water tower wednesday - ivy


this past Sunday 
standing in the school yard 
where the weekly Green Flea is held 
I looked up 
to see the ivy 
on that building 
had turned 
from green to mostly red 
indicating a 
stop
before 
we segue 
into the holiday season 

it almost distracted me from the real prize
the
water tower!

lets not forget 
Thanksgiving 
leads us into the holidays 
Thanksgiving 
comes 
first!

  8. That ivy has almost closed off a few of the windows on the building. And it's definitely ready for the holidays. Ah yes, the watertower. Reminds me to be on the alert for you should I ever see one around here:-)

  9. Definitely Thanksgiving first, otherwise what follows is meaningless!
    Grandma says that the deep reds we are being graced with this fall is due to an early, deep frost ... causing that stop before we segue; as you so eloquently said. :)_
    Blessings.

  10. Ivy growing on a wall like that looks so lovely but apparently it doesn't do brickwork any good - shame isn't it?

  11. Okay... Thanksgiving... so here comes another 5 pounds to my waistline. I may just skip it this year if Hubby will agree. He enjoys fixing a turkey though, so we'll see.

  18. Decided to go bloghopping over at NaBloPoMo, and so far I have found two blogs with photos from my neighborhood. Love the reservoir header, there's nothing like walking round it on a crisp fall day. Enjoyed the UPS/Marathon post - it's a real service on their part. Waving at you from the Upper West Side. I shall return.

  20. Love that ivy--and of course, the water tower.
    Isn't it awful, that Halloween ended and the Christmas ads began.
    We mustn't lose Thanksgiving...

  21. Beautiful ivy - and water tower, too.

    According to Walmart, since Halloween is over, it must be Christmas. But I think Thanksgiving is still on the calendar...

  22. IMHO you captured the prize - the climbing ivy. No words to express how stunning that pic is. You really have a great love affair with the camera. Cheers!!
