keeping up with Faye?

Today's photo challenge is Fall decorations and this is where for a few days I'm going to come a cropper as the saying goes. Why? I'm across the pond and we don't tend to do much decoration at this time of year.
So apologies all round, but I'm going off on a tangent then at least I'm trying to keep up.
Mrs Blackbird had her nest inside the interwoven stems of our climbing roses. The roses have lost their leaves and so the nest is revealed. OH trained the roses horizontally along the workshop. From there other branches headed skywards so the whole area was full of blooms throughout the summer.

Enjoy being AWOL, Joan. Thought I would have to be myself last night when my blogger account disappeared and I couldn't sign in. All fixed last last night. Re your photo--I always have robins' nests in the viburnum in front of my house--love watching the babes grow.

See you later.

I'll bet that wall of roses is just beautiful...

Yes, Sara and they are scented so June evenings are bliss when it;s dry weather.

I'm a bird watcher ... would have loved to seen that bird earlier this spring. (:

I have photos early this summer of a western screech owl that nested in a box I put in birch tree out front. She had one fledgling.

Oh... missing my roses. Ours were killed by a very unusual late frost. Winter was mild. But waited to kick it's way out when the sap was running and things were starting to green.

Fall decorations don't have to be created by human hands... that's for sure
