Mums The Word... from From the Strawberry Patch...

... well, actually autumn is the word; the chrysanthemums have been planted and there's most definitely been a change in the weather; cooler, breezy days have replaced the heat and humidity for a refreshing new perspective. I baked an apple pie this past week from the fruit that I picked while visiting New England the week before. It turned out great, no so with the InstantPot recipe for baked

'Tis Apple Season from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

On Wednesday, I made a quick road trip with DH to haul some cattle to the sale barn (not the one where I work). It's 2 hours there. Two hours back. And we're back home by noon. Heck around here that means you can get in another 8 hours of working. Grin. Actually, the days are getting shorter and it's pretty darn dark by 7:30 these days. And that's just fine and dandy with me because most days,

Sisters Under The Stars (and Beyond!) from From the Strawberry Patch...

While we were visiting family last week we had the privilege of being front and center at an outdoor movie! My sister always thinks of the most fun and creative ways to spend time together. We don't get to do this nearly often enough, and with the current state of this upside down

Visiting the Apple Orchards from From My Carolina Home

This is a transitional time in the year for me, still too hot to be considered autumn, but September doesn’t feel like summer either.  This weekend should be the annual Apple Festival, but the downtown street festival is canceled this year.  Instead, the apple orchards are doing individual sales of their apples this weekend, allowing visitors to wander in the orchards to pick their own apples, and some with extra things like a corn maze or live music.  There are 14 orchards on the official tour, and several more that are not.  We still are not comfortable in crowds ...

Birds in the Orchard 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Lots of space to quilt! I think I would basically cross hatch, but add a few flying birds swooping and gliding over the surface.

No birds on the second design, but the little fountains and the apple trees are sure to attract them sometime.

Again, lots of space to quilt, and once again I would keep it simple, with straight lines echoing those narrow borders, and yes, those birds would be flying around.

The last couple of days I have noticed a lot of birds flying around in addition to the few small birds which fly around the garden catching ...
