Wandering Camera for September

Today I am linking with my friend Soma's Wandering camera series, check out the others here...

These pictures are mostly from my walk this morning:
I believe this flower shows the state of my gardens this morning, pretty but slowly losing vigor and winding down.  We have had really hot days lately and lots of rain, even had a bout with tornadoes in the area but we are thankful that we were not affected by those and there were no serious injuries...there were pictures in the news of an Amish farm not far south of us having their house leveled and a poultry barn destroyed.  Quite a picture with all those chickens wandering in their field in the aftermath.
 It appears I will be able to make a small batch of pear butter soon...

 If I can keep this guy from picking them...this is the problem with dwarf fruit trees.
 I will need to be harvesting the grapes, the birds say they are ready...I see some evidence of them harvesting which means I better get to them soon.
 This is a picture of the brothers, they are getting along most of the time but Sam is still a bit pouty about his new friend moving in.
 My sunflower is preparing itself to become a tasty snack for the chickens.
 This is what is left of my hearth, we are in the process of switching from fireplace to wood stove...I can't bear to show you the state of the house right now, sigh.
 I know this is an awful picture but in my defense, I took it quick before rescuing the little girl from the big girl.  I brought a chick in for my son and I to love on last night and my cat was very interested.  No chicks were harmed, I promise.

Make sure to visit Soma and the others in her linky!!

Have a great day!

Pear Butter - hmmmm - never tried that, but when I see your pears and grapes I think PIE :) - and jam with the grapes. Great pictures with your camera - especially the action shot with the little chick. She'll have a story to tell when she goes back in with the others!

Great photoes, again. Here we have mostly rain and wind, so it's nearly impossible to go outside the door to take pictures. I used one of the few days without rain to take my La Passion to the beach.
