ah autumnness - from the vast & tres plentiful iphoto archives here at 29 black street

As an artist, it is central to be unsatisfied !
This isn't greed, though it might be appetite.

  2. Ah - my girls were asking the same thing as Shamy - chestnut, got it.

    Now they have a follow-up question: what's a chestnut?

    And what is the lovely red leaf that appears in several of the photos?

    We love autumn! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  3. Hey Sweeties (& MS) the red leaf is from a gorgeous vine called Virginia Creeper it crawls up the front of this old brick house

    & chestnut from the Horse Chestnut
    Bees love this tree's blossoms

  9. Thanks for explaining the chestnut and the Virginia Creeper - we were completely entranced by autumn on our recent trip and we've become determined to learn all we can about it.

  10. I just don;t have that gene in me to arrange found objects into such displays of beauty like you do. Always amazing what you do with these--bringing out the beauty from within each object.
