The rain has been continuously with us since Irene hit and devastated so many of our neighbors. The hot sunny mornings have vanished into mornings of gloom. Still there is lots of beauty in my surroundings as the water gives it’s accents to the cherry tomatoes, asparagus ferns, rasberries, trumpet vine and roses.

The colors are also beginning to come to the fall change and there are hints of yellows, reds, oranges and browns.

The Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival held the end of September at the Washington County Fairgrounds was filled with beautiful animals and so many fine things. Lots of wonderful people visited and I had fun talking with customers and neighbors.

I brought many of my small prints and cards to Gardenworks this week. What a gorgeous store it is! The big old barn filled with flowers, plants, unique farm oriented gifts and a lovely gallery upstairs amidst the dried flowers below the massive old beams. I love to have my work there because it is in farm country, 1055 route 30, Salem, New York. And yes, Amity Farm Batik has lots of “farmscapes,” garden scenes, as well as horses and some unicorns also have been known to appear. It is the perfect place for my work to be.

  • Gorgeous batik creations from you here, Carol. I think my favourite is the one at the top with the cows. Hope there are some sunny skies ahead for you.
