Second Day of the Week.....

The light of the sun gives this photo a sense of movement.  It almost appears to be moving when the blades have not turned for years.

I shared the corn field on my Photo a Day yesterday.  The is long past due to be picked.  Normally the corn stalk turns a yellow color as it dies but this field has died down beyond that point.

As I looked through the field I really don't think the field produced a large amount of good ears of corn. I continue to be amazed as to how many of my blogger friends have not seen ripe field corn.

The corn could not be eaten at this stage by boiling it but it could be ground into a rough grind  to make corn bread. The corn you eat is grown in spring and really never could mature into a good field corn. Sweetcorn is a different variety of corn.

In contrast to the top photo I will share some zinnias that are still blooming as if it were summer. There are not to many of them but they do look like fresh blooms.

The vine on the blue gate is still doing well.  If I were home during the morning I could take shots of small red morning glory blooms.  When I get home from school the blooms are all closed up and finished.
The vines were transplanted there late in the spring and they sure took a long time to get started.  Once started though they have really become a great foliage vine as well as having flowers.

The weather continues to be normal around here and I wish it were warmer.  I continue to walk Barney at night and I bundle up for it now.  I wish everyone to have a good day today.  Thanks for stopping in today.

I love the windmill. You and Far Side Connie always share good photos of them.

Your blue gate is very pretty with the vine on it. We have a few marigolds still holding on, but most everything else has quit blooming.

We are not as cold as you are yet but Theo is cold-natured and shivers even at 60 degrees. I bet Barney is not affected by the cold, is he?

I wish you and Della a nice evening. Take care.
