Some days are just too nice to be inside

One of the bonuses for living in the South is the proliferation of days - especially in Fall and spring (two long seasons here, miraculously) that are just too nice to be inside. So I've been outside all weekend enjoying the fall colour from our Acers (aka Japanese maples); we've planted a lot of them over the years. The drought has taken some, the deer nibble the edges and some bug or other eats the leaves too...but their colour and form are so spectacular that it's worthwhile to have a crop of babies coming along ready to plant in the "holes".
She Almighty has definitely come up with some great compositions and colour schemes this Fall.

It's inspiring, but also daunting!

And now, it's back to the design wall and t he sewing machine!! Ready to enjoy another wonderful day tomorrow.

I promise something more profound as soon as it gets cloudy and rainy!
but then, maybe this is profound...hmmm....
and, if you have been, thanks for reading...

Wow! Wonderful colors. Here in northern California we also have a long, lovely fall. I need to plant some of those maples!
Great inspiration...
