A little Fall Foliage
This time of year, I really crave fall foliage! Considering that I spent most of my life in Southern California, where we all know the sun shines 360+ days of the year, I can only blame my early childhood for this phenomenon... I lived in Northern California for the first 10 years, mostly in the far north of the state where we did have changing seasons. Here in Northern Arizona, we do get the Aspens turning, and several other native or compatible species that turn colors, but in our yard, we don't have that many trees that do. I have several small Gambel Oaks, a Poplar that is just my height, and a couple of Amur Maples that really don't scream 'AUTUMN!!!' the way I would like! So here is an art quilt I made several years ago... it will just have to do to satisfy my craving for Autumn Leaves!
And here is a batik 'Autumn Leaves' I did a couple of years ago:
