Welcome, Fall

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.

The Courtyard

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.

Year of Clay – A Slice of Spring

Unlike my neighbours to the south east, it’s been lovely here for weeks. The weather has been mild and springlike. After finishing off most of the stacks of canes for my spring stock I made mini canes up from the ends and pieces and turned those into my favourite slice beads!

So here’s what a slice of spring (canes) looks like:
