End of a beautiful year

Two fat friends sharing an old chair


 

Christmas Eve - Eve

 


 Such a busy time indoors and still so lovely outdoors!

This is one of my favorite days of the year.


 


 Milkweed stem


 


 

December


 Not long ago


 


 The final pear. I wonder why this one hasnt fallen yet.


November 26


 Chinese lantern


 


The plants had to come in early this year. They don't love being indoors, but at least they're alive.


 


Mikweed pods have burst open.


A little indigo

 


 

 

November

Snow began to fall on Halloween morning. 


The leaves have started falling , creating a lovely carpet under the serviceberry. (Never mind the bits of trash....:)


In just one day the world seems to change!


 

October

 


The sweet Service-berry is beginning to glow. In every season it is a beauty.


 


I desided to take a little break from dyeing silk and linen. The cooler days made me turn to wool for spinning and crocheting. It's hard to decide what to make - scarves, hats, or should I dye enough to crochet a blanket....? I've said it for years, but one of these days, I'm going to try felting.


 


This rose reminds me of the brick-red madder shade.


 

September morning glories


These morning glories began blooming in earnest a few weeks ago. They always take a long time to get started, but are truly worth the wait! 


Late September

 


Lakr Michigan is only about 20 minutes away from home, but for some strange reason, I hadn't visited it in years.


The air was baking hot, and the water was deliciously cool.



It helps to change the routine once in a while.



 Back to work, inspired by the lake.


August 9

The picture is a liitle blurry, but look at the right side of the flower - it's a baby praying-mantis!

I didn't even see him until I put this picture on the computer....:)


Granny's Birthday


 This is my Grandmother's birthday. She shared her love of life, color, art, beauty and growth with all of us.


 


 Granny would be 115 years old today!
