OK, can't start without a couple of more pics of my great-great grand. I find it extremely difficult not living closer to this bundle of joy. I want to capture her as she grows and changes but being almost 2 hours (and that is fast driving) away, I will have to restrain myself to occasional visits. I won't even be around for Thanksgiving (going to California to visit my son and daughter-in-law). Rather excited considering I haven't seen them since last Fall. They have bought a new house and have a new dog which adds to the excitement.
Her hands can't be constrained....must be that artist in her.
Well, nothing is going to compare to that sweet bundle, but I did go to Trader Joe's this week and came home with pumpkins. I love this green one. Remember the days when pumpkins were just orange? Now we have orange, light and dark, almost red, green, white, variegated reds & oranges and probably more and then there are the gourds that come in every size, shape and color. Maybe some of those odd color pumpkins are really gourds and then again aren't all pumpkins part of the gourd family. Who knows, I am certainly not a pumpkin connoisseur. I just enjoy them and take their picture.
I also came home with a bundle of beautiful flowers that were picture worthy.
The crab apples are in abundance this year as well as the acorns. Had to have been all that moisture (snow) from last winter, but then I read where the apple crops around here have been decimated by that same winter. Some crops are down 60% which does not bode well for apple pickin' in these parts.
And finally a shot from my trip to Ohio with a little added word art...
