Sunday in the park

We ditched the "movie night" plan last night and went to the park to catch that special October evening light instead and see how the desert plants are changing. It is like a second spring time for them, many are blooming. It is still feels like Autumn, the shadows and the colors are so October!

Sunday in the park

Went biking


There is the best season starting for us - after 5 months of scorching heat we will enjoy mild desert fall and winter.


I looked through my recent photographs and art and found that I have more orange color in them then before. It is weird how the season effects my inspiration, even here in Nevada we are not even near the trees changing color from green to yellow and red, but my inner biological calendar telling me that it is time for that.
I wish there were more of those colors around, may be that is why I buy orange fabrics and paint fall inspired images. Here are some little watercolors I have done last two weeks and my "orange" quilt is coming along, too. 
I love everything orange these days!

I received these cards from my friends that we exchange hand made cards with...
Beautiful red rooster from Galina! And post cards from Tallinn - beautiful Estonian town.
Thank you, girls!
