Sunny and crisp

It is one of those fall days where the trees are turning and the sun is shining making everything seem glorious. I decided to pull out the Nikon D40 because it is so much easier to do a blog post with, the pictures are all ready to go.

We planted a tree last year that will look like this when it is bigger. I think it is called autumn flame. For the time being though I will enjoy the neighbors.
The geese and ducks have been flying in and flying out. It has been a week since the soy beans were harvested and they have been serious about cleaning up the field for anything that was left behind.
I love these tiny aster blooms. This plant never does get very full because it is beside the cat mint that grows very large. I should move the aster but only if I get around to it.
These mums are so pretty and there were shiny droplets of water on them but it really didn’t come through on the picture.
Ornamental grass in our landscaping. It seems to bloom late and I don’t know if it is supposed to be that way or the dryer vent heat slows it down in the summer. I love the wispy wheat looking spires that wave in the breeze.
I really like the little “pumpkin pie” pumpkins…so cute!
The front bed was just pretty with the sun shining on it. It has the fall colors on it now and some plants are just looking quite puny. Crispy, breezy and sunny days just make me happy!
Making stationary for holiday shows. I always purchase watercolor notecards from Dick Blick, my favorite place to purchase supplies. It is such nice paper that accepts archival ink with my hand carved stamps.
Other cards I have made with my carved stamps, different wreaths. My stamps are very interactive and I also add dots of enamels accents from Wendy Vecchi. They dry so quickly and the drawn lines are made with zig millennium pens. They are waterproof, archival, fade proof.
