    Beautiful pictures, Evelyn. It has been fun to be a part of this and see other people’s colors all this year!

    Wow lovely colors. The picture of the fishing derby is lovely with the reflection in the water!

    I love all your images, but the cranesbill leaves are pretty spectacular. That mirror image is no slouch.

    As always, I love your photos! The light and color in the marigold photo are amazing.

    I see you’ve had frost. We haven’t yet, at least not in our yard.

    Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful colors this month and all year long!! You really helped make the project fun for me!

      Thanks all – and especially Sue for posting the challenge! I really enjoyed taking photos and am now wishing I had a better camera!

    great images.
    funny that you say the weaving looks silvery. the weft is tan and the warp slate gray.
    thanks for visiting

    Have a great week,

    Wow! What beautiful pictures – look at that sky – was it a harbinger of “Red sky at morning, sailor take warning”?

    I also particularly liked the yellow leaf rimmed with frost – very pretty – and certainly brings a shiver to ones bones.

    I too have enjoyed getting to know all the people who have been in on this project. T.

    Evelyn, your photography is amazing! Love the leaf edged in frost, and the French marigolds. Looking forward to what you will do with that dyebath!
