It's rainy here this morning and colors seem to explode on a wet, cloudy morning like this.
I'm quilting a small log cabin quilt I made for my mom. I love the colors in it. I used a variety of fabrics from my thrift shop stash and it worked. There is an old red woven shirt, made in India. There is a silky black scrap, shot with gold (Paula leftover). There's even a creamy silky tie (Don-O leftover).
The rich colors made me notice more rich colors outside.
Look at our produce basket.
Here's a view of our garden now, it's about as lush as it will get. The tomatoes are plentiful. And notice our new rain barrel in the background, it's satisfying to have it.
Raindrops are still clinging to the pine needles too. Hmmm, what an abstract design.
The rain brought fresh, cooler weather with it. We are in for a few not-at-all-normal cool August days. Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh......
