Grasses on a Stormy Day


Layers of colours and textures


 A wave of rusty grasses


A pair of rusty pups who turned five on Halloween


There is something beautiful about straw coloured grasses,
red autumn leaves, 
purple mountains and dark grey clouds.

I hope all in Sandy`s path are safe
For us up here we are grateful
to be only on the edge of it.

  3. Lovely, lovely. I have tons of pics from our trip -- just have to go through them and get some of them onto my blog. Grasses figured prominently in some of them.

    1. I think they are protected a bit in that location from the high dike that runs between them and the wind!

  8. Hi Penny

    I saw your piece in the World of Threads show. It looked great.

    The festival of exhibitions is really very stimulating.
