faded ferns

I am the first to admit I am a lazy gardener. I know all about cleaning up the garden at the end of the season – clipping, trimming, raking, and such. But I never do. And sometimes my reward is treasures like this. This lovely fern spent autumn fading to a soft white. How striking against the browns of windblown oak leaves! The lacy little leaves are so lovely and defined.

I still love my blog...

Apologies to my dear readers who have been left wondering about me for the past few months. I have managed to make time to make art on a few occasions and I look forward to sharing those. Mostly I have been forced to make time to rest. I have been feeling a bit better these days and hope to get back into the swing of blog writing once again.

This beautiful leaf caught my eye on a dark night as I walked between the building and the car. I am lucky to have a beautifully landscaped workplace that offers treasures like these, even in unassuming places like parking lots. Autumn is truly my favorite season and I am always a bit sad to see it go.
