Though with a cold, biting wind, Sunday dawned bright and sunny in many ways. Wondering if the strong wind we’d been having lately had taken down most of the color, my plan was to go out in my car to peep the last of the leaves. Out in our garage, however, I discovered my battery was dead!
Undeterred, I stepped out on our deck to sketch, but the harsh wind was uncomfortable. No matter. My studio window gave me nearly the same view of our neighbor’s huge Japanese maple blazing in the afternoon sun.
Everything looks more beautiful now.
