Harvest Challenge - Blackberries
Another challenge by Bill (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lorus_maver/4935493833/). This time - blackberries! My painting of them tended to show them more 'unripe' than ripened ... but it was fun -- and challenging --- to get all those berries highlighted!! LOL THANKS once more, Bill!
Another incredible morning - cool, cool, cool! I slept with the windows open last night, falling asleep to the music of cicadas and crickets .... the scent of my Tea Olive wafting thru the screen .... how I LOVE these early days of fall! We've another cooler day today ... and I'll enjoy it with the grands ... but the high 90s return later this week as the new season teases its way here.
It's a labor day celebration in the US - and most offices are closed. There are still so many folks unemployed ... and today of all days we need to offer thoughts, encouragement and prayers that they find work. For those of us with jobs, the economy still makes us nervous for the employment situtation has not yet begun to improve very much ... fingers crossed for us all!
Meanwhile, I'm grateful for another day spent at home with my loved ones .. and -- REST!
Have a terrific day!
