Fabric Boxes and the Garden (Done for the Winter)

I wanted something to do just for the fun of it.  Something easy; something that doesn’t require a lot of concentration.

So I made these.

Fabric Boxes

The cute little boxes will make nice gifts, once I decide what to fill them with.

I was going to share some wonderful photos of the last of my blooming garden flowers…purple asters.

But there was some shenanigans going on, and I never got to take those photos.

One day I have blossoms, and the next day, they are somebody’s salad.

Sheesh!

Nevertheless, I can share a photo of some fabulous fall color.

And a close-up…just because it is so pretty.

A Stroll in the Garden

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. “Albert Camus

“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.” ― Jim Bishop

“The tints of autumn…a mighty flower garden blossoming under the spell of the enchanter, frost.” 
― John Greenleaf Whittier

October

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came,—
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band….
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky….

~George Cooper, “October’s Party”

Why am I sharing a photo of the top of one of my pear trees with a blurred clothesline stretched across?

Bear in Pear Tree

Oh.  That’s why!  Look who’s in the tree!

Bear Under Pear Tree

The bears have been busy (this is not the same bear that I shared with you in this post).

Bear Under Pear Tree

What a handsome dude he is!  He eats like a king!

He’ll be eating apples now.  The pear trees are stripped of their treasures until next year’s season of harvest.

The Backyard Visitor

We meet every fall, but I am always surprised when we meet.  This time of year, I know to look around before I decide to catch some Vitamin D and do some yard work.

I know it.  But I don’t always do it.

On this day, I had finished taking photos of a sewing project, and thought that I might as well do a little yard work while I was outside anyway.

That’s when I noticed her.

Brown Bear

I keep a cautious eye, but I’m not worried.  We’ve met before.  But this time, I have my camera handy.

What is she interested in?

The pears aren’t ripe yet, but she likes them just the way they are.
