In The Backyard This Morning

Autumn is here in mid-MO. There's dew on the grass and leaves in the morning with the temps in the mid- to hi-50s.

Here's what we saw this morning -

The spider that built is wondrous web began sometime yesterday morning, worked throughout the day and was there again this morning repairing the damage caused by last night's insects. The dew showed off her work to perfection.

This Seedum plant has exceeded my wildest expectations. Thought it would grow to a foot or so tall - but has instead grown to be at least twice that tall and way wide. I love these plants as they produce pale green buds early in the summer that turn to light pink in mid-summer. Now that Fall has arrived they're this beautiful rich pink that will eventually turn to brown. Sometime after the first of the year when we're certain to have snowfall the flowers will turn to snowflowers.

And, they will do the very same next year. Wonderful

Great students ! ! ! I enjoyed the afternoons spent with these two gals.

Aren't these two quilts showing off the weave pattern in Mo's Basket to it's best advantage?

Ambitious Janet will enlarge her green with blue floral into a bed-sized quilt while Dianna's pink and yellow baby quilt will no doubt comfort the baby that receives this gift.
