There have been some gorgous blue skies in Colorado lately. Just blue enough to get lost in. Highlighting the blue sky, a dead cottonwood tree next door was stark white with the sun shining brightly on it. There were geometric patterns and sub-patterns.

I suspect this week will be the last for the morning glories as a hard freeze is coming. We even had thunder and lightening tonight, but cold is coming. Seeing that it is almost the end of October it's time for cooler weather. I will have to move on from my flower subjects til next spring, unless. . . . I took the dog out for a run yesterday, I walked and did pretty good. The sun was shining just right on the cottonwood trees along Cherry Creek. It lit them up like a line of gold in the middel of the dry field.

Just added Anna Troth's new blog to my links. She had a birthday and so did I. We got an old saddle to add to the decorations at the cabin. I love the patterns the tooled leather presented and made a couple of mandala out of them. I am glad someone else has the patience to tool the leather although maybe it is automated now - no matter how, the patterns are sure intricate.

Morning Glories are beautiful. The ones I planted this spring are just now starting to bloom prolifically - a little late in the season considering we just got our first warning of a possible freeze. So until they bit the dust with a freeze I will enjoy them! I love the sprial pattern that the tightly closed buds present. Then the unfolding! The pattens they present are neat. I'll upload a couple more in the coming days.
