Is there an Autumn glow in your neighborhood?
Here I am in Southern California and it looks like Vermont ~
Clear blue California skies.
Splashes of multicolored leaves ~
November roses hanging on to the last bits of warm sunshine ~
The bees are still busy ~
Working away on the last remaining Morning Glories ~
Hungry goldfinch ~
A vacant Bluebird house ~
Hoping to lure those wintery blue birds to my back yard.
Offering them treats made just for them ~
So many birds flying all about.
She waits by the window...birdwatching ~
to catch another glimpse of that shedding lizard ~
After awhile, she gets bored...
and trots off to look for someone to play with ~
Puppy Playtime ~
These quiet and orange colored days find me packing away the last bits of Halloween.
See you next year, Halloween rocks ~
Stacking and arranging pumpkins all around the front porch.
My favorite place to sit on a cool November evening ~
The vegetable garden has retired.
A beautiful but sad gift.
Fallen from the sky on a warm November day ~
Delicate but unusually large.
Inside, it's time to appreciate little things.
Bright, dramatic light that makes it's way through my studio window ~
Cleaning and rearranging the china.
My Grandmas tea set...
and a tiny, child's tea set that belonged to my grandma..
when she was a girl ~
Inherited green goblets and pink depression glass ~
Working in my little studio.
Cleaning my messy desk.
Back to work ~
Autumn in the air and in the trees.
Savoring this time that never lasts quite long enough.
In the blink of an eye, it will be Christmas...
Then New Years Eve.
Then...a whole new year.
Today, it is Autumn.
In my yard.
In my home.
And in my bones.
Until Next Time:
