Snapshot: on my window sill

Pink David Austin rose (Eglantyne),
rescued from the cold frost,
keeping my almost-blooming violet company.

Autumn Construction

The leaves beginning to turn, the mornings are cool, 
the night skies are filled with stars -- my favorite time of the year. 
And, also time for the annual 'scarecrow' to make an appearance on our front porch.

Scarecrow construction with Papa Bill & three 'helpers'
After the stuffing there was a head in need of a face - artistic opinions varied greatly

In all his glory, sitting in a rocker on our front porch --
our Monkees present 'Billy Bob Joe Sparkle'
I'm sure you can guess which name was chosen by a 5 year old?!
