Let's start with a dynamic sunset:
Those colors are so warm and wonderful, aren't they?
Here's last night's sunset:
Mom took that down the street when Dave and I were taking her on an after-dinner walk. Here's what the sky looked like toward the south(ish):
There was an explosion of color all over the place! That's the moon up there in the upper third of the picture. It was a little bit cloudy.
The skies cleared up later on and the stars were just stunning! Dave and I had read about the Orionid meteor shower and that there would be great viewing overnight. We set our internal clocks and got Mom up at 0200 this morning to go out and enjoy it. We took a walk to the end of the street and saw a couple shooting stars! It was really cool! We don't have any photos of that, but here we are from a walk later this morning:

Pretend it's dark, starry, and that we're on the sidewalk instead of the street, and you're there!
Speaking of being places ...
I don't really care where Mom and I go on our afternoon adventures, but I do insist that Mom puts the Jay Sekulow Show on the radio. I don't "settle" into my serenity zone until she does.
Flower-wise ... our Mums are pretty much the only things still blooming. Here's a look at the Burgundy ones by our mailbox:
They've really filled in nicely this year. Let's stick our snooters in for a close-up:
What a great burst of color!
We've had a couple light frosts, so our sunflowers are gone. We did take this picture before they got zapped out and wanted to share it with you:
We Kansans can't get enough of our sunflowers! Mom even likes them when they're starting to fizzle out for the year. It's a sign of the changing of the seasons ... and ... given that it's Serene Scenery Sunday, I'll share another reason with you, with one of the special pix Mom likes to do.
What a great reminder!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
