Monday Sunrise.......

It is early morning and the SAC Air Force base has one single jet out in the area.  Can you see the small silver streak of the beginning of a jet stream.

The very same day in the afternoon you can see the evidence or more flying maneuvers that were going on in the sky.  Lots of times them make crisscross patterns in the sky.

Looking up the street at my old silver maple, you can see a jet stream in the sky.  When time and money allows I will have to take this tree down.  I know that it is too old and too tall for the safety of the house. It will be sad when it is removed but chunks of dead limbs already are looming above the art gallery part of the house.

The last of the phlox that is sheltered is still trying to bloom.  Some of these days it will all be frozen and flatten out onto the ground.  This has been my longest blooming season for this plant that I have ever had.

kThe fall activities continue outside and I can see that the birch tree is still shedding its leaves.  I hope everyone has a good day this Monday and thanks for stopping by today.

I do see the beginning of the tiny jet streak! OH, how I love the beautiful silver maples! I hear the roots get everywhere. We just had a huge old tree removed from right beside our bedroom. It had hundreds of pine cones and was so healthy. I was very sad to see it go, but it was getting dangerous, just like yours. People plant small trees right beside houses, never thinking how big they will grow.

Very pretty fall photos. We just had several tall trees cut; just did not want to worry about them as this area in GA is famous for winter ice storms. We are fortunate that we have enough wooded areas to just drop the trees and let them decay.
