    2. Yes, that is true! And if I don't get to sleep soon, the sun will be up again! Thank you for sharing your lovely photography.
      Admiring you from afar and until tomorrow, Sunshine.

    3. Is it too early to wait for tonights post? Ah, I am only teasing you Brown Eyes!
      I only stopped in during my lunch to see your photographs agai and say hello. My morning has
      not unfolded in a agreeable way to me and I knew exactly what would cheer me!

      I agree with Hilary that our robins are different. English Robins are small and round. And did Gloria Baker
      say she was originally from England? You would know about English Robins, then Gloria!

      Until this evening then! Cheers! Vincent

    4. It's WAY too early to be waiting! That post isn't written or even planned in my head yet. ha.

      Your little English Robins are adorable!

    5. Good evening, sweet lady. Or good afternoon! Please, I'm asking you to let me know if you are receiving my emails. I don't know if the address I have is a good one. I wrote something just for you this morning that I think you will enjoy. I only want to confirm that you have it. That would be much appreciated. I enjoyed your snowy wonderlnd and I know you are enjoying it also. Admiring you from afar, little snow angel. Cheers!

  7. You sandwich is making me hungry. Maybe I will have something similar for lunch tomorrow.
    Love your autumn robin. She is beautiful sitting in the midst of the crab apples.
    And, I like your basket of eggs too.

    1. So far she's stayed up high in the tree.
      Any lower and she'll be kitty feed!

    2. She may have heard you throw stones too
      So stay away from your direct view

  13. what a beautiful collection of this and that, I loved this, the four leaf clover was an amazing fin, your job is like a treasure hunt!

  14. You live in beauty Miss Betsy with the perfect artist eye.
    Now I see why Mrs. Robin hasn't headed down south. That tree if full to bursting. Why fly down to worms when she has that bounty. I've
    also decided that if poor Nugget falls over from the sight of his brethren wrapped around your throat...Tell him it's cat hair. hahaha

  15. These are all lovely. That sammy looks sooooo good. You take amazing moon pics. I don't know how you get so much detail. Mine are blurry and often look like a street lamp|! :-) And that four-leaf clover reminds me of fingerprints...

  16. Hi Betsy .. just stunning photos - and it's not often I feel hungry looking at blogs at breakfast time .. but yes please - send that sandwich over!!! Interesting to see your Robin .. she is unlike ours ... but what a glorious photo you've taken of her ... then the sunset and fiery leaves ..

    Great memories for our grey day! Cheers Hilary

  17. I like these posts and am now hungry. I marvel at your moon shots. Spectacular! I have a big fancy camera and get nothing but a blurry slice of cheese in the sky. What's with that?

    1. I have NO idea. You should be able to put my moon photos to shame! Why don't you try doing it like me...take off your fancy lens and just zoom in. My zoom is 26x. Then hold your breath and click!

  18. You have such a knack for getting the perfect shot. That robin photo is particularly gorgeous, the colors so fall-perfect.

    1. It's kinda funny that Robins are associated with spring, but they really look great with the fall colors! I still have 6-8 of them hanging around. They are enjoying the crab apples!
