quilting with John Muir


Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  John Muir


Like quilt pieces, the blue sky fits neatly in with the leaf patterns. Beautiful autumn days stick around well into November. Look up into more skies at Skywatch Friday.

Fabulous autumn colors. I can't choose between the two photos for sheer beauty.
"Like quilting pieces" is so descriptive.
And my dog Lindy says she is happy to have you as her latest fan. She loves people.

Hi, Noni! I really love these photos - such beautiful captures of such a beautiful time of year - and that is my favorite John Muir quote (from whom I have quite a vast collection!) :-)
