prelude to fall

The tip of a  branch on our tupelo tree (nyssa sylvatica) suddenly turned the brightest of red. It was almost unsettling amidst all the greenness with autumn still being far ahead. The shimmering colors and the speckled patterns on the leaves are seductive, especially knowing that their appearance is fleeting. This coming week I am eagerly returning to the studio. My mind is brimming with ideas and I am looking forward to attending to my idle projects as well as embarking on new ones. Longing to get back to work is a wonderful thing.


  1. I love your blog site and you have given me a re-newed love for leaves!

  2. Wow - that is a wonderful color - so inspiring - thanks!

  3. Isn't it frightening when you start seeing the trees change, even if they're premies :) I get anxious because I don't want summer to end. I do envy that feeling longing to get back to work! That's so exciting! I'm eager to see what you start cooking up in your studio :)

  4. Fall - my favorite season! Too bad it doesn't last long enough. The trees in all their glory...


I always love to hear from you! I read every word and cherish every thought, even if I am not always able to reply back. Thank you for visiting.
