Happy....


......Autumnal Equinox, which officially occurs at 4:44 PM or 20:44 for those international readers who might be stopping by.




And for all the J.R.R. Tolkien fans out there, a Happy Birthday to Bilbo and Frodo Baggins.  If I were more organized I would be offering a mathom or two......perhaps next year.

We had rain all night and for the better part of the morning, but it has begun to clear.  The clouds are quickly heading west.  It's going to get cool again tonight, but not cold enough for frost.

My one large surviving dahlia has begun to bloom.  The rain knocked the stem of this bloom around so I brought it inside to enjoy.


Fall is coming.  There is a flock of grackles grakeling around the pond and woods.  They are loving the pond.  This is an unexpected benefit to having a water feature in the yard.  I hope we'll be seeing many more birds coming through.

I'm supposed to be writing my artist's statement for my upcoming show.....which I will find many and all excuses to avoid doing.  I don't like to say too much about my stuff as I believe that once I put it out in  the world it should speak for itself.  What a viewer brings is as important as what I give.

I think my computer keyboard needs cleaning!

Enjoy the day!  As always, thanks for stopping by.........*s*

  2. Good to be able to visit your site again. My PC warned your previous post because of a link to ceramic art site! They must have got virus or hacker! I love watching bird bathing. So relaxing. I have shared my own artist statement on the Friday post. Lots of people said they like my statement during the show! ; )

    1. Hi Midori....It's nice to have you back. I'm not quite sure why there would be a warning on the Mud Colony post. As far as I know there hasn't been a problem there.

      I should have read your statement before I started mine. Perhaps I'll post is in a few days.

    1. Hi Sandy.....Thanks. The dahlias feel like a real treat as most of them rotted.
      Hope you get enough rain to solve water shortages.

    1. Hi Michele....I truly believe that work should not need an artist's statement.

  6. Dearest Suzi,
    You're quite an artist, a writer and enjoying your garden to the fullest. Love your dahlia; what a huge flower. Glad you rescued it and put it near your pet dragon.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  7. Yes, it suddenly feels like autumn here too. A dry chill was in the air when I took the pup for her morning walk, it felt so good.
