Although we tend to associate Autumn with yellows, golds and reds, purple is a perfect player and counterpoint to all these warm and glowing colors; even influencing our craft projects, I noticed. It's lovely to see such creativity in action. Something I hope to be settling back into again soon. At the moment though, I am feeling the urgency that always hits me this time of year. The need to finish up all the outdoor projects before the rainy season returns. I'm not sure this is even possible, we have so many, but we hold out hope til the end. I was also reminded that it's time to plant bulbs! We have boxes of them rescued from various beds around the yard (that had some sort of construction going on), along with Iris, that all need to go somewhere. I have a new location in mind. But now it's just a matter of timing. It's a race against the clock. Tick...tick...tick.
