The Grand Finale' !
I took what will probably be my last color tour today...so for all who care to see them,this will be the last thread I post on the beauties of nature in the Ozarks.
It started out this morning with a lovely sunrise;
Then a trip around the county road at the reverse of my other trip;
I was close to our side road, but decided to take a longer trip. First, along the highway to Ponca,
At the bottom of the hill at Steelcreek, a group of trail riders, heading for a trail along the Buffalo River area.
Then my favorite spot...the bluffs along the Buffalo at Steelcreek;
And a huge Beech tree, going back up the Steelcreek road,
Going back to Compton area;
A view across a neighbor's field :
On down the county road;
Some of cousin's cows;
down 'our' hill;
And at home'
The Gingko is backed by colorful oaks
A spirea prunifolia
a yellow-leaved Red Maple!!!!!
I am going into lurking mode, and will not post on the Idyll's threads unless something major happens. I detect that I am just mostly repeating everyone else's thoughts, and am 'very' boring! If I should be called 'home' before you hear from me again...hopefully Tim will let you all know.
I really have nothing interesting to contribute. I do not 'dance to the same drummer' as the majority of you, as you all well know!
Thank you for all the kindness( and tolerance) that has been shown me over the years.
