Better than Galileo

No, not that I am better than Galileo!  But, my camera does have more magnification at 300mm than Galileo did  in 1609-1610 when he first turned his eyes to Jupiter.  And at a complete surprise to me, on a clear fall night in NY I was able to capture this picture of Jupiter with my camera...and yup, those are the Galilean moons surrounding it.  COOL!

A hint of purple

Right near where we were grillin' up dinner on the NY trip were these pretty little flowers.  Those who know me know that I can't resist a flower picture!!!!

So Much Depends...

On the blue wheel barrow...

Another goodie from the NY trip a couple weeks ago.  This picture just says fall and farm to me.  They also had a bathtub as a planter...most creative!

Salad Dressing Anyone?

Another picture form the NY trip.  Poke salad (also known as Pokeweed) has some darned pretty berries in the fall and I always seem to find some to take pictures of now that I live in the south!

Hello, I am Fall and I Am Cool!

OK, so I really should be grading student papers right now, but I think I will avoid it a bit longer by blogging! :)  A couple weeks ago Courtney and I had the chance to head up to near Salt Point, NY to visit with some family (new family for me!) and go to their home winery bottling party!  More on the party is here.  Fall was starting in up north and we got to see some great foliage.  This little guy was just outside one of our friends' house and I fell in love with it.  No idea what type of plant it is but I love the way the leaves changes in stripes!  Most Cool Fall!!
