I love burnt sienna. What a gorgeous color, especially this time of year. Makes me so excited to see the trees around DC turn colors. They don't seem close yet, but that always seems to happen overnight. Suddenly, without a lot of warning.
These mums aren't quite in bloom yet, a little tribute to the "in between summer and fall" feeling I've got right now.
This picture was taken last year. This is some of my favorite yarn (red java malabrigo) and even though I'm madly in love with the color it sits, unwoven, unstitched, lonely, in my yarn basket.
Happy burnt sienna day, courtesy of elsie marley's fall color week. Tomorrow: goldenrod.
It's been way too long. I won't even make excuses for myself, although it has been an interesting month. To get me back into the groove, and to take advantage of a perfect blogging distraction for the week, I'm playing along in elsie marley'scolor week. The theme is Fall and she's using crayola crayon color names to guide us. hooray!
Today is brick red. And I give you.....
We went apple picking at Butler's Orchard on Saturday and the excitement about fall color week began when we pulled up and saw the barn housing their market. Mission accomplished.
The weather here is just peeking into fall. Days are a little cooler now and I definitely need a sweater outside in the early morning when we take Mr. Huck to the dog park. I'm anxiously awaiting fall for so many reasons and can't think of a better game to play this week. And I can't wait to look at everyone else's brick red photos today.
