This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

impression of the woods

monet woods 2

The woods look like a Monet painting now.

This photo is from last Sunday. Skippy and I followed an old stone wall instead of the path so I would see all the leaves up close. I did a little PhotoShopping to make the picture look more like the woods looked to me. Spots of color. Lots of filtered light. Pastel shades.

Beautiful, the way the leaves appear reminds me of pictures(technique) I have seen by Georges Seurat, in that the leaves look close up like seperate dabs or "finger print like" impressions on a canvas that when standing back blend together to give in this case a wonderful picture of autumn beauty.
You should create a Kathy calendar!
