View

I've been so captivated by the view outside my home office window the past couple days.  The brilliant sunlit leaves light up the room with a warm yellow-orangish glow.

The trees are gorgeous this year!  I love watching how the light moves through the leaves as the day wears on and the sun drops ever lower and then fades away.


at ground level here.  On the left you can see a bit of deck and under that the pink hydrangea (that I tried to change to blue with no success so far).


looking out the window again.  In the lower middle of this photo you can see the beginning of a path into the woods.  Along the bottom on the right is the deck railing with tomato plants reaching for the last little bit of sunlight.  (Yes, still getting a few small tomatoes!  I won't take out the plants till the very last second.)

 
Birds seem to fill the air at this time of year.


The clouds provide an everchanging panoply of pageantry as well.

  5. That scene is something we in this country is not privileged to have. We only have 2 seasons, the dry and the wet. And my foreign travels, i wonder why, are always timed for spring, so I haven't walked barefoot on fallen leaves yet. That is still in my dream!

  7. Gorgeous colours you have in your part of the world. Out here we are pretty much surrounded by green and gold and I miss the red. I don't blame you for hanging onto those tomato plants until the very last second - too good to give up!

  8. For me, the melancholy that comes with autumn can be offset with the blue of that sky. It is of an intensity found at no other time. (an office with a view can be very distracting.)

  11. re what to make with clothing...my friend Joyce made a quilt from the golf towels her Dad used. also a quilt made from his ties. I have made tshirt quilts from our children's high school and college tees. another friend had a 3-d teddy bear made from some wool that was a coat of her mother's. maybe the textile itself speaks to you in terms of what to make. whatever you do, be sure to post pix!
    thanks for stopping by.

  13. Beautiful autumn pictures although it's not my favorite season it's the beginning of dark days and winter time. If I was a bear I would go to sleep in a cavern by now !

  20. Be still my heart.

    These views are the ones my heart still craves...years and years after I've moved to a climate that doesn't offer them.

    Thank you.

    You brought back so many memories of long ago autumns.

    And this was a loVely, loVely link to the letter "V".
