A Sunday afternoon

We've had a spectacular shot of fall this weekend...much cooler, crisp clean air, the stillness that breathes rest into your very bones.  I don't think we're done with summer yet, but it's sure been a treat.

After church today, the loveliness beckoned, so I grabbed my much-neglected nature journaling set and parked myself in the backyard to observe our late-summer flowers.  Several last-minute stragglers still flourished and I had to capture their colors.  I'm learning to work with watercolor pencils and need a lot more practice...but it was satisfying nevertheless to sit still and really observe the incredible artistry of our God.  Have you ever noticed that every flower He made is perfect??


  1. Have I ever told you, I love your drawings? :) You should have prints done sometime...lol. :D <3

    You are a great artist. Very pretty flowers.

  3. Beautiful! My nature journal is a bit neglected too. Shame on me!

  4. simply beautiful ...

    Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into some serious goodness.


  5. Oh, you are quite the artist! I too enjoy drawing. It's the motivation that seems to be lacking though, LOL!
    Thanks for your kind compliments on my photo at my blog.
    Blessings, Julie

  6. I am sorry that I did not include the No Poo info in my post, silly me! I have changed that. And here is a link that I found when I first decided to try this. She has a much better explanation.

    Your drawings are beautiful! I can't draw anything! I was not blessed with such lovely talents.

    Yes, summer is drawing to a close slowly but surely. I have noticed that it's starting to get darker sooner, which is an indication to me that summer is on its way out. I'm looking forward to the Autumn season.


Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate you taking time to comment and being part of the conversation.
