I have long considered the creative impulse to be a visit-a thing of grace perhaps. Not commanded, owned, so much as awaited, prepared for. A thing, also, of mystery.

calling all monarch butterflies


we have a plentiful crop of milkweed this year
the plants are doing their best to spread


I hope to see more butterflies next summer
this year, only three

autumn light


the golden glow of autumn
on 
autumn vegetables


a note-
I bought the bowl at a mill store a few years ago.
This is what it looks like after a lot of sanding and wax.
It was a fun project!

fog and foliage


The good news is we finally have some color.
The bad news is that we have fog. 
Actually though,
it is quite pretty.
This shot was taken on my afternoon walk.
The maple with the red leaves is almost bare.
What an odd fall we are having!

celebrating autumn


Don't you just love made things?
My husband and I just bought this wreath
for our front door. 
Not only is it lovely and all natural,
it smells great.
