As I’m preparing for my Sewing Summit class, I thought I’d share some fall pictures I’ve taken from here in the lovely midwest.  I wish I could take a whole day just to drive around and take pictures, but the backyard and around town will have to do for now.

 Someone’s hiding in the pampas grass.

The last of our raspberries ready to be eaten.

Neighbor’s wood pile.

Lastly, we have two apple trees in our yard, combined they produced one apple this year, yes one.  Usually there are so many, but with the crazy weather this spring and summer it just didn’t happen.  So we were in awe of this one apple, carefully leaving it on the tree so it ripened.  Until the other day when I went to check on it, and found it in the grass – being eaten by the ants.  Hmph.

    Your photographs are gorgeous. I just look at them and think “Quilt. Quilt. Quilt.” – each one perfectly captures the beauty of natural colour!

    Lucky ants! What gorgeous photos. At first I saw ‘pajama grass’– made me laugh. :)

    Stupid ants! We didn’t get any apples this year- I think the blossoms froze. Love the pictures!

    Oh no. Bad ants! Hey, we have 2 baby apple trees. I wonder if there are any apples? We planted our orchard in an out-of-the-way place so we often forget about it…. That’s so bad!

    Those ants must have been eyeing it off too! They just got up earlier than the human population at your house one day! You’ve just got to laugh at life some days don’t you.

    Sorry about the apple :( That figures…darn ants!

    Love the grass and wood shots, and Natalie too. I sure miss having a real fall – Kansas was wonderful during that season. Love fall in the midwest!! Thanks for sharing, as always Anna.
