Beautiful Days ...

Fall has to be one of my favorite times of the year. The beautiful clean crisp air and warm sun combine to make the days like heaven on earth. When I checked my blog today I could not believe how long it had been since my last post, so here are just a few things that have been grabbing my time and attention.

The wonderful butterflys that are visiting the last of the flowers in my garden. They literally flit all over the yard which makes watching them so much fun. They are also not always willing to 'sit' for a photo and that makes it even more fun.

I am still completely enchanted by the zinnias in my yard. I must have at least a hundred or more pictures of them as they change constantly so there is always something new to see. This is a gold zinnia and one of only 2 or 3 that made an appearance this year.

This little gold zinnia also has a kiss of pink. Just beautiful!

Our shed was just about ready to collapse so a new shed was in order. It is in a new location just to the right of the original. Today was a gorgeous day and we stained three sides of it with a redwood stain. Prepping the space and building the raised beds took alot of time this fall. I am glad this project is just about over.

This is the book I made at Squam in September. I really enjoyed that class and will add a post about it soon. The class inspired me to plan several other books and I am slowly gathering the supplies needed. I cannot wait to get going on them.

I hope you are all enjoying the fall also. Thanks for visiting.
