I took this photo in June when I visited friends at Kure Beach near Wilmington, NC. This looks more like summer to me than anything I’ve ever seen. I didn’t want to replace it but mid-September prods me to do so. [June, 2009]
Pink magnolias are among my favorite spring blooms. These were photographed by my friend Ron. [April, 2009]
As a knitter, I love wool. As a lover of wool, I love sheep. My collection reminds me of the folks who gave me such thoughtful gifts.
This is a knitting project that is also in progress. It will be a sweater set—a sleeveless under sweater and a lacy, short bolero. I’m knitting as fast as I can.
This is a knitting project that is in progress. I’m sewing the buttons on as I add buttonholes. I am helping other folks with this pattern at Sarah Jane’s Yarn Shop here in Fort Wayne.
The lack of light makes winter seem dreary. Sometimes a candle is all it takes to brighten a February day. Thanks for this photo Ron.
An ice storm has many positive aspects. One is its beauty. Another is its reminder that the contrasts in life are what make it interesting. I was sitting in the cold with the electrical service out and fearing walking and driving on the ice to get somewhere warm. Warm weather seemed so far away. Then I realized how much more I’ll appreciate daffodils once spring arrives. [December, 2008]
My friend Ron stood in the cold on Main Street to shoot this photo of the lighted Santa on the side of a bank building. The Wolf & Dessauer Department Store used this lighted display many years ago. It is reported that it was even hung unlighted during World War II. Natives of Fort Wayne associate this spectacular display with the holidays. [December, 2008]
This is autumn in rural Ohio. We’ve had a frost and the trees are almost bare. [October, 2008]
This is autumn in Indiana—right outside my front door. The colors changed and leaves have started to fall even though we have had no frost and our temperatures have been quite warm. [September, 2008]
My friend Ron took this photo in the Spring of 2008, and gave me permission to use it as a masthead on this blog. Maybe it is my imagination but blue flowers seem to be rare. [June, 2008]
