I love it, almost as much as I do sewing and quilt making, but not quite.
Here in the desert, we are having a most delicious fall season.
I am sure that the frost is aching to make an appearance,
and when it hits, everything that is green turns black.
Eventually, everything becomes a drab gray and stays that way until spring.
Unless, of course, it is covered with clean, white snow! AWESOME!
I don't mind the gray as long as I can stay inside and sew, and sew, and sew.
I try to get many projects completed during January and February.
By the time March rolls around "Cabin Fever" is working overtime on me
and I know that Spring is on its way again.
Meanwhile, I am trying to savor every little flower that is still in bloom.
They are my friends and I miss them through the long winter months.
I can see why Fabric designers use flowers for inspiration. The colors are incredible.
She yearns for the weather temperature to barley start to lower.
When the numbers reduce from the 100's to the 80's,
Mrs. Carding Mill seems to have a burst of energy
and just keeps on blooming.
She seems to pick up the pace
and her numerous petals glow even longer when the light snuggles around them.
It blooms as long as it can until the villain, Mr. Frost, comes along and colors her world gray.
I admire the way the petals arrange themselves.
Each bud opens and forms this charming rosette shape.
A few years ago when I found the David Austin Roses website,
I knew then, that I was in "BIG" trouble.
I have been collecting them ever since.
You should visit David. You could get addicted too!
Time to go for now!
I hope you enjoyed my photography. I have been practicing.
I hope that you all have "Happy Thoughts" until next time.
PS - It looks like spring, but it's not...
