Loved the story of your secret closet project. Artists must create, in spite of fathers. :) Now I know where all those dahlia tubers I planted went! Happy beginning to Fall!

I love your secret closet story and that your dad fussed about it forever! My mom let us paint on our walls. My brother had a huge rock star scene on his wall. I had a little horse and a butterfly. Sweet memories. Your farm patterns are so cute!! What a beautiful dahlia!

The transition to autumn is one that I look forward to the most, usually. This summer has been too hot and dry in our part of the world, and
I'm looking forward to the cooler weather and to rainy days for my garden. Your garden looks especially lovely this year Vicki. What a wonderful surprise that dahlia is. I picked a couple yesterday to add to an arrangement. These last flowers before the frosts to come always seem like treasure to me.

LOL, and yes, the tubers...still a mystery!

You had a cool mom! Stenciling was as far as we went with painting on the walls when my kiddo's were younger. There are still grasshoppers and butterflies in one room--they don't want to paint over it.

The cooler weather has arrived here with a little rain today, so nice for a change. It's been alarmingly dry here as well, many trees in our area are not doing well at all. So sad.

I am inspired to pick up the sewing projects I left behind when summer arrived--and settle in. Nice to hear from you sweetie!
