The Pumpkin Patch

I went in for my yearly check-up and got the Shingles and Pneumonia shots, one in each arm.  Wow my arms were sore.  I could hardly use them for several days.

Hope everyone is doing well, and thank you all for the lovely comments and stopping by my blog.

A Festival of Colors

Greetings, the rains are here, the smoke is gone and I can finally see the blue sky.  I have just been finding it hard to come up with a design lately.  I hope my creativity hasn't got up and left. I think this staying home all the time is finally getting to me.  I can't remember when the last time I went out to eat at a restaurant or for that matter gone anywhere fun.  I sure hope next year is an improvement and we can get back to a normal life.

Happy Autumn from our Gnome to yours

Hello, hope everyone is well.  We are on week two of hazardous air, the fires burning in California, Oregon and Washington have created a heavy smoke layer that has decided to hang around for a while.  On some days the visibility is so bad you can't see the house across the street.  Rain is expected later this week so maybe it will clear some of the air and help with the fires.

I really like these little gnomes, I find them useful in all sorts of designs.

Ghost Brew

 Greetings, we had a wind storm last night and now the smoke from the fires burning in Eastern Washington are going to stick around for a few days.  It makes the air quality terrible.  There are so many fires burning on the west coast that the sun is now a bright glowing red ball.  Hopefully next week we are due for some rain.

Pileated Woodpecker
Sorry about the terrible picture, I took the picture from the window inside the house.  These woodpeckers are really big and loud.  they peck out bugs and termites from mostly dead tree stumps.  I think this is where the Woody the Woodpecker cartoon character came from.

The pileated woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus) is a woodpecker native to North America. This insectivorous bird is an inhabitant of deciduous forests in eastern North America, the Great Lakes, the boreal forests of Canada, and parts of the Pacific Coast. It is the second-largest woodpecker in the U.S., after the critically endangered and possibly extinct ivory-billed woodpecker.[2] The term "pileated" refers to the bird's prominent red crest, with the term from the Latin pileatus meaning "capped"

We in the Pacific Northwest are in the last few weeks of Summer.  We are actually having a heat wave this week and into next.  My tomatoes, squash and cucumbers are loving it.  But when the rains start that will be that.

Halloween Pop-Up design, I really like that these fold flat for mailing.
