This young family was lighting and letting sail several billowy candle lantern balloons over Pewaukee Lake this evening. So pretty against the deep blue of the sunset. (Sorry for the grainy photo - this was taken with my shaky cell-phone!) See more "SkyWatch Friday" feature photos here.

I received this pretty coral pink begonia a few years ago from my mother-in-law. It spends summers on our patio and in "over-winters" in our chilly dining room during the winter. This year, it took almost all summer to finally re-bloom and now it is quite spectacular! (Thanks, Dolly!)

After talking to a few people, it's apparently been an especially prolific year for the Sphinx Moth. They're also known as the Hummingbird Moth because of their similar size and mannerisms, and usually come out at dusk and feed on the bright flowers around our patio. This one was flitting around the flowers beds at work right outside my window!

Simmons Woods sunset with a silhouette of the old "look-out" tree. Has a spooky, Halloween feel, doesn't it?

This image shows the underside of an Orb Weaver Spider (that happens to be missing a back leg) - and while not so eensy-weensy - it's actually considered a "good" spider as it traps and eats garden pests such as flies, beetles, and mosquitos. Found this one setting up shop on our honeysuckle vine.

It has been a great season for our apple trees this year. We have two trees: a 'Golden Delicious' and a 'Honeycrisp' - a hybrid which yields these pretty, pink-blushed tart & juicy apples; great for eating and cooking.
I'm a day late with this entry, but you can see more "pink-themed" posts for September at City Daily Photo.
