Fall Colors

Fall has definately arrived. I absolutely LOVE the colorfull changes in the trees.
I thought I would share a few pictures from the roads I drive everyday. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I know I have been enjoying the views while driving.




The first picture posted here is looking out my office window. Just a bit of color, but a reminder that it is indeed Fall.






This next picture is of a group of trees along Highway 526. This is the route I drive while taking Lindsey to school everyday.

I finally remembered to take my camera so that I could snap a picture.



The picture to the left is on Highway 185, which is the road that leads me home.
The trees provide a backdrop of beautiful scenery almost year round. Every season brings a different scene along the treelined hillside.



My last picture is my favorite of the ones posted here. It was taken on Richardsville Road. The mix of trees and the bright red bushes in teh yard on the right make a very pretty picture. At least I think so.....

Shadow Shot Sunday

Hello all, here it is...... Sunday. Not much going on. Just hanging out relaxing, before having to head back to work on Monday. Even though tomorrow is Columbus Day and the Banks and Post Office will be closed.
I thought since there is no "new" news to report, that I would share a couple of Shadow Pictures.

So here they are, I hope you enjoy.....



This one was taken in July at Kereiakes Park. There are many ducks on the big pond there. One of these is casting its shadow on the water as it swims along.


This picture was taken, near the end of July, in front of the Fed Ex Forum in Memphis.
The last one is of my daughter, Lindsey, in the shadow of the picnic shelter, at the school near our house. This picture was taken sometime last summer (2008). This shelter is no longer there, because they are in the process of building a new school.
I hope you have enjoyed my shadow shots.........
HAPPY SUNDAY!!!

A Vsit To Jackson's Orchard


This past weekend we decided to take a trip to Jackson's Orchard. They are holding their annual Pumpkin Fest. When we arrived, we took a walk around. The orchard is decorated for Fall.












There were beautiful flowers and pumpkins of every color, shape and size at the main barn.

I don't think I have ever seen Impatiens Plants this big. They were so pretty.


This year they have added a new slide, "The Cider Slider", to the activities for kids.





They also have a petting zoo, pony rides, the inflatable jumping thing, face painting, pumpkin painting, and these tires to climb on.
But we had come to visit the Pumpkin Patch.



Michael got directions.......




We decided to walk instead of paying the $2 per
person to ride the Apple Wagon to the patch.



It is a nice little walk, through the apple orchard and past the corn maze.














The Corn Maze had seen it's better days. The corn stalks were laying on the ground and had been taken over by weeds.


The pumpkin patch was huge as usual with lots of pumpkins of all sizes to choose from.





I found the "Perfet Pumpkin", it was small but perfectly round and just he right color. Plus, it would have been easily carried from the patch.






Hartsul picked a rather large ugly pumpkin and Michael told him that if he wanted it he had to carry it from the patch to the checkout, which was a pretty good distance.



So off we went.......




After carrying it a few minutes, he decided rolling it would be easier.....

But, he was afraid the rocks along the path would damage his pumpkin. So it was back to carrying it.



He stopped a time or two to rest his arms and to get a better grip.


Finally, the barn was in sight.

We paid for the pumpkin and took it to the car.

After that we thought we deserved some apple cider and some fried apple pies.......
Yum, yum.

Around Bowling Green





A few more of the pictures I took last weekend.


Lindsey and Natalie enjoyed walking around on campus. It was a perfect day for it and it gave them different backgrounds for their pictures.









Fountains Square Archway.





I caught them off guard in this one. But, as you can see, they were having a good day.





I enjoyed walking around on Western's campus myself. It really is a nice campus. Other than the hill. My old arthritic knees were sure given a work out.






I didn't intend to take this one of Cherry Hall in black and white, but it turned out okay.



This is the sign outside of Holly, it has been a big part of Bowling Green for many years and it is very near Western's campus.




I
love taking pictures of the rushing waters at teh Riverwalk. I can remember seeing them when I was a kid and thinking what a pretty sight it was and now as an adult, I still enjoy seeing them. I guess I just like the water.







I can remember when this was a bridge that cars drove over. Now it is part of the walking/bike trail at the Riverwalk.








I think this is the neatest little building. At night it is lit up and looks so pretty. I'm glad they didn't tear it down with all the construction for the baseball stadium. The city decided to keep it and did some renovating of the building and a bit of landscaping. I think it is neat.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. Have a good rest of the week.

Warm And Sunny

The weather this weekend has finally been warm and sunny. On Saturday we went downtown to the office. Michael had some things that he wanted to work on for awhile, so Lindsey and I left him there while we ran a few errands and drove around a bit. I had my camera with us, so we took a few pictures.


This is the water tower on what used to be called Hospital Hill (when the Hospital was there), now it is called Reservoir Hill. The tower can be seen from a number of locations around Bowling Green and has been painted with the Flag Theme for as long as I can remember.




Here we have Fountain Square Park. It is really a great place for taking pictures. Prom nights for the local schools usually start with taking pictures here. I love that the park is so close to the office, it is a nice place to take a walk on a warm day and in the summer they have the "Concerts In The Park" every Wednesday too.


This is our Justice Center, a place I'm becoming quite familiar with. It is at the end of the block from the office. Makes it convenient when we have to go over there for Court or for filings.




These next few pictures were taken at the River Walk. It is another great place for taking pictures. I like the water in the background.



I sneaked a shot of Lindsey soaking up the warm sunshine, which left her shadow on the ground.



I like the big map of Bowling Green in the walkway just before the bridge. I tried to get all of it in the picture, but you couldn't read it. It's really neat, it shows the location of all the little communities in Bowling Green. Bowling Green is the big star and Richardsville,(where we live), is at the top of the picture, just inside the square.


I had to get a shot of our new Bowling Green Baseball Park, home of the "Hot Rods".
Adam attended a game Friday night and had a great time.

Lindsey and I had a good time just getting outside in the warm sun and enjoying the views of Bowling Green. I took several more pictures and I'll try to post them in the next few days.

Have a good week everyone!!

This is also my post for Manic Monday, so be sure to go over to "It's A Blog Eat Blog World" and check out everyone's posts. The word this week is WARM.
