This gourd was a mother's day gift ages ago, from Jay, who tied a bamboo cork on the top, making it a water bottle. I've painted and revived it as a birdhouse (with a ceramic egg on the top for fertility!)
I've taken as many walks as possible these last weeks to enjoy the fall colors.
Last week, Gracie and I took the Boone Fork Trail; we found a big flat rock in the middle of the creek....I stretched out on it, looking at the brilliant blue sky, framed by yellow leaves, leaves drifting down....when I finally looked up, Gracie was swimming serenely around the little pond the creek made, nipping gently at the fallen leaves. Moment of perfection!
