Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday, and Good Fences

1. Autumn's Chill (Sky Watch Friday)
Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, October 2, 2017
It was a cool, windy day with misting rain when we met friends for lunch at the Pickwick Inn Restaurant on Monday. The restaurant overlooks Pickwick Lake with a view of the dam.

This Great Blue Heron seemed to be feeling the chill in the air, too.

2. River Traffic
On the Tennessee River near Pickwick Dam, October 2, 2017
After we drove across Pickwick Dam, we were surprised to see several Cabin Cruisers on the Tennessee River.



Is this one large enough to be called a yacht?

3. Tribute to Elvis sculptures
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, September 28, 2017
'Heartbreak Hotel'

'(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear'

4. Outside the Fence! (Good Fences Around The World)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, October 2, 2017
When driving along country roads you must watch for animals. This cow escaped her pasture and crossed the road right in front of us! We went to the farmhouse to tell the farmer that one of his cows was out, but there was no one home.

5. Farming: Soybeans
Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, October 2, 2017
When we were in Tennessee on Monday, we saw vast fields of soybeans (soya beans) almost ready for harvest. When the leaves die and fall off the plants, the Combines (harvesting machines) will be driven through the fields to gather the beans.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, October 3, 2017
The soybean harvest has already started here in northeast Mississippi. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, "The soybean is economically the most important bean in the world, providing vegetable protein for millions of people and ingredients for hundreds of chemical products." Source: Soybean

  1. ...there's no autumn chill here, it's more like summer. Most of the beans are in and the corn is browning up. Those guitars are great.

  2. Hello, Love the river views, boats and the guitars. The Heron is a great sighting. I have seen cows in the road, we have had horses and cows running down our street. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. Love the heron!!! What a view it has I bet!!!
    Great sightings and shared today Lea.

  4. Nice photos love from EuropÄ™

  5. I assume most people ignore how important soybeans are

  6. I love how calm the cow looks!

  7. I love it when the soybean fields turn yellow. Beautiful the chilly-looking lake shots. That heron does look a bit miserable.

  8. I enjoy those Elvis "guitars" in Tupelo. I've never been to Mississippi. "One day". We had our chill, but now it's warmed up again here in upstate New York.

  9. I love seeing the guitars. The great blue heron is one of my favorite birds. Fall means harvest time! Happy Friday!

  10. Pretty shots! I do believe that boat is large enough to be called a yacht.

  11. Hello from Idaho and found your blog though Alana. Gee that cow looks like the one that was loose the other day.
    If you fine the time stop in for a cup of coffee
