Finally back in town and a little caught up on “work.” It has been very hot and the outdoors around here has all brown. We finally had a few random thunderstorms and a little green has come back to the plant life. My ginkgo tree has had some rough times this year, early warm up in the spring followed by a late hard frost left all the new growth, dead, then all this hot dry summer. It is looking beautiful this week. I love all the variety of leaf shapes. I will miss it when we move.
It was also an inspiration for my green inches swap hosted by Melissa. Dear SA thought I was a little crazy when I showed him the tiny little pieces. I love all the texture and it was just what I needed to help jump start the creative juices to continue on with the fall collections.
