Random-osity for February 8

The Good: Here's a nice mural in Luray, Virginia.  It depicts the White House Ferry that operated on the South Fork of the Shenandoah from 1870 to 1910. There's a sign on the right that tells us the story of the ferry. (Sharing with Monday Murals.)

The Random: I own a townhouse in Woodstock, Virginia and the tenants are moving out because they are purchasing a house. This is a nice 2-story home across from Fort Valley Nursery and it will be available on April 1st. (Details here.)

The Fun: I guess my idea of fun is pretty tame! I enjoyed arranging these images for Mosaic Monday.  The pictures are from my trail cam. Can you guess what they are?

They show what happened when I placed the trail camera within reach of tall decorative grasses. The fronds were not in front of the lens when I fastened the camera to a post but from time to time they blew in front of it. Since it is set to take a picture when movement is detected, it went off, even at night.


  1. Good morning, I love that mural. Very pretty rural scene. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

  2. Hope you find excellent new tenants! Looks like a cute place.

  3. You have a lovely house. Hope you'll find new tenants soon.

  4. What a pretty and peaceful mural. It's funny that the camera took pictures of the grass blowing.

  5. Very nice mural. I wonder if falling leaves would set off your camera?

  6. I like the time lapse photos and that is a lovely soft colored mural.

    My friends do not want their dog drinking from that particular fountain!

  7. This is a charming and decorative mural that blends well with its setting. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
