I’m having a great time playing with the early autumn light. Use these acrylic blocks as suncatchers or paperweights or both. You can find them in one of my online shops by clicking here.

I’m hoping to expand the collection throughout the autumn in time for holiday needs but I think they make unique gifts anytime of year.

In addition to my own images, I see exciting opportunities to work with the digitized images of great works of art that are now available for use in the public domain.  The creative journey continues. 🙂

I didn’t intend to photograph this part of dinner but I felt compelled when the late afternoon sun fell upon the bowl.

The salad is composed of garbanzo beans, bell peppers, red onions, marinated artichokes, chopped tomatoes, tossed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. I almost topped it with the nasturtium bloom but that would have been over the top. 🙂

Very fun to watch this edible herb growing all winter long. And eating it, too! 🙂

Despite my pictures of the icy landscapes that form on some of the windows in this bitter cold, the sun does shine bright through those very same windows and so my plants shake loose their night time chill and seem to thrive though I have been a vary poor caretaker of late.

The geranium continues to thrive and even grow new leaves though I have it sitting in the coldest room in the house but in a spot that gets the most direct sun at a certain time of day.

And I learned long ago that it is best to just let the nasturtium and African violet just be. Not too much water and let them find the sun in their own way.

And while the branches on the oak tree are winter bare, so the sun just pours in, I see an opportunity to plant some sprouts for now and to think about what else I’d like to plant in the future.

It will take awhile for me to download all of the pictures taken during this road trip once more to Dublin, Ireland but one image that I do want to share is of these trees painted on the restaurant window of di luca wines & trattoria. A local artist works with the restaurant to change the window scene. After I am gone the window will become more winter themed though these white trees do remind me of winter. We were lucky enough to get a table at this restaurant. Food was great and the people, both staff and other diners, were wonderful. If you have chance, do visit: https://www.diluca.ie/
