END OF SEASON

It was foggy again this morning and I was wondering what would inspire me to make an interesting photoblog. I spotted some leaves lying on the ground and it got me thinking about the “End of Season” as in, things are changing as the year goes on and the seasons change.

This tree was loosing it leaves signaling the end of summer.

Out on the Ebey Prairie is noticed another sign of change.

I guess you could call this the final “End of Season”.

These are the very last of our crabapples.

The “Tin Farmers Family” have quite a ways to go before their “End of Season” but rust is certainly working on them.

This barn is sadly ending it’s season as well.

And now some “non theme” photos that I liked this morning. This is St. Mary’s Catholic Church in the fog.

What do you get when you have fog, a post and sunrise? A “Fire-stick”!

I walked down to the beach and took this foggy photo of the wharf.

FARM REFLECTION

This morning’s walk as out on the Ebey Prairie again after a big rainstorm and wind storm yesterday. It left lots of standing water in the farm fields and the reflections in this pond caught my eye.

I’ve been checking out this barn for a while and this morning the sun was just right for Mr. Canon  to get a good photo.

Over by Ebey’s Landing I looked across Admiralty Inlet to see what looked like Port Townsend burning. Of course for those who live around here knows that its’ steam from the Port Townsend Paper Company founded in 1928.

Back on my side of the island I saw these beautiful little Bubbleja Globosa, Orange Ball Bubbleja flowers.

I also saw this Lilac along the fence of our waste processing plant, how nice.

Down at the wharf there were two immature eagles. A early morning kayaker was getting up close an personal with one of them sitting on an old piling and lamp post.

The other eagle posed very nicely for Mr. Canon.

And finally for today I want to remind you about the upcoming Penn Cove Water Festival this Saturday the 18th. It’s a really fun time for families with lots of activities for kids and the Indian dugout canoes races are always fun to watch. You can read all about it HERE.
