POTD: Strange Fish

Posted on

On an evening walk, I passed by our local Board of Elections. This was sitting at the corner of the steps. I wasn’t sure if I was going to laugh or run away. ~Vic

These were taken in downtown Georgetown, Texas, the County Seat of Williamson County. About a month later, I left Texas and returned to NC. ~Vic

POTD: Silk Tree

Posted on

Fabaceae family, Mimosoideae clade, Albizia genus and Julibrissin species. It is commonly referred to as a Mimosa tree but, that isn’t quite right. It’s also called a Persian silk tree, a pink silk tree and a pink siris. North Carolina State University considers it to be invasive. It’s still pretty and it smells so good. ~Vic

This belonged to the gentleman that used to cut our grass. Unfortunately, he passed away a few months back. I miss him. ~Vic

POTD: Asteraceae

This could be a Daisy or a Mum. They are in the same family. Mums usually come out in the Autumn so, I’m going with some form of Daisy. ~Vic

POTD: Glass Jar

Posted on

Out on an evening walk, passing by a house with a stone wall, I saw this. I have no idea why it was there or what kind of liquid it holds. No, I didn’t taste it. ~Vic

POTD: Lost Booties

Posted on Updated on

[Update blogger and skincare specialist Ruth has pointed out my terrible storytelling and possible crimes against proper sentence structure (I’m so laughing, Ruth…). No, I didn’t find these booties walking down the sidewalk all by themselves. I should have inserted “while I was” ahead of “walking”, hopefully indicating that *I* was doing the walking, not the empty booties. Thanks, Ruth. I really must behave myself in the future!]

Found these […] walking on the sidewalk. The stone on this wall is at the corner of the James Cheek house property (c. 1875). I guess they weren’t wanted anymore.

I am forever finding strange things in this town. ~Vic

Flower Moon 2021

Posted on Updated on

I’ve done two previous posts. I did the big write-up in 2019. The second post in 2020 had some older pix. My stupidphone still can’t get a clear moon shot but, it does make an artistic blur. Today’s Full Moon for EDT occurred at 7:13a but, tonight’s Moon rise was around 10:20p. Howl for me! ~Vic
