Come In! We are taking a ride to the Country today.
(which is about 2 miles for me)
Rosebud by: brendasue
The gardens at Kates Cabin reflect the look of late August after days of 100 degree heat and not too much rain. The knock out roses are still blooming and the crape myrtles. And though it is very hot, my mind knows from experience that it will begin to cool somewhat.
The days are getting shorter and the plants respond by slowing down and going to seed. School has started and yes, I saw Christmas Decorations at Walmart! I guess we better swing into fall.

Hi Rocket! by: brendasue
Here we are over on my favorite country road:
77 Sunset Strip (Texas).
The tree line behind Rocket is along Rainbow Creek.
Our photostudy today is about Rocket, the Flying Horse.
Hot Rocket by: brendasue
Does anyone know where Rocket is going?
What do you see, Rocket? by: brendasue
Yes, he is going to get a drink of water down at the pond like he always does in the afternoon. Today, he is hesitating and looking around. Horses can sense danger very well.
(I do not see anything or anyone).
Having a cool drink by: brendasue
Everything must be okay as Rocket has gone into the drink for a drink!
His eyes are still on guard for anything by: brendasue
Rocket sucks water up in his mouth to drink. Horses can drink alot of water at one time, but it will last them all day.
The pause that refreshes by: brendasue
Rocket continues drinking from the pond.
Still Drinking! by: brendasue
Rocket was very thirsty today. It is very hot around 100 degrees on August 29, 2010
Thinking about having a little more water by: brendasue
Rocket lifts his head from the water and seems to be thinking about having one more sip.
Yes, a little more water, please by: brendasue
Rocket is enjoying his water break on this peaceful lazy afternoon.
Something has 'spooked' Rocket by: brendasue
Oh my! The horse is scared and turned and ran from the water like a Rocket. What Happened?
(I do not see anything, which means nothing).
Rocket is so scared, he keeps running by: brendasue
Rocket is running for the top of the hill. Something was in the bushes by the pond that scared him really bad to make him run like this. Some things I know that would not scare Rocket would be turtles, coons, deer, armadillos, possums, rabbits, chickens, ducks or birds.
Somethings that could be here to scare Rocket:
Snake, fox, coyote, wolf or wild boar.
I did not see what is was. But whatever, if it scared that horse so bad, I do not want to see it. (It would not be a person).
Safe again on the hill by: brendasue
Rocket is okay and back at the top of the hill. I am heading home to the woods!
This concludes our photostudy today with Rocket. He did seem to be flying like a Rocket out of the water.
Spooky Dianthus by: brendasue
Spooky Dianthus is a great fall flower in this part of Texas (zone 9)Thanks for stopping in for a little Nature Break. Hope you enjoyed the countryside!
