These Wooly catepillars are all over the place these days.  I think there is an Old Wive’s Tale about catepillars and how severe of a winter we will have??  I did hear one that tells us that the number of foggy mornings in the month of August predicts the number of days of snow we will have this winter….we had 13!  Four were very heavy!!  Heard this from our local weathergal.

Sunday Stills Challenge – Landscapes

Posted in Uncategorized on October 13, 2013 by dibear

When I think of the subject “Landscapes” I have to say I live in the middle of a beautiful “Landscape”!  EastTennessee is truely a beautful part of our country.  We love it no matter what season it is.  We are fast approaching one of the most beauiful times of the year here with the Fall color, although we need about two more weeks to reach peak color.  We are lucky to live in the foothills of the Appalacian mountain chain, about 50 miles from the Great Smoky Mountains.

This was a very busy week for us so I selected “landscape” shots from my archieves.

Since Ed hasn’t been home in awhile our bird seed feed bin is empty!  So I haven’t lured any birds close enough to the house to photograph. :)  I do have lots of archieve pictures so that is what I’ll be sharing for this challenge.
