The Return Of Mr. Blue Sky

The skies over Charleroi On Mon have been dark and cloudy for the last two days, so I was quite surprised to see the sun peeping through early this afternoon. I was so excited by this that I whipped out my camera phone and took a few shots.

I'm crazy that way. I know.

Bloomin' Flowers

This is quite possibly the last bloom of the year for the African Daisy. This pink flower did better than all the rest and we had 3 plants, 2 that we purchased and one volunteer than came up from last year's seeds. I'm really pleased with the pink daisy.


The 2nd hibiscus is still going strong with many blossoms left to go. Our more tree like plant as already bloomed itself out for the year.

This little bull was so full of love. He also missed his mama something awful. He was mooing up a storm when we came to see him at Round Hill Park. He was also giving out sandpaper tongue cow kisses to anyone and everyone, in hopes they had an udder.

Flowers In My Backyard Again

My zinnia from hell and my two hibiscus. The second one isn't quite the color it actually is. It's more plum. The gorgeous hot pink in the first shot is pretty accurate. Not bad for a camera phone.

The Carousel At Kennywood

Another lovely carosel. I have to say I like the carosel at Idlewild better, but that doesn't make this one any less attractive to the eye. The building that encloses it makes it difficult to photograph unless you're close. So my shots are all inside. After all, you want to see the horses, right?

Butterfly In My Garden

The lantana and zinnia really seem to attract butterflies. This yellow guy was really having a field day in our flower garden.


Butterflies have such delicate wings. This little guy looks like he's weathered a few storms Posted by Picasa

Night Shots At Kennywood

Here are a few shots of the concession stands and rides at night. I love the look of the park when everything is lit up.


The Wave Spinner is my favorite ride. I could spend the whole day riding that one. Posted by Picasa
