Thursday Walkabout ~ Woods & Pastures

These were taken tonight along my favorite walking path behind our house & barn. 

I promise – no snakes this time :-) Oh, and especially for my friend Patti, no scary frogs either.  Speaking of Patti, go check out her turkeys.

Oh, back to the walk… A few of the Wild Things you may recognize are: Black Eyed Susans, Cedar and berries, Milkweed, Wild Rose, Oak Leaves.

8-6-09 walkabout

This one I call “On Brown Pond” (lovely, huh?).  The cows have been taking cooling-off baths during these warm early August days here in Missouri. It’s just a few yards behind our house and barn. Many mornings I’ve watched a Blue Heron wading along the edge. Some day I will get his picture here, whether he realizes it or not.


Hope the weather is nice where you are. We have one more day of decent temps, then it’s upper 90’s for the weekend. Looks like Summer is returning with a vengeance!

I love taking walkabouts, it doesn't really matter where, I look forward to whatever it is I might come across. They are also relaxing.

On Brown Pond, lol. :)

Great photos, love all the plant life. How did you make the collage -- did you use Picnik?

Summer has certainly come back to southern KS with a vengeance - temps back in the 100s. Ouch.
