Outdoor Wednesday

Can't believe it is time again for "Outdoor Wednesday" hosted by Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ . Thanks Susan for hosting this weekly event. Due to all the rain we have had, I have not been able to do much picture taking outside lately. This is the 3rd day in a roll, that we have actually had sunshine and a clear blue sky, but where I have been the last couple of days the beautiful Fall colors were just not there. On one of the many rainy days that we have had, I went thru some CD's of pictures I had taken this time last year, so thought I would share some of them with you. The first one, is of one of over 20 of the famous Germantown Horses that were on display at different locations last Summer, then auctioned off in October, 2008. Many of them are still on display around the city. Being October, I thought this would be a good time to post this pink lady's photo ( love her pink tennis shoes). :-) There is a website that gives detailed information about the horse, the artist who decorated the horse, its name, etc., but I am having problems locating the site. When I do locate it, I will add that info. I had it bookmarked on my computer that took a nose dive several months ago. Isn't she a beauty - I think she is my favorite. Photobucket

Hope you are having a great week.

Wonderful shots!

I espcially enjoy cities who do these fun animals... once i got to see BULLS, moose and now a couple of horses! They are sooo fun.

If you have a moment — I would love you to stop by and say hi!

I love it when cities have artists decorate a sculpture. Milwaukee did Beasties one year, and I have see cows and cars in other cities. I even bought a sculpture to decorate some year - See this blog for my horse!

Those pin cushion mums are wonderful! I wish I could grow them! I'm pretending I didn't see the pink horse with the pink sneakers... I only had this one glass of wine... I mean its not like its a pink elephant... right?

What a Pink Beauty!!! Are you in the Memphis area? If this Pretty Lady decked out in Pink represents the others, it must have been a beautiful sight.
Georgetown is a great place to visit. We had a son living close by while attending Southern Univeristy of Optometry and we would visit often.
The Fall Pumpkin show is delightful:)

I love all of the mums and pumpkins. It just makes me want to get a cup of hot apple cider and a cream cheese frosted pumpkin bar. This is my favorite time of the year. I hope we have a long autumn and we can hold off winter for a long while. (((HUGS))) Luv~Betty
