Fall along the River - Nancy Rose

9" x 12"
Arches 140#CP

My heartfelt thanks to Nancy Rose whose magnificent images of fall inspired this painting. Please see Nancy's exquisite photos (www.flickr.com/photos/nancyandwayne/). Thank you so much, Nancy!

Our colors are still mighty bright - and though our evening temperatures are in the 30s and 40sF - our days are incredible warm and can range from 50s to mid 70s! While it's wonderful to walk in warm temperatures, it sure makes clothes layering a major necessity! LOL

Orchard preparations continue, and now we wait for our trees to arrive. Today we work on tidying up the rest of the gardens, organize the day, and work on the kitchen garden.

The cisterns we've also won are due to arrive any day. We will be collecting over 5,000 gallons of water from our greenhouse roofs ... and this water will go right to the orchard.

Should be another wonderful sunny day before rain returns tomorrow ... Hope your day is great!

Oh glorious Fall colors Lin. You have shown them beautifully and oh those reflections in the water -- terrific. The colors are vibrant and I love the green mixed in.

We too have been having a rainy day, a sunny day, repeat,repeat. Today is rain - a day for inside tasks!

Congrats on the cisterns too; what a great way to conserve and water your gardens.
Hugs,
Lorraine

I'm drooling with envy over these gorgeous colors. Things here are so pale!

Love the idea of the new trees being planted and the water coming from your own cisterns. Way to go!

Have a great day, Lin!

Hi Lin,

Such beautiful fall colors. We haven't been blessed yet. Lin, you mentioned Jeans class. Who Jean, and where will her class be?
Are you coming to Long Island? Please let me know.

All the best to you,
Joan
