That's My World - Shots from around my house on Sunday

I didn't have any ideas this week, so I thought I'd fall back on showing you some recent shots from around my house.


These shots are all from yesterday (Sunday) which started as a rather wet and rainy day.


I love the way the berries look when they are dripping with rain drops. There is also a lot of different fungi because of all the rain we have had recently.


I tend to assume the red mushrooms are poisonous but something has been eating away at them.


Many of the flowers have already gone to seed but I have a late bunch of black eyed susan in bloom which is like a bonus plant.


I also had a late bunch of lantana start to bloom after most of the plants were spent.


The sun finally came out after a morning rain and the afternoon clouds were pink against a blue sky.

I used one of those very same red mushrooms for a Ruby Tuesday about a year ago. Okay, not the same ones but the same kind.

Awesome macro work here!

Such beautiful colours that really sum up this time of year just as summer has given way to autumn.

I LOVE the raindrops! And such beautiful and colorful photos! Your place is delightful, Carver!

Have a great week!

Lovely shots. If the red mushroom is a fly agaric, then it's toxic - but snails still love it. As do reindeer, who probably get high on it.

Gorgeous colors! You did a great job at shooting macro. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful pictures.

Same weather where I live in VA. I like the sky photo best. Sad to see the flowers stop blooming.

Great rain drop shots. I wish we have your rain. But the glow of the sun on the last last made it just the culmination of a wet day.

Oh you had some rain. I am like that sometimes I simply don't have anything in mind to show. But you ended up sharing beautiful photos you see around you. I love that lantana. I cant seem to grow it. Another lantana just died.

All your photos are excellent. I love the rain drops on the berries and the lantana.
Thanks for sharing. I also appreciate your visit and comment!

that sure is a beautiful world!

I'm assuming this is outside your house, not inside. The red mushroom can't be poisonous if it's being eaten. Really lovely photos.

Carver: What a neat look at the flora from your yard, great photos.

Isn't it amazing how differently you see things when you're in your photographer role? You've found great beauty in tiny spots. The raindrops in the first two are fantastic.

Love the rainsoaked dripping plants. Amonitas are poisonous in quantity but apparently if nibbled sparingly give you halluciations. Many snails and slugs are immune to mushroom poison that would easily kill us.

Sensational shots, Carver!

what a fiery looking clouds

you have so much out there to see and abundant of rain too =)
