Mums in the Sun

Reflecting on Color

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
George Eliot

See reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections.

Sailing

I am sailing
I am sailing
home again 'cross the sea.
I am sailing stormy waters
to be near you to be free.

I am flying
I am flying like a bird 'cross the sky
I am flying passing high clouds to be with you to be free.

We are sailing
we are sailing home again 'cross the sea.
We are sailing stormy waters to be near you to be free.



It is Thursday and time for Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song. And it's also time for Freda's ThisWay/Thursday.

Thursdays are filled with fun, won't you join us?

Party Time

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.

The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper, "October's Party"

Of course how could you possibly have a party without inviting the squirrels?

Be sure to visit Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday for more photos.

Truckin

You're sick of hangin' around and you'd like to travel;
Get tired of travelin' and you want to settle down.
I guess they can't revoke your soul for tryin',
Get out of the door and light out and look all around.


Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me, What a long, strange trip it's been.


Truckin', I'm a goin' home. Whoa whoa baby, back where I belong,
Back home, sit down and patch my bones, and get back truckin' on.



Pull up a chair and turn up your speakers, it's time for Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song .

And speaking of Thursday let's figure out which way to go today, just visit Freda for ThisWay/ThursWay.

Happy Days!

How many of you remember when fast food was not as fast but a lot more fun? We didn't go to the drive thru we drove up and parked. Someone would actually come out and write up your order and then deliver it to your car. I was a little kid and this was always an exciting family outing to me.

When I was at our local car show last month this display was on one of the cars. The food may not be real but it does bring back memories.

And there is "fast food" and then there is .........

....... fast food!

The theme for this month's Brenda Photo Challenge is Fast Food. Be sure to visit Donna at The Brenda Photo Challenge and check out all the posts.

Learning to Fly

Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back

A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction holding me fast, how
Can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted Just an earth-bound misfit, I

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night
There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, A state of bliss
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I




It's Thursday and time for Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song. Pull out those photos and put them to music, that's all you need to do to join the fun.

And if you like to look at the skies you should check out SkyWatch Friday.

Long Lonesome Highway

Going down that long lonesome highway
Bound for the mountains and the plains
Sure ain't nothing here gonna tie me
And I got some friends I'd like to see

One of these days I'm gonna settle down
But till I do I won't be hanging round
Going down that long lonesome highway
Gonna live life my way

One of these days I'm gonna settle down
But till I do I won't be hanging round
Going down that long lonesome highway
Gonna live life my way



It's Thursday and time for Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song. This is a fun and easy meme, hope you will join us.

Thursday also means it time for Thursday Two Questions.

My first question is, "Do you remember the old TV show called Then Came Bronson?" The song above was the theme song and it was sung by the series' star Michael Parks.

Second question, "What was your favorite TV show when you were growing up?"

Mystery Fruit?

While I was hiking last week I saw these hanging on a bush. The few leaves on the bush were brown and shriveled. Does anyone have any idea what kind of fruit or berries these might be?

The theme for this week's Photo Time is "What is it?" For more photos visit Freda at Photo Time.
