Scenes From The Cottage
A bright spot on this rainy November day.
Did I tell you my friend Amy visited me on Tuesday? They are living back in Texas but we in Baltimore visiting her husband who is almost done with his fourth year of residency at Johns Hopkins. Anyway - we were having such a good time, that I didn't take any photos. None, zip, nada. She took photos but I think they were mostly of the beautiful trees. She says they just have brown now at at home. Love you Amy. Thanks for the visit and for bringing the kids too! Sarah and Kyle had so much fun.
I mowed yesterday, and reduced the leaves to a much smaller size. This photo was taken from my bedroom window of one of the Red Sunset Maples in the front yard. The way the leaves are falling these trees will be bare by next week. It's always so sad when this beautiful time of year ends.
While I was already hanging out the window I decided to take a photo of my neighbors pretty tree.
At the back of the house, from the deck. The trees along the creek are still pretty.
The garden gave me a beautiful gift yesterday. While mowing I spotted this big bunch of Italian parsley! It had become hidden by the tomatoes this summer and I assumed that it was gone. This mild weather we've had must have brought it back! I have it hanging to dry in the kitchen!
Beauty in spite of imperfection. This is one of the trees along the creek.
In my bedroom this morning. My last birthday gift. A beautiful Indian cotton weave.
