SkyWatch Friday (my thirteenth) -- Fall sky above Texas orchard

We call these things Horse Apples but their proper name is Osage Oranges. They grow on a lot of native trees around here and are generally called a nuisance.

The fruit can be used as insect repellent but it is hard to get into a spray bottle.

Down the road a bit is this ornamental pear tree in bloom. Many of the pear trees are in bloom here right now. This is one of ours in the front yard.

I blame it on shock caused by Hurricane Ike, their system is messed up and they think they have to make blooms so late in the year.

One single impression: Serendipity


I came for dinner
nice landlord did have
running late I was
try to save the night

If the food's all gone
then enjoy the dance
don't waste the evening
try to save the night

Surprise oh surprise
saved a plate they did
will eat with my friend
going to save the night

Waiting too this girl
that's how met my love
she to be my wife
saved the night we did

Not came saw went—stayed
behold life's mystery revealed
