 Scary-oke at Cheekwood.
 Wild Cat Bill at Cheekwood.
 Kitty Justice with Miss Kitty at Cheekwood.
Scary pumpkin reflections from the hill. 
The Kitty Justice is to have a Scary, Tasty and Fun Halloween.

This is one of the most unusual houses in Nashville. I have always heard it was called "A Small World". After I had taken the photo, I walked back to my car which I had parked in J Percy Warner Park and an older gentleman was loading up his golf clubs and changing his shoes. He said he notice I was taking the photo of the house and asked if I knew anything about it. I told him "I did not except, that my son loved the house design." He told me the cone section was the owners office and the top of the cone was glass where he could look at the stars at night and meditate. He also informed me that the identical sides were decorated differently. One side of the house the man decorated and the other side the lady decorated. 
The Kitty Justice would be fun if this house is ever on a home tour to go inside and see how each side of the house is decorated.

These are Sun rises that Prince took back in September as I was making breakfast. The Kitty Justice is he takes good photos.

 The back porch looks naked without all the house plants sitting and hanging. I am just happy I do not have one hundred and fifty like I did in the years past. Prince was checking to see if any animals had come to the corn feeder. 
It has been TOO HOT for Prince and Puppy to cut up that big oak tree that fell this spring that took out our electricity. Saturday they tackled the tree and got about half of the upper part done. The kitty justice is it was a HUGE TREE.

We are still getting tomatoes. Prince gathered a good dozen last Thursday evening. With the weather gonna be in the high seventies and maybe eighties, we will put off gathering all the green ones in hopes they will continue to ripen. 
The Kitty Justice is I think frying a green tomato is a waste of a good ripen tomato that you could slice for a BLT.

This is one of many of the Scarecrows throughout the gardens. It was named First Faces of the First Westerns.  I took lots of photos but most were taken vertically. I rotated them in my file and reduced the size but blogger loads them sideways. 
Kitty Justice is at a lost as to how I can load these photos. As you can tell I loaded two vertical photos on Monday and blogger took them the way they are on my files. Why it will not let me show the vertical Scarecrows I have no idea.

Views from the back porch taken one week apart. There is not as much color change as in the maple tree out back of the neighbor's house. Jackson Hill always starts changing colors from the bottom of the hill to the top. The Kitty Justice is I will have to take more photos to show the changing in the leaves. 

Monday, October 24, 2011

Note how much more color is on the tree in only a weeks time. 
The Kitty Justice is I can see the daily change out my bedroom window.

My question today is why do flowers become their prettiest right before the frost? 
The kitty justice is it is their Last Hoorah.

Some mornings the sky is just to perfect not to take a photo. That happen a few mornings ago and we had such heavy fog in the valley you could not see Bellevue. 
The kitty justice is sometimes the Angels drop their dusting powder from the sky.

 This is one of the five trails you can take from the Center. 
 This was built to give you a better look at Davies Island, shown below. This Island is the southeast view. 

As you can tell on the ground you cannot see the Island as well. From the southwest view is the Caney Fork River passing under Hurricane Bridge. However, with the leaves on the trees, it was barely visible. 
The kitty justice is we will have to go back when the leaves have fallen to get a better view.

 All along the sidewalk were metal and glass objects. I found this glass worm beautiful and wished for only this type of worm to be in my garden. 
The last shop had this huge glass disk hanging from the front. Now this would be worthy of the word "COOL."
The kitty justice is how do they keep the weather especially winter from destroying these items?

 A airplane made from old equipment. I might look to see if I have those parts around home. 
Neither Prince nor I could figure out this one. Do any of you have an idea what this might represent?
The kitty justice is sometimes things even stump this artistic mind.

 I love the leaves and flowers on this piece and would like two to make a entrance gate on the hill. Don't you think that would be cool?
Turning old pieces of farm equipment into a useful bench is a nice touch. See the big glass candy kiss in the background. 
The kitty justice is I would like either of these to put on the hill.

 First garden artwork was these concrete trio. I could not find a name plaque on any of them. 
There were at least three Totem poles that were over ten feet high. These faces were more my level. 
The kitty justice is that I am forced to put only 2 photos on each blog because, Google told me when I tried to change my header that I had used all my space for photos. SO I expect any time to not be able to continue to post without purchasing space.

 When you step back out of the ACC, and turn to your right, you will walk right into  a willow tree. 
Not unless you jump off the landing. However, you feel up and personal with this big tree. 
The kitty justice is to go down on the ground and climb up the tree and when someone came to the edge of the platform, to spread the tree and say "hi."

The kitty justice is this is the photo I wanted to upload when I did the dolls twice yesterday. 
BTW This would look great in my teapot collection. Think Santa will get the hint. LOL

 To the left of the fireplace is a small hallway to Gallery One. I could have spent a day or two just looking around. Only had one hour before it closed. 
 So I will have to go back but at this point I began snapping photos. When I entered the door this was the view to the right. The photo below is a close up of the table and you can see into Gallery Two. 

 This was on the other side of the display where the table is located and this display was up against the wall. I think this table maker had a wrap sense of humor. I did like the details on the fish. The photo below was taken when I turned around and stood in the same spot. 

 I really love these lamps but they would not go with my decor. 
 The lamps are out of the photo on the right and this is the display from that angle. 
 Beautiful Autumn  dishes. Soon we will have lots of oak leaves on the ground at the hill. 
 There was something for every one and yes all of it is for sale. 
 OOPS. I did not mean to download this photo twice. I would say the craftsman is an unusual doll maker. 

If you will look back at the first photo and see that this handsome rocker was the first thing on display on the left when you entered Gallery One. His smaller counter parts were hidden behind the lamp display. The kitty justice is this should make you want to come and browse. 
BTW Click and enlarge the photos.

 Gallery Two had artwork by April Flanders. "Outbreak Populations" was printmaking and installation. The photo below is a close up. This wall was on your left as you enter Gallery Two. 

 At the end of the room was a wall and it was called "Fast Growing" also by April Flanders . It was a cut and stained paper and graphite. When you entered the open doorway on the left, you encounter a work by Jay Song called "Spectator" which is a metal/mixed media and traditional Korean Dak paper and steel wire. The following are photos and the last two are close ups. 

The kitty justice is we have barely got started as we still have Gallery One and the Sculptures on the grounds.
