    Sharon, love the graphics, and your pictures are wonderful…That Hibiscus is a gorgeous color…Nice shots of the rose-breasted, hummingbird, and the ducks; I have a hummingbird feeder like yours…. The luna moth is really beautiful… Dusty is gorgeous; reminds me of my sister’s dog.

    As soon as I put fresh water out this afternoon this Song Sparrow showed up.

    It’s starting to look like fall around here.

    Today was another Hummingbird day in my backyard.

    I was thrilled to see the Rufous Hummingbirds in my yard again. They are smaller than the Anna’s and usually only show up for a 5 or 6 days in August.

    Good Morning Sharon and BYC friend’s!  What a nice collection of pix today.  That Luna Moth is something else.  I’ve never seen one, and the ‘hummers’ are always so delightful to watch.  The ducks and the Shelty are delightful, too!  Today, at noon, I’ll be having lunch with my widow ladies and then playing cards for several hours.  Gonna be a GREAT day!  This pix was one I took to show that we actually DID make it to Nova Scotia!

    On the way to Nova Scotia, we saw many little ‘inlets’ filled with boats of every size and shape and many were just docked and waiting, many were also IN USE and on the water.  This is just one of many, many, many such area’s we drove by and saw.

    Of course, the “Call of the Open Road” was always with us as we traveled and THIS VIEW was one of pure ‘Open-ness’ that was so true of much of this whole area of our country and Canada.  The BIG SKY and ENDLESS FOREST’S were seen on every hand and we often saw roadside signs warning us of “Moose Crossing” and to be alert.  Sadly, we never saw any moose except on signs.

    Of course, we also saw LOTS AND LOTS of Ocean as we drove further and further east and the beauty and peace was seen on every hand!

    Today’s last photo is of just one of several Monuments dedicated to various people’s who have shared and made our Country’s great.   (U.S. and Canada)  This trip my son and I took was so AWESOME and yet we missed so much because we didn’t do our homework about what to see and places to visit before we left.  Guess we’ll have to ‘go again’ someday?
