"Just Watch This" Wednesday



Beautiful things get me pretty excited.

Some days, talking seems a far second to observing. There's nothing special about my place except the fact that it is MY place (and Hubzam's, of course). But then I kick that sentiment to the curb once I've walking been around and really looked at the bit of geography we call home. 

So, call this "Just Watch" Wednesday as I share a few pictures I took in my yard today. 


In Tennessee, we appreciate orange (Go, Vols!).

This particular Sunflower must be 12 feet high.

The sunflowers are just showing off this year.

Gotta check on sleeping birds. I've got four birdhouses with youngsters.

Don't forget me...how could you ignore a cow?

More showing off...go, Mother Nature, go...

Wish I remembered what flowers I planted.

This little guy didn't mind me sticking my camera phone up close and personal.

The view out back. I can't write a better ending.

  2. I think I just fell a wee bit in love with your yard and it's environs... even with the show-offy sunflowers, lol.

    1. Then we are equal - I love your container gardens so much. We are thinking about downsizing and the container gardens would be in my small house future, for sure. Actually, I don't have a huge house now - but I have a big yard.

  3. Ending with a rainbow - nice!
    You do have some tall sunflowers. Wow.

    1. It's funny to have flowers that are too tall for you to pick!

  5. Very nice. If I may mix meats, that cow's a ham!

  7. Enjoyed your pictures....well not so much the cow's nose!

    1. That particular cow will lick my arm if I am not careful. His giant tongue can get the whole arm in one swipe. So, I prefer just seeing his nose (he was seconds away from the "big lick" attempt once more).

  8. Love the pictures, and your commentaries.

  9. BEAUTIFUL!
    And much better than anything I could see from where I'm at.
    Unless you think a dog licking his crotch is beautiful.

    1. I'd have to see the dog before I could answer.

  10. You have a pretty yard. It's rained a lot lately, so Lake Junebug has water again.

    Love,

    1. We were looking at a house tonight that had a creek in the back yard and the first thing that came to mind was "how long will that creek remain a creek...and not a lake?" It would be my luck to move into a yard that flooded. We have a creek on the very back of our property, but it is beyond a 500 year flood line.

      All that to say that water in your yard is no fun. I have paper towels, if that will help.

  11. I love these pictures-the rainbow to end the blog for today is great. I love that moth and your camera phone takes great pictures. Mr. Cow wants to get to know you:)

    1. Considering the fact that the phone's camera wasn't a factor in the choice AT ALL, it does take good pictures, I think. I hear LG has a phone with a 12 mp camera...I'd be throwing my camera away at that point. Less is best.

      Mr. Cow knows I give him fruit peelings and vegetable stalks. He thinks we're in love.
