Aware

{A}

1.  A new road, a new fence, and a new flag- seen during a drive in the country with my daughter and granddaughter.


2.  My cousin marked himself & wife safe for a facebook safety check during the recent bombings.  Thankfully, touring in the country, but not at the airport when it happened. 


3.  Arkansas Game and Fish are excited about a sighting of a rare bird in our area- the Swallow Tailed Kite- usually a coastal bird.  I would love to see this bird soaring, but I am wondering why it is not in it's normal area.

4. Pretty bright yellow weeds always catch my eye.  I have no idea of name...I thought maybe Jerusalem Artichoke, but the leaves don't look right to me.

5.  Little Man, checking out the bottle of skin so soft I am about to rub on him to ward off these horrible horse flies.   Nope, not having any of that, so he went without this night.  Mark got him the next evening, though.   

  sharing with  good fencesFriday's Hunt {starts with a, favorite, macro},  Saturday's Critters, and  randomly with Amy for 5 on Friday

  2. I do love coming with your on your photo trips. Thank you. And I glad that Little Man didn't win the day on the skin liniment though - as he probably is.

  3. All looking good up your way, super fence, the flag??? Facebook safety news, what a relief. And that face that says " None of this for me tonight!!". As the saying is down here...Priceless!!

  4. So glad your cousin was okay! My brother in law has been to that airport a couple of times in recent months, on business. Scary.

  5. Hello, Terri! It is important to be aware while traveling. I feel safer traveling inside the USA than I would going outside the country. I love the pretty flower and your horse Little Man is beautiful. Some times the Swallow-tailed Kited can be seen here too, they are a rare sighting. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

  8. little man is beautiful, down here they have to have fly masks, we have gnats that are giant sized, flies and mosquitoes. hubby uses skin so soft on his legs when working in the garage that is full of the bugs i mentioned above.. it does stink so no wonder Little Man did not want it. glad you heard from your family on FB

  11. Glad your cousin was safe....scary stuff!
    Hope you see that bird and get a picture, too!

  12. I used to travel a lot, but not now. To me it is not safe to go anywhere out of the country. Love the look on the horse.

  13. Beautiful picture of that horse. He almost looks purple.

  14. Tough to be traveling near a tragedy like that. Beautiful area, I was there in 2003.Maybe a Western Sunflower

  15. I wonder if Little Man wanted to change his mind later on.
    Pretty blossom, I don't know of any around here.
    Family travel is worrisome. Glad they have a place to 'check in'.

  16. Love all your photos but the horse steals the show!

    Happy Day, weekend and Happy 4th of July in the USA to you.

  17. Animals usually reject what's good for them. Like the doggies crying when they get dragged into the vet office

  20. I like that fence and flag.
    Little Man was sure eyebaling you.
    The world is such a scary place, so glad your family is safe.

  21. We've been seeing the Swallow tailed Kite here for a couple of months now. I hope you get to see one...they are very beautiful and graceful. Glad you got good news from your cousin. Hugs, Diane

  22. I'm glad to hear your family members are OK after the bombing. I love the yellow flower, weed or otherwise. Little Man is certainly giving you a look! Ha! Have a great weekend!

  23. I love Little Man! He is beautiful! Like that weed too!

  24. So glad your cousin and his family were safe and able to let everyone know. This is a scary time. Did not know that about Skin So Soft and horses. I knew it worked on people.
    I'll have to look up the Swallow Tailed Kite so I will know what to look for.

  25. nice new fence... glad everyone is safe. hope the skin so soft helps your horse. great captures all around. have a great night~

  29. Gorgeous animal with such beautiful eyes. Glad to hear your family were safe.

  30. Animals usually know more than we...maybe global warming (that theory is not necessarily the belief of this writer) is true and the coast is moving here. My elementary teacher used to say palm trees would grow in our state one day.

    Have a great weekend.

  31. Beautiful pictures. The horse doesn't quite look sure whether he wants you around or not! Hopefully getting rid of the flies will help. Have a great weekend

  32. As always beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing,
    Happy July4th celebration!

  33. Don't you wish we could explain "it's for your own good" to the animals? One glimpse of the bottle sent our horses and cattle running. The dogs will tolerate it if I make them but they act like they've been punished and their hurt feelings will never recover. Sillies!

  34. Such a beautiful horse, such a deep chestnut! Great news about your family, world travel does seem to be a bit tricky at the moment. Have a great weekend xx

  35. Lovely photos...and that's a very patriotic looking fence, Happy July 4th! Coming over from Good Fences :)

  36. Lovely moments from your week, especially the news that your family were all safe and sound. That is very good indeed isn't it. Thank you for joining in with Five On Friday. I hope you have a fun weekend! xx

  37. Glad your family is safe, we've lived in Turkey and flown through that airport many times. I use Skin So Soft too, didn't know you could use it on horses.

  38. mighty nice yellow weeds in your next of the woods

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hopefully the SSS works for your horse, at least it smells nice.

  40. Such a pretty horse, is it yours? I will think it is.
    Your flower is very pretty, an Arkansas native plant? I had a lot of yellow flowers, little ones for my "Y" but then I found my (really, I did) Yellow Submarine. It was so neat. All our wait staff, after they spotted it, were singing the song, "Yellow Submarine." Next time for the flowers.

  41. Interesting 5, love the close up of the horse - what a good looking chap!
    bon weekend.

  42. Yellow flowers scream summer don't they. Glad your cousin is safe and I wonder what the horse was thinking!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hello Terri, I love the gorgeous horse. Wonderful post and photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your 4th of July weekend!

  44. I love that flag in the garden. I wish we in Great Britain were more patriotic. If we did that we might be labelled as "strange" in some way or racist.

  45. Pretty fence photo, beautiful wildflower, love the horse!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh lovely shots. Of course I love the horse. But they are all great. Your photography is dramatic. I wish I had more time and a better camera!
    Thanks so much for coming over and taking the time to comment. I'm not likin' Blogger and Google right now. I've followed you now and I signed up for your emails so I'll come by more often.
    Have a wonderful 4th.

  47. The yellow flower looks like it might be a sunflower of some sort. That bird's name had me thinking of a kite in flight. When I took a peek at the photo of the bird, it reminded me of a kite ready to take flight.

  48. Great shots...love the horse....he is truly watching you. Amazing how smart animals are!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Glad your cousin is safe. Beautiful images. I always had that same problem when I tried to spray (or wipe on) my cows for flies. Silly critters. Thanks so much for joining in Friday's Hunt. Hope you have a great week!

  50. Looks as if he's saying, "You're gonna what?!" Nasty old horse flies...does this stuff really work because those things are vicious at the lake?
