Sure, we might have a dangerous ice & sleet storm headed our way tonight with big weather advisories going on… but the second stalk on my amaryllis is in full bloom so at least it seems like Spring “might” be on its way at home?!

As the snow continued to fall all day today…
it’s somewhat “encouraging” to know that some people are already planning Summer Camps for their kids!!!

I know I for one can’t wait to get back to Summer… and  SUMMER CAMP at Lillstreet!!!

Sure, the fog & sunrise was beautiful this morning… but the frosted leaves were pretty amazing too! I love how the frost accentuated all of the veins & stems of the leaves… and the muted medley of colors in the frozen fall leaves.

Excited to see that some of the Fall leaves have survived the recent rains & wind…
not so sure they’re gonna make it through tonight’s predicted snowfall???

Sure, I may be firing the soda kiln all day today… but that doesn’t mean
I can’t step outside for a breath of fresh air & nature’s glory.

Blue skies. Yellow leaves.
And the inevitable bare branches not too far behind.

It’s November First and were surrounded by beautiful Fall colors.
A great way to kick-off a new month.

With a lack of color in the morning sunrise, I was pleased to find all of the color instead along the bike trail. The Fall foliage is just starting to pop in vibrant colors. These cool evenings are sure to bring this along quickly in the next week or so.
