Not that it’s autumn yet but it’s heading that way. The main season where I live is winter. There’s a brief nod towards spring, a happy dash with summer then somewhere between melting hot and deep freeze is the time of year when you pick your garden veggies and kick leaf piles. Which is what the canes are about this last few weeks of summer. Autumn leaves, harvest vegetables.
Plus, they make cute beads.
Not that I didn’t take advantage of the last days of full time help to get more dragon ornaments worked on. My studio help heads back to school in a few days so I’ll be back to doing most of my own production work again. She promises me she’ll keep on helping but I admit I’ll be sad to lose the all day company.
I guess the drifts of leaves everywhere mean it’s the real deal, autumn is here. That and the shrub going bald.
Lisa from Polkadot had this great idea and I figured I’d join in. When I was little I thought it was called ‘Fall’ because the leaves fell.
It’s still pretty much how I feel about it.
In Calgary, the leaves often fall from the trees in August because the climate is arid – the trees lose their leaves in the summer because of the drought. This year the spring was wet but mild and the summer was wet enough. It hasn’t even really gotten chill and while the nights are hovering at freezing the days are lovely, summer like still. However, the leaves have started to fall and so it’s definitely time to welcome Fall.
My veggies are long picked and eaten because the plants have “We’re cold.” damage by the end of August here but I have kind of fall toned beads! Those count right?
