Snapshots - In the Front Yard

Greetings from the Hermit-Writer.


Sun makes the common picture really snap





No more buds on the irises until February


Any question to why she's called Brass Butt?


So many leaves to rake up


And more hanging there, teasing me


Even naked sycamores are pretty cool



Burros are so cute

  11. That burro is so cute.. but so is the brass butt. :) Lovely sunlit pictures. I'm envious that you'll have flower buds in February. We've been all done since September and won't see flower again until at least April.. probably May.
