Ice Storm

When it rains ice, it makes you want to stay home. But if you have to go out, bring your camera cuz it sure can be pretty!

Normally, here in Northwestern Ohio, the leaves have fallen by trick-or-treat evening. But this year, when I look up, I still see lots of leaves! And still quite a bit of color.
Oh, and I noticed a little hornet condo hanging from a dogwood branch. It was probably there all summer, but hidden by the leaves.

Beans, beans, the glorious fruit

I hope I didn't pick these too soon, but a frost is in the forecast and I don't want to lose them.

Yes, it can get stormy here at lake columbia, but when the wind and rain are finished, the most glorious sunsets show us their magical skies.

I found these at a cute shop on my way up to the cottage. I think they will be grand to wear when I go puddle jumping, don't you?

I decided to knit a scarf. It's been awhile. Guess I had a little "intermission" of my own.
