My fascination with nature’s artistic creations through textures and patterns continues. It’s amazing how different each tree’s bark is.

It’s truly a fine autumn, blue sky days, fleecy white clouds from time to time, and that balmy stillness as the heat of summer with it’s particular style of energy begins to ease out letting the plants begin to wind down. Soon the leaves of this tree with change colours, and begin to fall as the tree begins to rest and reserve it’s energies over the coming winter in readiness for a spring.
The last of the tomato crop is slowly ripening and proving good eating. The mandarins are rapidly filling out and I’m looking for the first hint of the gorgeous orange skin to show. There is so much blossom on the lime and the lemon and the bees are busy about their work of ensuring those blooms pollinate and become new fruit.
It’s a good time of year to prepare for a winter project to keep creativity awake. I will miss daylight saving time and those extra hours of daylight, but it’s also nice to be in a warm place, making something beautiful - a crochet rug, or some embroidery, or perhaps a short story that I’m happy about.
Meanwhile I rather like sitting out on the deck and imagining images and shapes in those fleecy clouds overhead.

The paper bark on some of the street trees is interesting. The colour ranges from really dirty, almost sooty, through to soft rose and gleaming white. It depends on the stage of the shedding process as well as the type of tree. I enjoy the various textures and patterns created by the shedding process. Spiders often weave webs in the layers adding another dimension to the texture and patterns.
Just stretching out, sometimes things get a little cramped around here.
