The beautiful part of Autumn is almost over. The crisp colourful beauty of the falling leaves replaced by colourless shivers as the world begins its slumber.
There is nothing I love more than the scent of warm cinnamon & nutmeg rising from the oven... except for collecting leaves!
I find leaves inspiring... the colours & markings on each one is unique. They inspire me to sew & to paint. By the time the last leaf falls, every window ledge and table in my home is adorned with nature's treasures.
Which one shall I paint today?
I picked our first persimmon this week. It was crunchy & sweet. Percy has been entertained by chickadees taking baths and squirrel acrobats walking sunflower tight ropes. Our cat's full name is actually Percy Persimmon named after the orange fruit... although in hindsight we should have named him Percy Pumpkin because he weighs twenty pounds!
It's time to bake some more pumpkin pie! Last month's was super delicious. I make it with coconut milk and it's truly luscious. Honestly, I think that pumpkin pie should be enjoyed all year round!
