This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

I could not waste these beautiful colours, I just had to post them somewhere so there ya go. Those brilliant colours in the sunshine and a bright blue sky. How wonderful is that?

These are not eating apples, at least I have never tried them. I wish that the deer would come and get them although I suspect the rabbits and coons etc do have a snack or two.

The other ones are certainly crab apples. This tree is double. It has two sides to it.Meanwhile I just can't stop looking at the brilliant colours.

They say it might snow tomorrow night, so this may be all for this year so I just had to get this all down here.

I had better go for now. I want to get to bed, still not over the flu yet, well the tiredness anyway. Getting there though, tomorrow will be better. I have to find more things for us to do..........meanwhile tomorrow it must be about the house. I have not done much for well over a week except the basics. Time to whip up some energy and get down to it.


  1. Janice so sorry to hear you've been sick.. Hope it passes soon, don't push it..
    Your post with all this color makes me want to put brush to palette. Just beautiful.
    Thanks for all your beautiful thoughts and words on a subject close to both of us.

  2. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos! It is nice to see all the color and a few last blooms. They say we could even see some mixed snow/rain Saturday evening!
    Glad you are somewhat better--it is always hardest to get over the lingering tiredness I find. Have a nice weekend!

  3. Beautiful colors -- those red leaves on blue sky are stunning.

  4. Your garden is still pretty. I wish the weeds in my garden would go to sleep!
