My Happy Toes

As the bands of clouds that forecast the coming of TS Hanna edge on it, I decide to make the most of what is left of summer.
Here in central VA (Virginia) that is a good month or more away. The first frost will come towards the end of October, and the weather will gradually cool. My pomegranates will ripen (I hope ;)) and the leaves will leave the tree. It happens a lot later than our friends to the North, and while I am enjoying the foretasting of autumn they are giving me, I am also lapping up the dregs of warm weather.

My Happy toes will stay in sandals until it is just too cold to wear them- usually around the time it is frosty ;) In the meantime, I draw them resting on a step ladder in front of me- painted toenails and all :) I will have to figure out how to make magenta paint next, because they are magenta NOT red... ;)


  1. Ya got cute toes, whatever the color of polish!! Great sketch!

  2. I just came over from KathyJo's blog to thank you for that comment about the Handbook of Nature Study blog. I want to get us going with nature study & drawing, and that looks very helpful!
    I like your blog! Noticed the "kindred spirits" particularly because we watched the first episode of Anne of Green Gables last night.

  3. Yes, nice feet drawing! I'm with you on this and will keep my toes happy and free as long as I can!

  4. Terrific drawing!
    Hope you are faring okay with the storm Hanna.

  5. Thanks Betty :)
    Melora, you are more than welcome- I try to share some of the great resources I find :) Glad you like my blog :)
    Del- I am definitely a barefoot person. Except for when it means going near places with snakes... ;)
    Ann, thanks! The storm passed through after dumping a few inches of rain on us (desperately needed anyway) and blowing a little :)
