My words and my pictures. All I have

Tilted sunset

I have a strange feeling today. It’s not something that I can identify, but it’s there. Maybe something is about to happen? If that’s the case, I hope it’s something good. Or maybe it’s just that the weather is finally getting colder, lots of trees are already on their way to being leafless, and summer colors are definitely gone from the scene.

On another note, I’m very happy today. Last weekend I caught a TV program about gardening, just when they were explaining how to plant tulips – tulips are my favorite flowers, even though I’ve only seen them in pictures. It’s not a commonly grown plant where I live, but at least now I know that I can grow them myself. So today I headed out to the nursery, and came home with two tulip bulbs, and, to my delight, two crocus bulbs! If all goes well, next spring I should see these flowers in person for the first time in my life. There’s such a sense of magic to that thought…

In the meantime, and since the cold weather has arrived, I’ve taken up my crochet work again, and the sweater I left unfinished last year is finally on its way to becoming a sweater. I love crocheting and knitting in the winter, it’s so relaxing. I don’t know how I’ll balance everything I’m doing, but somehow I will.

These shots are from Saturday. I must warn you, I got –quite a lot– carried away with tilted horizons. I don’t know why, I don’t like how they work anywhere else, but at this beach, tilting the camera can create some wonderful shots. Hope you like them!
