So I will soldier on with more cards .. which is an ALL GIRL card night .. women are the powerful beings on this planet (sorry guys .. but I know you are secretly relieved ? haha)
No ugly hags ... all a myth ... unless some one has seen me first thing in the morning and the statement begs "what the heck do you think you are looking at PAL ?"!!!!
OK .. I have to say this is the first of a Halloween "nutshell" I have ever heard of .. makes me wonder how much more I really haven't a clue about ... and it is nice to know I can still see things I haven't seen before ?
I'm sure there is something very Freudian about this scenario .. go figure ?
Husband would disagree that I only have one hour to do mischief in ... a lot of years has taught him THAT !
A couple of mornings ago it was a full on show stopper sunrise .. I hadn't seen one in months and months .. so I was "gobsmacked" and taking pictures with shaky hands (no coffee yet) well .. I can't illustrate how unbelievable it looked .. the black corner to the left is our eavestrough ? so you can get the scale of what was going on ...
The illumination from the bottom was simply amazing and got stronger and stronger
It literally turned the sky completely pink and fuchsia ... it was stunning : )
This is our male tree arm .. for a point of reference
It was over way too soon .. I wish I had better pictures .. it was so darn beautiful !
Winthrop thought it was a good start to the day as well ?
The boys agreed wholeheartedly ... that was the last blue sky I have seen since then .. ugh !!
But that evening the moon played pee-a-boo over my neighbor's maple tree ... yes .. my neighborhood has a lot of maple trees .. and I love them all !
There were veil like clouds moving in .. it was perfect watching them float around the moon ..
Like shadows on the moon ...
So the rain moved in .. and out Pacific Sunset Maple has been trying to pump out its colours before it is too late .. poor dear .. and suffering from "measles" aka "black tar spot"
Dave and the boys wanted a picture taken with the colour show ...
Then the maple wanted an alone picture ... (kind of temperamental but sweet really)
I had to take some raindrop pictures .... my rosemary and thyme and parsley ... they are holding on a while longer yet ! : )
... yes .... I had to do it in sepia too ... it looks great ! : )
