Around Here Week 37

We’re into September now and leaves will be dropping from trees soon. Here’s one that got a head start, though it looks like the bugs played a role in its demise. Possibly good for a stencil or some big stitch embroidery.

Sometimes simple is the best. Morning shadows on my deck wowed me. I did use color filters on two of my photos, just for variety.

This bold spiky beauty is an ornamental onion, called Globemaster. The blue color is startling, not usual in flowers. It’s a blue that makes my retinas tingle, in a good way.

My sort of daily walks take me across the Cuyahoga River on a footbridge. Lately the river has been low as we haven’t had rain, but the curtain of green I see from the bridge never fails to cool me off. This photo seems so summery I want to break out the voile fabric and sew gauzy layers. And to think it will be September next week.

They’ve finished blooming now, but I enjoyed a bountiful display from my Stoke’s Aster plants this year. I’d like to try an abstract of this flower, surrounded by the swirl of leaves

I’m back to looking at my feet, thanks to a piece of sycamore tree bark that immediately reminded me of a Henry Moore sculpture.

Here’s what I mean.

Around Here Week 31

Last week we stopped by a local orchard and bought a peck of peaches. Yes, peaches grow in northeast Ohio. To let them ripen before we cut them up and freeze them, we set them out on our dining room table to ripen a bit more. I don’t know about you, but our dining room is used mainly for non-dining purposes, such as laundry folding.

I couldn’t resist photographing the voluptuous peaches on the blue check tablecloth. Such a fabulous, classic color combination. Wouldn’t you like a bite?
