Nature inspired

I am always inspired by nature, our surrounds are so beautiful and colorful right now. For the past few months we never return home, from a walk outside, without a little flower bouquet. Right now sunflowers, coreopsis and indian blanket are abundant around here.
So I started a little project, a scarf, for autumn with a color that remind me of sunflowers and autumn too. It is quite bright, but I have olive skin, so I think will work well for me.
Also I am reading "A Pocketful of Pinecones " by Karen Andreola
This book is a easy read and quite delightful, specially for anyone who likes Charlotte Mason.
Since I been talking about nature inspired things...The little egg shell on one of my photos come from the Barn Swallow nest in my patio. Also the picture with the bird on my window, happen this past weekend when this beautiful Summer Tanager decided to fly in as my husband opened our front door. I never seen one before this.  Have you seen one like it or have you even had a bird enter you house like that?

  1. The color of your scarf is really lovely - and will be a sunny thing come autumn. I also wanted to say I loved Pocketful of Pinecones when I read it years ago. If I'm remembering correctly, Karen Andreola inspired me to see nature around me as a town girl (because this was a family who lived in town and explored and appreciated nature from that vantage point. One doesn't have to live in remote places (or even just "in the country" to see the miracles of nature. It helped me immensely homeschooling boys I wanted to have an appreciation for nature, but not having a lot of land on which to do it.

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment. I am glad to read that somebody else likes a Pocketful of Pinecones, Karen Andreola is such a inspiration, have you visit her blog? It is lovely, like a visit with a friend.

  2. Beautiful colour for an autumn scarf.
