I got out of the habit of working on Cottage Garden Sampling's floral series while I was travelling this summer. I decided that Sundays would become "Series Sundays" and if on no other day of the week, I'd at least devote some time on Sundays to working on this series. I stitched the vine on the bottom and the right side of "April's Daisy". So I'm back on track again.
"Red in the morning, sailors' warning"
This was our lovely sunrise Friday morning before storm after storm after storm moved in. I spent Saturday night in a monsoonal deluge watching the University of Oregon football game!
Padma showed more sense and spent the weekend warm and dry.
Most of the birds hunkered down during the storm.
I was pleased to see a nuthatch at the feeders. They prefer mature forest as habitat and so are infrequent visitors at the feeders.
The winter birds are starting to show up again...
...including this White-crowned Sparrow.
There are lots of Song Sparrows no matter the time of year.
The Oregon Juncos are more plentiful in the fall and winter.
