Hi! [continuing from Friday] ~ All is not soft and drab. Away from the beach there are hints of Fall charm. As Mo and I walk each afternoon, tiny of pops of color can be found if I look carefully in the dunes edges and back gardens. There is extra joy in finding red rose hips, or dry magenta hydrangea heads.
Morning glories continue to bloom and spread seeds and smiles.
Below is an infinity scarf I knitted, inspired by the deep blues and purples of Fall at the beach. Malabriga Yarn, "Violetta" and variegated purple and blue recycled sari silk yarn. [NYC, Hurricane Sandy souvenir]
Perhaps the scarf echoes the landscape of the beach?
My friend modelling for us. The Malabriga yarn is so soft, silk and alpaca I think.
More purple inspiration, late blooming petunias peeking through the grey wooden fence.
Red rose hips, golden rose leaves.
Marigolds thrive in November.
I can imagine a new eternity scarf in the brilliant orange with pops of begonia pink! That would warm up a winter day, wouldn't it . HERE Malabriga worsted, "Sunset'' and ''BerryBerry''
Blog friend Penny from South Africa suggests stripping the leaves and displaying the purple berry branches in an aqua Bourne pottery jug! Now I wish I could cut some, but they're in someone's yard!
Mo is snuggly these days.
But he also enjoys his walks more on cooler days.
He is quite puzzled by this 2-D pug who won't play with him.
gone to the beach....
