fall colors

I need to get all the eye candy I can now
because soon, too soon it will turn gray.

I love the winter here in New England but after the leaves
fall to the ground everything takes on a gray tone.

View from my desk

"My sorrow, when she's here with me,

thinks these dark days of autumn rain

are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare,

the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane."

~ Frost, Robert

Being a mom

You want to be there for your children all the time. But you can't be. They have to do and learn for themselves. My daughter was in an auto accident this morning. She is fine, just one scratch near her eye. But looking at the car you would never guess. Hit in the driver door, but she was safe. I trust in a higher power.

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face."– Eleanor Roosevelt

Heart of Nature

It is amazing what you find when your not looking for anything. My breath was taken away when I found this. A perfect heart made of stone.

It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato. ~ Lewis Grizzard

What do you do when a tomato goes on strike?
You picket.

Queen Anne's Lace
Pink Queen Anne's Lace

Daucus carot, also called Wild Carrot. It is a common plant in dry fields, ditches, and open areas. It was introduced from Europe, and the carrots that we eat today were once cultivated from this plant.

It takes its common name from a British monarch who was adept at lace-making, and the plant's flower certainly is lace-like, resembling an old-fashioned doily.

All of her competitors were in their teens.
