~ September's Palette ~

All around me are

the colors of September...

changes are occuring, some not yet clearly evident ~
but simply subtle.


The days are still warm and call for tee shirts & shorts
but the nights are beginning to get cooler, causing me to don a sweater perhaps...

this time of year I love to gather my palette to include
what Mother Nature is wearing:


beautiful wools in every color of the rainbow ~


I purchased this collection of wools from
www.theoldtatteredflag.com
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

...a view up and into one of my Black Walnut Trees ~
heavily laden with nuts once again this year...
I love to look up into the trees...the yellow-ing leaves look like lace against the sky.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Needlefelting is another favorite hobby of mine,
here are a few little wool-balls that will become acorns ~
...aren't the colors delicious?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Atiny little Bumbler Bee working diligently
...to harvest the last of the nectar from the
wild flowers in our woods....
I love to watch them flit so busily ~
and that yellow is so pretty!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and of course, my pencils ~
the ones I turn to time and again
to add little doodles and sketches in my notebooks ~


here are my favorite colors right now:

bittersweet
ochre
soot
dirt
moss
lichen
brick
&
parchment

Today I will be taking a ME day.
I will create to my heart's content...not worrying about deadlines, bills or chores...
I will find myself walking through our woods searching for inspiration
to fill my mind with wonderful things-to-come and relax in the knowing that
everything is a blessing....


Hoping you all have a
*SPARKLING* day!!!!

Blessings from the Farm,
Lori
