Random Five, Late August

Willy Nilly Friday

1. I was impressed by this fancy lily in Middletown.

2. I don't know what sign used to be in this frame but it seemed like an intriguing subject for Skywatch Friday.

4. Yesterday I wrote about the 100th birthday of the National Parks Service. Virginia is celebrating 80 years of having state parks. This sign is at Shenandoah River State Park, which, by the way, is a beautiful place!

4. Frank's been working on a page for our community property owners association. The main idea is to have a web presence with contact information. He put one of my pictures on it. 
5. We really like our new car! Frank drove a hard bargain at the dealership in Harrisonburg and got a good price. 


  1. I like that lily too!
    Glad you like your new car, a friend of mine has a Nissan and it's very reliable.

    Enjoy your weekend, here in the UK it's a three day 'bank holiday' weekend

    All the best Jan

  2. Gorgeous lily! My cousin is a Park Service Ranger at the Andrew Johnson house in Johnson City, TN and she has been posting some things about the anniversary on facebook. If you ever get over there it's worth the trip. Have an awesome week!

  3. A very enjoyable five Linda, the lily is very pretty, different.

  4. That lily is gorgeous! Congrats on the new car.

  5. Hope you enjoy many happy hours behind the wheel of your new car exploring near and far!
    Very clever skywatch photo!

  6. I like your lake photo and that lily is really pretty.

  7. Can I borrow Frank the next time I need a car - I'm rubbish at bargaining!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
