HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL! I know we had a mighty hot, dry summer - but it seems to me that fall has arrived far quicker that I could have imagined when we were suffering through 100F weather!

My persimmons are not quite ready-- but they are on the trees - both at home and at the Arboretum. Already I can imagine their sweet taste and the desserts I'll craft from them .... now to be patient enough to let them ripen!

It's a rainy wet day for fall's entry, but we're glad for the moisture and quietness of a grey day. It's been a wild week and I'm looking forward to catching up on rest and painting!

Hope your first day of fall is terrific!

A gorgeous painting for the first day of Autumn Lin. I love the colors -- the persimmon and the leaves compliment each other so well.

Ah yes, it does seem that we went directly from a very hot summer into a cold wet fall but I am so relieved to feel the cooler temps even though it is misting rain and will be all day and all weekend. I have your beautiful painting to go to for some sunshine.
Big hugs,
