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:
|Me and Dave on Morning Patrol|
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!
Beautifully serene! Your sky shots are great!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your pictures. They are all beautiful.ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing - mom gave a huge sigh.....ReplyDelete
So serene and beautiful in Kansas! Too bad your mom didn't get photos of the shooting stars. :)ReplyDelete
LOVE that third sunset photo!ReplyDelete
Hi there, Oh how I love your photos-the sky is so beautiful. Our mums-almost the same color as yours, are just about done in but I don't want to cut them back yet. Thank you for sharing life in your neck of the woods with us-you bring me joy!ReplyDelete
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

Your mums are doing a lot better than ours. Momma did some beheading this morning as some of them seemed to have given up after our giant rainstorms.ReplyDelete
I loved seeing you two out on morning patrol. Woo hoo!
I may change our names from
Sir Frankie Furter and Sir Ernest.. to
Sir Reeeen after this LOVELY Post.
What a great bunch of pictures for us to end our day with. Thanks, we especially love the flowers.ReplyDelete

That is just what me and MOM needed on this Sunday evening. Be a very long day for MOM, she is still very sick, but being that it is Sunday she of course had to be at church. I said I would preach and teach for her, but she thought maybe I should just keep her company while she did it. Loved the last photo!! Our favorite.ReplyDelete
Have a lovely Monday Zim and thank you for sharing your serene Sunday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly

Ommmmmm... Oh yeah, I feel totally serene. Thanks!ReplyDelete
