Japanese red maple against a background of golden fall hostas.
Love the deep colors, textures & natural patterns.

While I’m “stuck” inside firing the kiln, I’m trying not to think about how perfectly BEAUTIFUL it is outside! But somehow, I keep getting glimpses of the incredible Fall day. I hope to get done soon enough to get outside before it’s gone.

The waves were crashing this morning… yet not everyone was happy to see them. Apparently there was a “fatality” along the way. Bad timing. Tragic & beautiful… as the sunrise lit up the monarch and the water drops that took it down!

It’s only the First Day of Fall…
and the pumpkins have already arrived at the grocery stores. Say it isn’t so!!!

It’s officially the first day of Fall…
and I was greeted this morning with one perfect white leaf sitting on top of my gerbera daisy leaves. An “albino” harbinger of things to come!

Nature encroaching… green ivy growing over the lakefront boulders.

I love when Mother Nature is so confident that these little plants will find a home wherever they can. Sitting in any little crack in the cement… and thriving on the east end apron of Chicago’s Navy Pier.
