Sunday Ride In The Car, Car

Once upon a time American troubadour Woody Guthrie wrote and sang a ditty sometimes called The Car Song:

“Take me riding in the car, car; /
“Take me riding in the car, car; /
“Take you riding in the car, car; /
“I'll take you riding in my car.”

And so it is that on an occasional autumn Sunday Wife Sharon and I pile in the family van and tour around the nearby countryside. Yesterday was one.

Of course we always have a camera with us, just in case … .

This time the “just in case” was a delightful cluster of milkweed plants, whose bursting pods glowed brightly in the late afternoon sun. They were irresistible.

We found some of the most interesting foliage colors of the day in our own front yard, not long before sunset. Our maples gave us a nice homecoming.
