Good evening from Southern Illinois!
It's a beautiful Autumn evening here, windy yet mildly warm with a storm on the way. I went outside and sat on my front porch earlier to take some pictures of the pretty fall trees around the house.
This one was taken of the trees across the street.
The next one I took from my upstairs window.
The building is the top of our garage.
It's getting darker outside now and I can hear the rumbles of thunder off in the distance. I have already brought my weather radio downstairs in expectaion of it going off later.
I can hear it from upstairs but don't like having to run upstairs to fetch it so it's already handy!
As I was walking the dogs around the yard yesterday I thought I had better take a few photos of the last of the bloomed flowers in the yard. They are still going strong but I don't expect that to last much longer as I'm sure a frost will be visiting here soon.
The Lantana's still have gorgeous color!
Although the leaves are stating to yellow.
The Ice Plant.
This was a close up.
They are quite big actually about four to five feet in diameter.
I have two of these pretty yellow perennials.
I don't remember what they are called but I do have it written down somewhere.
They look very delicate to me.
The next one is a combination of Petunia's and another plant that I forgot the name of ! My husband loves this plant and calls it a Snowball flower!!
Oh my!! My dogs Ruby and Roxy are having a fit !!
It's thundering and lightening out now and they don't like it at all.
Ruby runs around and barks at the thunder...
And poor little Roxy sits as close to me as she can and just shakes
and shakes !!
Not a very good photo of little Foxy Roxy but it does show her scared face. Poor little thing.
I will finish up here so that I can cuddle her.
That's what's going on in and out of the house.
I have to be at the hospital at 6:30 tomorrow morning for my left hand Carpel Tunnel release surgery. It's a quick and easy surgery, about 15 minutes.
My right hand is almost completely healed now and the numbness is completely gone from that hand. So if all goes well, I should be all healed up for my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving Day.
Ready to cook and entertain. I can be very entertaining you know!!
Another thing I'm looking forward to is crocheting again. I really miss it.
Oh there goes that thunder again. I better close the windows and calm the dogs. I hope you all have a wonderful evening.
I'll be back soon, God willing.
