My World Tuesday: At the End of the Day

IMG 9484

This guy really does have it all buttoned up. He has survived a few torrential downpours over the past few weeks and is still standing. What goes beyond me is how those crows have fared as well. Perhaps this guy's more of a carecrow than a scarecrow.

The same downpours denuded most of the trees around here so that there is no canopy; the sky is wide open. Nevertheless, there are a few tenacious trees who are not ready to let their leafy robes fall tot eh ground. So it goes. We're all different.

  1. Hmm... denuding, disrobing... oh you mean the trees. Sorry. LOVE the tree that still has its clothes on though. Brilliant!

    And the "carecrow" cracked me up. Truly. You're such a card.

  2. I love when the sun hits a Fall tree just right and it glows. Beautiful capture.

  3. I often wish my trees would all come down at once, and I could collect all the fallen leaves in one "swell foop"! But you remind me think it's nice to have a few hang on, just for the pleasure of the color.

  4. The crow on the scarecrows hat seems to have had a few too many ..aaa candy bars.

    It looks a lot like this here now. Not as many leaves on the trees. I should get out and rake. I must get out and rake. I will get out and rake...sometime...soon.

  10. It's been an odd fall to say the least. It peaked down here last Thursday. Even without sunlight, the trees were magnificent. Friday? the main color was over and during Saturday's rain, most of the leaves came off.
    Love "care"crow!

  14. I have never seen a scarecrow with its own crows. They look very friendly. I like the contrast on the second picture between the green grass, the gray trees, and the yellow leaves.

  16. Are you poetic w/ even knowing it or was that purposeful? --Your shots always interest me-- We are all different aren't we? the forest is more interesting and fun that way isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Someone must have done a good job making the scarecrow for it to last so well. Nice to see one tree survived the bad weather...for now. ;-)

    I like the idea of a "carecrow" It could be just as effective protecting crops if it took really good care of them so they didn't want to fly back to the corn fields.

  25. Awww, a carecrow! He is a bit too cute to be scary I think--lucky crows!

  32. i like the paperbirds in the scarecrow. and you are right, it seem to attract more birds lol. the second pic is simply a delight.

  33. Resilience - even the scarecrows have their share! Beautiful shot of the grassy meadow and tree. And a touching post on the rose and your Grandmother! Those memories are precious. For me the purple iris reminds me of Mom. The ones we have came from her garden.

  37. Naked or clothe, trees are beautiful! Nicely written, Sandy! Your scarecrow isn't at all scary -teehee. Love those paper birds clipped around him.

    ReplyDelete
  38. "Care crow" was too funny but it looks like someone gave him "the bird"!

  39. I haven't seen a really good scarecrow in a very long time! I sure miss New England in the fall!

  47. I'll bet the crows think that guy is cute, not scary!
    Our trees seem to differ a lot in leaf change and loss, even for the same species in close proximity. Seems weird, but I guess even trees demand their individuality.

  48. I love the scarecrow's face and the way my brain keeps seeing the two brown buttons as eyes and a fold as the mouth even though I know the buttons are arranged into a happy face. The human brain loves to make faces out of things.

  49. What a cute scarecrow! A few of our trees are completely bare but so many are filled with beautiful leaves yet.
