Several limbs of the beautiful old Kwanzan cherry had to be removed. The backyard is very different now.  The light is harsher and when I go outdoors I feel more exposed.


At least the hickory tree out front is still full. A pair of downy woodpeckers visited yesterday. I don't know who made this giant nest = maybe squirrels?


Some of the day's work. Handspun wool and indigo.

Little changes

Every instantt here are a thousand tiny changes in the garden, the sky and the world.


It's a gift to be able to notice a few of them.  These morning glory vines have climbed up to the back porch window. I love to see these first, even before I step outside.


Brugmansia flower buds  look a bit like baby bananas


Very brief rainbow.
