A fun day

Friday, September 20, 2013

The picture of last nights Moon didn't turn out as bad as I thought. I didn't realize it was a Harvest Moon until Jackie told me. Thanks Jackie!!

Sarge and I took a walk out in the open desert near our house.

New Roses

Henley the Hero

We went out looking for more yard decor today. We drove out by the ranches expecting to see antiques etc. sitting in the yards. Hardly anything. We were surprised. We did find the cute Giraffe. We saw this one last year. I really like it.

Nice Victorian House has a cute Gazebo.

Coyote in our front yard. I need to find some touch up paint for the statue.

Time to say good night!

    That moon was beautiful last night and tonight as well!! We don't have any lights in this campground but as bright as the moon is, we don't need them!! Beautiful roses. Had a freeze here last night so the growing season is over for the yr. We will have your flowers to remember until next spring.

    Nice pictures - I love the moon! It's also a good thing I don't live close to you because I'm pretty sure I'd try to steal Henley. I just love seeing pictures of him.

    Nice Harvest moon!!!! I didn't find out it was a Harvest moon till I was too close to sleep to go see if I could still see it! hehe
Sarge......such a sweet boy!
That rose is a beauty!!! Peachy!!! I love that color! Pink is really pretty, too!
Ah, handsome Henley!!!
I think I remember that giraffe statue from you pics last year, but this one is closer and more detail can be seen! So cute!
Love your coyote!! Like he was frozen mid-howl.
And of course the beautiful sunset! You do have quite a nice little slice of heaven out there!!! Thank you so much for sharing it with me!!
Hope you have a fabulous day, my friend!! (((HUGS)))

    Your outdoors photos remind me of when I lived in Utah and New Mexico - drier, not as green as Florida, but lots of hawks and eagles, and unique desert fauna. Give my love to all your pets and roses emoticon and have a splendid day! emoticon
Love, Chelsea emoticon

    Wonderful photos, Jeanne! The roses are just perfect! I love the photo of Henley looking at us, his eyes have a pinkish-lavendar cast to them! Did the poor boy have a hard night? emoticon Also, the giraffe was fascinating, the neighbor's house very distinctive with its design, and the photos of the desert were fascinating! emoticon for sharing!

    Very nice Moon Jeanne. The house reminds me of a TV program but I can't place it.

Those Roses are out of this world as mine are now finished.

Car show this weekend, so next week I hope some photo's.

Have a good weekend
