Russet Fields

comments: 87


Beautiful weather. Time alone together. The feeling of expectation. A walk in the russet fields. Sweetest of the sweetest people. Pumpkins and pies. Making a quilt (him). Knitting (me). Woodsmoke and raindrops. Sunflowers and birdsong. The whole weekend felt like a gift. Every minute.


This russet-field beauty was at Kruger's Farm on Saturday.











"What kind of dog is that?" Why, she's a Cardigan Welsh corgi :-). My little Clover Meadow so bright.





She lags behind if I'm behind.





Everything glowed.

I think the UFO some think is a bird is actually something blowing off the sunflowers?????? Did you see it as you took the picture? What is it? It's a bird, it's a plane, it's SUPER BUD?

My goodness...this is some of the best photography I've seen from you. Lovely!

Now that I have zoomed in on that bird/bud, I think it IS a bird....also there is a bee in the photo. hmmmmm very clever photography.

I love how some of those pictures showed exactly what it can be like in this area: Sort of dark one second and then blindingly, weirdly bright another. It's a wonder we're not all in a complete state of clothing-appropriateness-confusion (if that were a state). Sunglasses on, sunglasses off... sunglasses on, sunglasses off...

You are so right - beautiful photos!


i hope she got to wrap it around some of that caramel apple.

Gorgeousness! Seriously your pictures are stunning.

This is where I met you! Almost exactly three years ago. Oh my goodness, now I find out about the baby that will come to your lives soon! Ohhhhhhh this makes me sooo happy, Alicia!!! Super congratulations. I will be going to Kruger sometime this weekend. Oh how I love that place. I am sending hugs your way. :)

Honestly, I did it springer looks exactly like Clover Meadow without the pointy ears! I did the cover the ears thing on the screen and realized again....they are...dopplegangers! The adventures of a ruralian on Nowheresville, Maine! Thank for the pics!

I am so incredibly inspired by your love of life and beauty and the tiny, still moments. When I come to your site in the middle of a work day it's like I've been refreshed and reminded of what is really important in life.

And . . . does your husband have any single guy friends?! I cannot believe your luck in finding someone who . . . makes quilts?! That is something that would happen only in my fantasy dream world! ;)-

That's the most sublime thing thing I've seen in a long time. That light does't seem to exist in Southern California-- the scenery doesn't, either. I miss it. A beautiful post.

What gorgeous photos! These days of autumn are so precious. Thanks, Alicia!
