Sightings

We have had some beautiful cloud formations that change throughout the day. The color of the sky is so blue, and the sun shines brightly but is not the hot sun of summer. These are our November days. Perfect for walking, but the sun is gone by 5:00 now, so I have to schedule accordingly.

I was so surprised to find these on my walk yesterday. I’ve never seen any mushrooms like this except in books.

In my yard, my Mexican marigold plant is in full bloom. The more I trim it, the more it grows. It covers an area the size of a small car.

This next photo is one I took from my car on the way to my mom’s house. We have a lot of packing to do there. Most of it we will donate to charity. It was Sunday morning so there was very little traffic on the freeway. Sunday morning is the only time the freeway is not completely packed with cars. Usually you would not see the road in a photo like this, just solid cars.

Today was my day volunteering at the shelter. This little guy was there. I’m sure he had been someone’s pet. He was very friendly and continued to wag his tail while we talked to him.

The November theme for Mullerin Art blog is mark making with the color gray. I have to think of some ideas to make my own marks, but here are some I found in the neighborhood.

a tree.

fence.

tire marks on a curb.

Finally, there is a store called Anthropologie that always has the most creative window displays. This was their most recent.

Not a lot to report, just sharing some recent sightings. Enjoy your days. Thank you very much for visiting my blog.

  1. Yes, it’s really wonderful to follow your series of beautiful pictures. It feels a little bit like travelling and your fotos often show sceneries I would have taken a picture of too. Your Mexican Gold looks amazing and the picture you took on the street is great and the little piglet looks so cute while the artsy exhibit is really an eye catcher!

  2. your posts are always so newsy and interesting with good photos. It’s like talking with someone over the fence about the things they have seen or done lately.

    Last Thursday night/early Friday morning (we took off at 12 a.m. on friday) we had to drive to LAX from the mountains through rush hour traffic and also a three day holiday and the traffic was horrendous – i hadn’t been in that kind of traffic in years….I have to say i probably won’t go back to LA in this lifetime, lol. We flew to jamaica for my son’s wedding and what a tiring trip but the wedding was beautiful.

  3. beautiful textures of Wood… i love how it Looks like the cactus has an antenna;) a nice stroll you take us with… and yes, these early dark days, not my fave time of the year.
    have a great week!

  4. your nature markmaking finds are really fantastic. good inspiration for drawing and painting!!
    miss piggy is so cute and your marigoldflowers are so beautiful. here we have grey sky all the time…
    best wishes, mano

  5. I just love to read your blog–its always so interesting. That little pig looks so friendly and hopeful. The first tree trunk you show-the one which looks kind of reddish–what kind of a tree is that? Your marigold bush (I didn’t know there was such a thing) is really wonderful and lucky you to have an Anthropologie store near year–they have such interesting things-the closest to me is in Kansas City about 150 miles away.
