Fun Friday: Night of Astrology

It’s About That Time!

With temperatures getting colder next week and winter knocking on our door, it’s about time for Bald Eagles and Short-eared Owls to again take residence in Missouri for the winter. In fact, I saw an adult eagle soaring over a field near my home just a week or so ago. And yesterday, a good friend […]

We really haven’t had a winter, yet. But seeing the bright colors of summer, while recently editing some old images, has already got me thinking of next spring! Just seeing the bright and vivid colors of wildflowers, like this Tall Bellflower that readily grows along the woodline of my rural Missouri home, really makes me […]
