Mrs. Tree Beard

We relocated the face on our front tree this week. She looks like something from Picasso. We also put up a new address sign. Lane nipped at our heels to do this when he was here. He said no one could see our old address sign.

Our November Garden

I took this picture at noon today, November 3, Margaret's birthday! The sky was a robin's egg blue, but I didn't get it in the picture.

Wooden Shoes

I bought these wooden shoes in Germany several years ago. Margaret offered to paint them for me and here they are! They are done in the Hindeloopen (Dutch) style. I think they are very beautiful. Margaret is good at her craft!
