Blue Jay. While they are beautiful, they're pricks. I've seen them pester so many songbirds for kicks. This is the snotty fifth grade bully of the birds.

A gold glass bottle among fall leaves.

The bottle belongs to a woman who runs a small farm full of grape vines, huge vegetable patch, glass jewels in the trees,  guinea hens running around and a license plate on her car that says “earth 911”.  She really knows how to show up the neighboring subsidized farm operation’s annual production of corn-soy-corn-soy-corn-soy-corn-soy. Boring! (and not much to put on the table)

The red bush is a Burning Bush.

  4. such great colors the likes of which Bob & I don’t get to see much of in Texas (except some parts of deep East Texas)! And yeah, blue jays and mockingbirds, too, are real bullies

      It is brilliantly beautiful here in the fall, but the dark gray days of winter almost do me in… Do your days shorten up much in the winter Rev. Paul?
