Last weekend we had a beautiful drive through Nova Scotia's Wentworth Valley. The colours were spectacular, as they always are at this time of year.
Yesterday we enjoyed more of the same on our dirt road travels over Lynn Mountain.
Known for blueberry production, the red fields on Lynn stretch in every direction as far as the eye can see. We took a short drive down this side road to the quarry. Although we traditionally associate yellows, golds, and browns with our fall/Thanksgiving palette, clearly red is part of the mix as well.
I have been sewing red for another seasonal project as well. I actually began this commissioned piece last January hoping to have it finished well before the deadline, but that hasn't happened.
Fingers crossed, it will all come together by week's end, and delivered to its new home on time.
