Saturday morning a little fog. Remember at the start of the month , when we talked about August fogs being a predicter of winter snows....I really wish I had kept track of our fogs.
The sun was rising and burning off the fog.
This morning there's zero visibility, in our area. The dusk to dawn light is still on in this shot and it's after 7:00 AM.
The corn field across the road isn't real clear. There's a small woods about a quarter mile from us , when I can not see it clearly, that is how I judge the conditions around here.
Yesterday afternoon, I noticed a family of three doves walking back and forth on the front walk.
I thought it might be the father, mother and child. They walked down to the shop and turned and came back to the house. Maybe they want us to put out more sunflower seeds. :)
I dropped into Horton's store one day this past week. I am loving this tin truck, they use for displays. It was load with bags of fertilizers and yard tools. Still has the ivy under the hood.
I bought a pack of country printed paper napkins. Good to use for a snack or cup of coffee.
My gardening daughter Karen , Is still harvesting. She is looking the pear tree over and said it was loaded with fruit. Oh boy , some for cooked pear or tarts.
She made herself a nice bouquet with some of the smaller sunflowers. She put them in an old orange enamel pitcher. Looks like fall.
Still getting veggies from her garden. Here's some things to help with dinner. Not much happened this weekend. Just watering plants and going to the grocery. Took mail into the post office. Things that have to get done, but are not in the exciting category. LOL
Hope you have had a nice weekend so far. Wishing all a great new week. XO
Susie I say this a lot, but you truly capture the beauty of nature! I love the photos that you take early in the morning. They're so pretty, and a great way to start the day! You find the most interesting things at Horton's! I'm glad you take your viewers along with you in your posts! Have a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
Thank you Pilar, you are so kind. I really wish I could down load pictures from my camera to my files...have not been able to do that for about a year. So I use my phone. Horton's will be having the Autumn Market at the end of next month. I am sure they will have some wonderful things on display and I can't wait to see what will be in that tin truck. :):) I hope your week is a great one too. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
You're welcome and thanks! I hope you show the Autumn Market next month! In speaking of stores, I went to Lowes Foods with my mom yesterday, and it was a fun experience. The stores reminds me of a Farmers Market. I posted that last night. I hope you stop by!Delete
The bad thing about the tin truck is that it gets 0 MPG, even on the highwayReplyDelete
Ha,yes it has an ivy plant for a motor. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
The fog sure does make for some lovely pictures, Susie! I think we've had 3 August fogs so far. I love mourning doves, there's just something so serene about them. They show up pretty on the brick.ReplyDelete
And I need to get some of those paper napkins! It's hot here too but hoping for some rain. Have a good Sunday!
Dewena, I hope you get the rain you need. So scary with all the fires and floods. Wish the rains could be where the fires are...to help put them out. We have 12 more days of August...I am going to try to keep count of the fogs. Blessings to you hope all is well. xoxo, SusieDelete
Fog is sort of pretty and mysterious, but I hate driving in it. I'm praying we have a normal winter. This crazy summer makes me think our weather is just so strange lately.ReplyDelete
The pears look delicious. I really need to brush up on some recipes. I really like them baked on top of brie as an appetizer or dessert.
Have a good week, Susie!
Blondie, So good to hear from you. Hope you are recovering and doing well. I hate driving it downpours, fogs and heavy snows. I think I get white knuckles . LOL. I think fresh pears will be nice in salads. Or even bake in muffins . I am worried about what winter could have in store for us after the crazy mixed up spring and summer we have had. Blessings to you sweet girl, xoxo, SusieDelete
Same kind of weekend here, only without the dog. Last night during church, we were surprised with heavy thunderstorms and boy, they were toad floaters! Scary drive home. I love watching doves with their little ones. I think something scared our doves away this year and it makes me sad. I hope they return next year.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, If there are hawks around , they will scare your birds. I laughed about the toad floaters. so cute never heard that one. :):) We had a pretty day today once the fog lifted. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love morning fogs, Susie, and am wondering about the prediction of a cold winter, I hope not we had a very cold one last year. Your photos are so lovely. I love doves and took a photo of two at my gate, my dh says they mate for life. Thanks for sharing, have a blessed week.ReplyDelete
Hi Sue, I have heard that about Doves mating for life. Oh dear if the fog is predicting our snows for winter...I am already dreading it. LOL. I love fog pictures. I wish I could paint fog...I may have to practice that. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love your foggy day! And those paper napkins are adorable!! Next year we really hope to have a true garden. It would be wonderful! I read a blog where the lady was growing cantaloupes in a bush! She had emptied a cantaloupe of its seeds and thrown them in a flower bed. They started growing up and through the bush! Oh, I wish I could do that!!ReplyDelete
Happy a good week, Susie Q! Love y'all!
HI Linda, That cantaloupe bush would be so fun to see. LOL. That is exactly why when making a compost pile , you are never to put things that seed into them. LOL I am thinking of making my own sweet potato vines next year. Blessings for a feel good happy week. xoxo,love you guys, SusieDelete
When the fog rolls in here by the river, we can hear the freighters blow their horns for miles. It is a nice sound....each having a different tone. The flowers are lovely in that pitcher. Autumn is getting inside my brain. Time to start decorating. JaniceReplyDelete
Hi Janice, I know you have plenty of fog there by the water. I would love to hear the fog horns as long as I was not on the water. LOL. I am thinking of finding all my fall décor and start to decorate. It seems to be coming early here. Already tinges of color on the trees. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love foggy mornings. It just feels mystical. Those napkins are the just the cutest!ReplyDelete
I love summer but I think im ready for Fall. There is just something about the smell of baked apples and falling leaves.
Lisa, When I was a kid people used to burn their leaf piles in the streets. What horrid pollution. Took many years for the biggies to figure that out. LOL You know what sounds so good now that you mentioned baked apples....apple crisp. I may make some for dinner today. Of course I will use the micro wave. LOL. Blessings to you pretty girl, xoxo, SusieDelete
Loving the pictures Susie. Oh I just love seeing the doves. We have some that prance around in my yard from time to time. I love watching them. My pears are coming in now and I always say that I am going to make pear jam or jelly but never seem to have the extra time. Though I did get some for some cobbler. Hope you have a great day dear lady. Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Hi Cindy, I have never canned anything in my life...have no idea .My son in law cans green beans and pickles. LOL I love seeing the birds and miss our robins....have not seen as many as we had in spring. I like the doves, for they will feed on the ground under the bird feeders, thus not wasting seeds. :) Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
How cute about your morning doves. I bet they were looking for you to put out more seed. We have not seen too much in the way of fog up here so if that is a predictor of snow I am glad we are not seeing that lol! Love Horton's truck sooo cute and love your sweet little napkins too.ReplyDelete
Hi Kris, I want to go to Hortons for their Fall Market...but we have other plans ...I am hoping I can go maybe on Friday, Sept. 21st. I like to see the doves eating under the birdfeeders...theen I know no seeds are wasted. They are so good at cleaning up. Yikes, my friend, I am already worried about fog ..LOL..sure hope it's not a true predicter. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I feel the same as you and wish I'd kept up with the fogs better. We've had quite a few also. I love them and you always share such beauty. Hope you have a nice week sweet friend. xoReplyDelete
Thank you Susie. I have to say you have been on my mind and in my conversations a couple times. My daughter and I have talked about your thyroid. My girls get checked..and my twins have had theirs removed. My niece is getting hers removed soon. Hope you are doing better. You are in my prayers always.Delete
I love seeing the foggy mornings as it is lifting . Blessings to you dear friend, love you, xoxo, Susie
I always enjoy seeing life in your neck of the woods, Susie! My daughter was telling me they are predicting an early winter with lots of snow this year here.ReplyDelete
Linda, I am praying for a very long autumn season...that winter and snow can wait till Feb. LOL. I like seeing around the homes , inside and out, of other bloggers too. Blessings to you honey, xoxo, SusieDelete
Hi Susie! I love seeing your foggy pictures! Summer is going by too fast. Thank you for your well wishes on our move.ReplyDelete
Be a sweetie,
Hi Shelia, I have truly missed you and your cute songs. I do hope all is going well for all of you. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, I may have mentioned before that I don't like fog, but the kind you have in the mornings over the corn and lawns looks so pretty.My fogs come from the ocean so don't know if that is a damper fog. It sure looks pretty though..xxoJudyReplyDelete
Judy, I never like driving to work in fog...to scary. I am a bit claustrophobic in fog , heavy rains or snows. I like seeing it in the trees . Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Dear Susie..your photos of the morning took me right back to childhood when we would visit my grandmother in Ohio...I can feel that air and the wonderful smells...love all the signs of fall at your sweet home....have a good week love.ReplyDelete
Thank you Betsy. I have been thinking of the cooler air that used to come in our windows at night...as fall approached. There is a sweetness in the air. That is one reason I always loved when my husband would drive at night if we went thru the southern states...honeysuckle scent. I am tired of the AC running all the time. I want to open my windows. :):) Blessings to you and yours, xoxo,love, SusieDelete
