A Walk in the Park - Mellow Yellow Monday



This shrub is in one of our local parks, it is always a golden yellow color.
I believe it is Sungold Thread-Branch False Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera filifera 'Sungold'). It definitely brightens up the park area with its very mellow yellow.


For more wonderful yellows visit Mellow Yellow Monday.

The Brenda Photo Challenge/Photo Time

It's time for the Brenda Photo Challenge. This week's theme is WOOD.

My ducky little friend and I like wood in all its forms. But without a doubt we will take natural wood above all the rest. Look close to see what ducky is resting upon!

And as he rests he watches a nearby tree where many of his woodland friends reside. Click on any photo to enlarge.

Just imagine the number of creatures that call this wood home. In case you are wondering, I took this photo two days ago.

To visit more participants in this great meme visit Donna at The Brenda Photo Challenge.


Photo Time at Day One is a new meme, have you joined yet? Visit Photo Time to find out more.

Feathers in Motion - Motion Thursday

One minute the lake is calm and still.

But not for long.

Quiet and still, time for a little grooming.

Duck in motion!

Put your Thursday in motion and visit Motion Thursday.

THISway/ThursWAY and the Watcher Found


Our local park has a huge aviary that houses more than birds and waterfowl. There are several rabbits inside the aviary as well. I have seen the big black rabbit and the lop eared bunny but I still haven't spotted Benny. They have lots of places to hide and feel safe but one of these days I will get a look at Benny. For more signs visit Tink at THISway/ThursWAY.

If you remember my post from yesterday you will know I asked if you could see what was watching me from the woods. As I thought most everyone spotted my little stalker right away. For those who didn't see him or weren't sure .....

..... here is a closer look. Like I said yesterday I was concentrating on the trees and the lake and didn't see him when I took this photo. But when I walked to the other side of the tree....

.... look who was waiting for me.

Watcher in the Woods - Watery/Outdoor Wednesday




This is one of my favorite spots by the lake, it is almost always quiet.

Look carefully at this last photo. I didn't notice until after I had downloaded the photo that I was being watched.

I'm going to borrow a little game from my friend Ratty, The Everyday Adventurer and see if you can find what was watching me. Hint, it is on the land not the water. It's easy, remember you can click on the photo to enlarge. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the answer (unless everyone finds it right away.)

For more watery outdoor photos visit Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday.

Hanging Around - Mellow Yellow Monday/Photo Time

I found this little yellow caterpillar in a store a few days ago and being that he was on sale thought maybe I should give him a home.

He likes to hang from the edge of flower pots which is quite nice and gives him a view of his surroundings.

Do you think he would be happy on a pot of daisies?

Renewed - THISway/ThursWAY



From dairy products to antiques. The historic Shady Lawn Creamery building dates back to the 1870's. The building was renovated and now has a new life as an antique mall. Sorry for the quality of the photos, foggy days do not always photograph well.

To see more signs of the times visit Tink at THISway/ThursWAY.
