

  4. This must be the time of year for ground-dwelling yellow jackets. The author of Far Side of Fifty (I think) was just writing about both her and her dog getting caught in an attack. BunBun is about the cuddliest rabbit I've ever seen. I'd take him anywhere he wanted to be carried!

  6. You don't have to remind me that fall is approaching quickly. I like fall but not the stuff that comes after fall.

  7. I hate those spider webs that go all over the place, too. Lovely old building. All old buildings draw me in. I wonder what they would say if they could talk...
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Bub Bun knows these are the dog days of summer, and laziness is expected.
    I choose to ignore approaching fall while we still have mre than three weeks of summer left. Now that I am a RETIRED teacher, Labor
    day is just another long weekend.
