Friday Sketches

Welcome to Friday Sketches.  What a wonderful week it's been. The extreme cold has given us a break these past few days and the temperature has hovered around freezing, a nice relief that has given me the opportunity to get out and walk the forest trails.

I am amazed at how the winter has prematurely settled in.  The streams and rivers are all frozen solid, the forests are completely bare, and the few animals that remain active over winter have been gathering their stores.  It's beautiful to see the mid-western world settle into a long slumber, but for an Aussie girl like me, it's difficult to face the long winter months, knowing it could be anything up to 6 months before I feel the warm green grass under my feet again.

So in honor of natures endless and unpredictable cycle, I thought I'd share this sketch I did from September when I scribbled my thoughts about the end of summer.  Oh, what a glorious summer it was.  I'll be holding onto my many sketches and memories of the warm sunny days and the glorious garden until the summer arrives here again.
