November Rolls In With A Kaleidoscope of Color ~

Hello November! 
You are always welcome.

Warm days. 
A kaleidoscope of color ~ 

 Butterfly visits ~ 

A jumble of summer's leftovers ~

Pinks, yellows and purples ~ 

and cool whites....

reaching upward
soaking up the autumn sun ~ 

Unexpected gifts from the birds....

Seeds dropped from a feeder become golden sunflowers ~ 

Faces raised to the sky ~ 

November is the time to bring color indoors ~ 

Measuring and planning ~  

A facelift for the dining room chairs ~

A garden of color for my studio chair too ~

Sleepy puppy gathering up the glow of November's warmth.
Drunk from the sun, tongue sticking out ~  

Days so warm that you confuse them with summer.
Nights cool enough to offer dew in the early morning hours ~ 

Time spent imagining....

Daydreaming of future gardens.
Future paintings.
The future in general.

Grabbing tight to the short autumn days.
Breathing in the gleam and glow of November.

Until Next Time:
Gerushia's New World

Sooo beautiful, look at your garden!! Is that coreopsis in abundance? Mine is long gone. I should prune it and it would last all summer. I LOVe your Mexican sunflowers, I have two HUGE ones that I didn't plant, must have self seeded from last year. The garden is the most blissful place this time of year for certain. Furrrrry love xoxo

Thank you Rebecca! I would be lost without my garden.

You spotted the Mexican sunflower! I have never had one until I planted the American Meadow Summer Splash mix. Only one came up, but it's huge. I love it!

All the other orange and yellow flowers you see are sulphur cosmos. They are from the Summer Splash mix too.

Lovely garden! I'm so envious. Garden season is definitely over in Michigan. Your prints are so fun and fabulous. I may check out the photo a day. It sounds like great fun.
