No paint required

Today I discovered land art.

It’s a movement that started in the late 60’s and early 70’s by artists using natural materials to create sculptures.

Richard Schilling‘s work below is a perfect example.

He used rowan berries to create this beautiful autumnal gradation of color.

Rowan berries. Who knew?

Dog days

Is Snoopy happy here?

That strategically placed leaf gives the appearance of a smile. But what is the greatest spokesdog of all time really thinking?

I’ve decided he’s happy.

Possibly not at being blown around by the wind at that particular moment…but I was none too pleased at getting caught in a surprise shower yesterday before my trip to Boston, and I’m still awfully glad to see the arrival of fall.

In fact, I’ve been celebrating all the firsts. First socks. First pair of boots. First sweatshirt, first fleece jacket, first quilted vest.

When I can put on my flannel jammies — well, that will be a real party.

Welcome autumn! I’m so glad you’re here.

Walk about

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

That is never more true than early on a fall morning in New York City’s Central Park.

Dog’s pretty cute, too.
