Halloween decorations~Sunday stills Challenge 103110

We went to our daughter's house yesterday for dinner. My cousins had just flown in from Alaska with the two year old son and were staying with our daughter and son-in-law for a week. These are the decorations she had up at her house. We'll be going back there for dinner tonight and trick-or-treat with our grandson and his little cousin!

Fall Foliage~Sunday Stills Challenge 102410

Hubby and I spotted this tree in Bishop, CA, right along Highway 395 last weekend. It must have been a maple tree because all the aspen were yellow and orange! Sunday stills Challenge for October 24, 2010.

Cars~Sunday stills challenge for 101710

Any takers? It's only $8,500! We drove by this antique car in Big Pine, CA on our way to the Sierras last weekend. Unfortunately, we didn't have an Internet connection our entire stay in Silver Lake. Sunday Stills for 101710

Sierras and rain~SkyWatch Friday 102210

As hubby and I drove home from the Sierras, we had rain on and off the entire trip back to the desert. This was south of Lone Pine. I stopped to take some photos of the rain slanting down in front of the mountains. SkyWatch Friday for October 22, 2010.

Open door~Window Views and Doors, Too 102110

This shed was right next to a pasture of horses and sheep and, of course, I couldn't resist checking it out. It is right across the street from the Ranch Cafe, near Olancha, CA, where the Crystal Geyser bottling plant is located on Highway 395. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that it was an OUTHOUSE! ACK! Apparently it hasn't been used for some time (thank goodness!) Window Views and Doors, Too for October 21, 2010.

Another view of Mt. San Jacinto

Here's another view of Mt. San Jacinto, the mountain in my header. I took this one last weekend when I was out and about early Saturday morning.

Billboards for Sunday Stills Challenge 101010

Ugh. I HATE billboards. I avoid taking photos of them. So, this week's challenge was "billboards". Well, golly gee! The cities around here don't have any and they are prohibited in the cities. So, off to the "netherlands" I went. I spent Friday afternoon driving around the freeway and a couple of side roads. I actually found these out by the DUMP, on Palm Drive, near Desert Hot Springs. I mean, WHO wants photos of billboards? Oh, well. Here they are. Sunday Stills Challenge for 101010.

Sunday Stills~Mexican bird of paradise~100310

This week's challenge was red and green in the same photo. I have noticed all the Mexican bird of paradise plants in bloom right now and this one is right across the street from my house! Notice the red and yellow blossoms and the beautiful green foliage! I bought one of these early this summer, but it gets too much shade and mine isn't blooming. These LOVE full sun and lots of heat, so they are perfect desert plants! Sunday Stills Challenge for October 3, 2010.
