Today I will celebrate quite a number of years on this great planet. It truly amazes me how quickly the time passes, the years add up, the seasons melt into one another and repeat with such amazing continuity.

I've painted the glorious flowers C gave me this weekend - but after scanning the painting, I realized that I didn't finish one wee piece of it ... LOL Ah yes, aging! LOL

So I thought I'd post this quick sketch of the fall displays that are on every corner, in every shop, and certainly coloring our roadsides. Yellows, oranges, golds, greens, umbers, siennas -- they've found their way onto my canvases lately, but before that, into my psyche and heart. The harvest time ...the time to gather and celebrate our labors and the bounty of blessings - from family, friends, food, work, life.

Today, I'll do just that. And thank each of you for sharing it all with me.

Lovely scene. I love all the fall flowers and pumpkins and decorative gourds this time of year. Oh, and your painting is lovely! I know we'll see Charles' flowers soon.

The very happiest of birthdays to you. You are a special person with a huge heart and amazingly huge hugs.

So enjoy this special day and may the celebration go on for a week, oh what the heck, for the year!!
