Illustration Friday - Fast


The leaves are changing fast. We have a huge poplar tree across the street that can be seen from our front window. I love that tree, so big and strong. It makes the greatest sound when the wind blows.

Humboldt City Nevada




One of my favorite ghostowns around our area. It has many rock house foundations and one rock structure that still has four walls. Large trees all around and evidence of mining into a hill out the back of one of the structures. They just started digging about 5ft out the back door. I also found a grave site. They found a nice site in a quiet tree grove close to the creek. There was a partial sign with love on it.

Garden Potting Shed


I love little potting sheds for the garden chores, especially when they are made with recycled materials and they have a great charm about them. Build it under some large shade trees, surround it with cottage flowers and fill it with bags of dirt, clay pots and packet of seeds. What a great place to escape...
