Firstly, thankyou so much for all the votes and thoughts on my etsy banner. The single bird looking right towards the text (which Sue and I haven’t made yet) has won by a birdy mile. That will be the image at the top of my shop when it opens soon.
As promised, I’ll be photographing and posting colour this week and the first week of every month until February. The images to be found in the Splash of Colour flickr pool are a joy and we’ve only just begun! Thankyou to everyone who has said they’ll join in- I can hardly wait to see. I have a feeling there’ll be some very happy eyes in the next few days.
I’ve noticed that the autumnal trees seem more vivid this year. We haven’t had any strong wind storms in East Anglia so the leaves have clung on for longer. It’s beautiful. When the sun is shining the trees seem to glow. I have to admit that I’m enjoying autumn and the colour is a major part of that.
Pop over to Mrs Speechless - she’s posted some early morning colour too. I never realised before but I know now that I need some Disney princess plasters.
Right. I need to learn how to make mosaics.
