🍁🍁🍁 We are having a wonderful, rainy, windy storm here and I'm loving it. It's helping dampen the fires that still burn, cleansing the air and behaving like a real Autumn. I just stepped out on the deck and took a few photos such as this one with the windmill spinning like crazy but you can't see that.. lol.
🍁 You also cannot tell from the photo but the rain is falling and the trees and bushes are waving about in the wind.
🍁 When the blue heron murdered and ate our two Comet pond goldfish I thought.. hmm.. what could we do to protect them? And I thought about the old window screens that were in the windows when we had new ones installed. I told Dayle my idea and he went out to the barn and found a stack of them.. this is our solution for the time being. The evil blue heron has been spotted several times by the pond trying to kill and eat our beloved koi. Dayle is also thinking of a better solution.
🍁 I tried to get a photo of the Hawthorn trees on the top of the hill of the pasture behind our house - it's covered with red berries right now. I could get a better photo up closer but this is what I could get with the zoom on my big Lumix.
🍁 I would like a big bouquet of these on my Autumn table.
I was going through my big thick family photo album and got a kick out of this photo of me when I was a toddler. Look at the little rollers in my hair, mom loved fiddling with our hair. I wish I knew the name of this dog!
I also came across this photo of the 1st big barn that Dayle designed and built at our other house on 365th in Corbett before we moved here. Isn't it pretty? My pottery studio was up in the loft by the 2 tall windows he got from a dismantled church.
I also found the one and only photo of me throwing pottery in my studio. See the little round pot in the top right of the photo? That's my little 3 legged pot I showed you recently before the final firing.
I put out my little hand-made scarecrow I made years ago. I decided it needed a "skeleton" so I took some aluminum foil and twisted it into "bones" for the head, spine, body, arms and legs. Then (my sister made one at the same time) we sewed the clothes and added patches on and ripped a scarf and used a circle of red flannel for the hat, muslin for the head, hands and feet, stuffed it all and tied it all on with raffia "hay". :-)
He's my buddy.
Dayle moved back into the house yesterday and brought me in a rose. Sweet! Caleb helped him carry everything back in. It was nice to have him back home.
And today he walked the dog and brought a fresh bouquet of Dahlias for me! This is one side of them...
And the other side. The pellet stove is burning and it's cozy in here.
🍁 Well.. that's it for now.. I hope you are enjoyed the season wherever you are on this spinning blue orb we share! How about a weather report and location from those very special readers who leave comments? :-) 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 ((hugs)), Teresa :-) 🍁
