Nature Friday: NC State Fair

First as promised on Wednesday..
my Nephew Pup would like to share.....

The COOLEST thing happened as the sun was setting.
Volume up, please...We call it Coyotes at Sunset

Pup your ears were working overtime translating the sound mail from your distant relatives.
Uncle and I enjoyed the video and we are just 
so very proud and happy and delighted that you and your
family are able to take this trip and share with us.

Today I have the last of my NC State Fair photos

No words needed for these amazing mum displays
I think you can make arrangements to buy them when the fair is over.

Different groups set up their own gardens for judging
here are a few

 October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Here is a sea of Purple Hearts, which have a pinkish purple flower

Garden Railroad

  7. We get the occasional coyote around here, but we've never heard them singing like that.

    It was nice to see all those flowers. Everything here is covered with snow.

  8. The flowers are beautiful. I know someBODY enjoyed the Garden Railroad :) I'd love to have a fireplace like that on a back porch in MO!

  18. We hear coyotes around our house at night too. There sure were pretty displays at your state fair.

  21. We haven’t been to a state fair in years! Louisiana’s state fair was in the city where we lived but it got so filthy and dangerous, we had to stop going. Such a shame because I love the fair. Y’all’s looks wonderful.
