I was picked to provide the photo for November.
I took this photo in my front yard years ago.
I like the feel of it.
The vegetation in the photo is a Rose of Sharon. Also in the front yard is a Red Maple that was a Mother's Day gift from the Bird Man and The Bug when Bug was two years old. I have watched both The Bug and my Red Maple grow bright and strong over the years. Once Sunshine Girl came along, she wanted her own tree. We transplanted the Rose of Sharon from elsewhere in the yard and called it hers.
November casts a long shadow.....
Love Birds hanging out in the tree...there are always a few nests in the Red Maple ~ new life and the occasional one we find dead under the tree. Circle of life, I suppose.
The round beads are gorgeous agates. The netting is seed beads in sizes 8, 11, and 15, the love birds were a gift, and the pendant is from Kabela Design. I picked it up at the last bead show Cynthia and I went to. Maybe someday there will be flowers in it, or lace, or a haiku. The possibilities are endless.
