too much rain, so much gold

thunder and driving rains tonight.
Sheltie dog Kalie paces, hates this.
too much rain, too much water.
yet fall's glory always shines
in hidden places
stitching is done for a dear friend
stitching still to do for
a personal goal
before the rains tonight i gathered marigolds
dry, bright and with purpose
and strung them as the rain
poured on
not new england's finest fall
but oh, so beautiful even so.


  1. those garlands remind me of you know who! we're not getting the hard rains that you are over in n.h. but enough, today, really autumnal.

  2. yes we know who and now i love taking the time to string the buds as a result! it's mindful and so much better when getting ready to dye with them!

  3. fall is always beautiful
    even if there are a few drippy moments...

  4. you've taught me this india
