October's Blog Header

October 2014 Blog Header

These are all designs I stitched in October and November of 2013.


It's Wednesday and we should walk. 
 I continue to admire the changes in light and moisture now that it is fall. 

The early morning sunlight strikes the tall second-growth while leaving the younger trees in shade. 

Many mornings now foggy.

Wisps of low clouds drift by.

Nothing though tops the pretty droplets of moisture that adhere to the needles of the trees.

The thirsty ground has already responded to the recent rains.
Look at all the tiny plants that have germinated in the past week!

Not much change in this Big Leaf Maple during the past week.  I do think it has a bit more yellow.

A short walk this week - we'll blame the cooler wet weather!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the new header! I need to find some owls to stitch. Thanks for the walk. I agree, the droplets on the pine needles is so pretty.

Who knew there were so many owl designs--wow!! They all look great grouped together, Beth.

We've been having a lot of foggy mornings, too--very odd for this area...

Happy October to you!

Great header, as always. These are a great batch of owls. Per usual, I'm having a hard time not rushing off to put a handful of designs on my wish list. GAH!
