Mums from a Jersey farm. No more fresh corn or tomatoes. Now, they are selling fall flowers.

I'd say it was one of these rascals. @Uncle Duke to confirm?

@Walks_At_Night  I wasn't able to identify the thing as it circled around, but when it left, I was able to track it all the way to Ault Field on the Whidbey Island Naval Base in Washington State.  Then I went and searched for the type of aircraft being utilized there and saw that it was a P-8A Poseidon.  Not sure what it was doing in my neck of the woods, touch and go landings at the local airport, or perhaps I was under surveillance.  (If so, all they got was me way down there taking pictures of them as they flew by overhead.)  I'm sure that @Uncle Duke would have ID'd the thing.  Perhaps he would know what the two objects are in back of the aircraft?  They almost look like something that was let out the back, like radar instruments perhaps?

The flared wingtips got me! I am sure now that you are correct and that it is a P8.  Navy plane used in an anti-submarine role and packed with all kinds of gear for that purpose. If I remember correctly, there was some consternation that they did not have magnetic anomaly detectors which is a way other than sound to track submarines.

That military jet was flying over the garden again.

I wonder if the pilots knew they were being trailed by two small objects?

Wow!

If I put off mowing the lawn long enough, these Krigias will appear.  They are members of the dandelion family, in fact they are often called dwarf dandelions.

Dwarf Dandelion Wine by Dwarf Ray Bradbury

The objects behind the plane do look like retractable antennas/instruments/sensors.  But if they were ahead of the plane, I would  guess "foo fighters".  Heh heh

definitely recommend dicloxacillin for brown recluse

I'll drink to some dwarf dandelion wine!  Haha, like @FISH said, I was under surveillance, and have been off and on since 1953.

Guess I won't be drinking to that, @FISH.  Harry and Meghan could easily afford the stuff, though.
