October 30 2018


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.

October first

The colors are intense. I've been working indoors, clearing out ancient heaps of fabric, papers and projects that will never be complete. I dash outdoors now and then to refresh my eyes and brain!


 

Seeds are getting ripe


 


 

October

There's something about the light in October. that makes the world almost too beautiful. Even on a cloudy morning there's extra richness in the colors.
