Cora Leads A Tour Of Galla Meadow in the Fall

 Gum tree, dark green is Maple and yellow is an Ash and Miss Cora!

 Beautiful Black Gum trees

Zacchaeus climbed Sycamore Tree for the Lord he wanted to see.
Luke 19: 1-10
King James Version
19 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
2 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.
4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.
6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
7 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
8 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

 This is Astrid's tree--a Tulip Poplar

 Sigrid's tree is a Red Maple.  I did not doctor this photo.  This is how her tree looks.

 Ingrid's tree is a Bradford Pear.

 Laura's flowers and the bird house I built for her.

 Maple tree in my yard.

 The tree on the right is my Red Maple...and below again.  I don't know what kind of tree is next to my Maple.  It is pretty.  Mom planted it.  I just don't know what it is.

 Red leaves on the Black Gum.  Top is a cluster and bottom is a huge single tree.  It is prettier than the photo.

 Hawk--another thing I really despise.

Sissy and Clue are watching for something to chase.  Feist are alert dogs.  Any sound or movement does not get by them.  They are loving, family dogs but also tree dogs.

Morning Stroll

 Betty took these this morning on her walk.  Fog over Galla Lake, Dobs, Maple in front of our house and a clump of Gum trees changing to red.

New Bed For Cora

 I built Cora a new bed for the porch today.  I will put the dog heating sleeping pad in after I drill a hole for the cord.  She seemed to like the bed and I know she will when we get her warmer in it.  These warmers are made especially for dogs and come in different sizes.  All my Feists on the zip lines and in the pens have nice warm houses.  Cora is set for winter now.

Pups From Past

These two pups are from two years back.  I hear from some of the folks that own my pups and some I never hear from again.  I raised a pup long ago named Clyde Barrow.  He went to a family way south in Texas.  He was Bonnie Sue Parker's litter mate.  I still wonder about him and how his life turned out.

 It was hot 10 days ago and now it is really almost cold.  Where is fall?  We just go from summer to winter!

Garden Turned Over

Got our garden close to the house turned over before the rain.  It is cooler now.

 I saw these photos of Matt Howell at his photo bucket.  You can see he loves all kinds of outdoor fun.  He also loves squirrel hunting.  Matt is a teacher at Mansfield, Ar.

Pond Almost Dry

Our pond is almost dry.   We have gotten several rains but mostly just drizzles.  It is drizzling tonight.
