Autumn garden photos

It's starting to look a bit like autumn in my backyard. Here are some pictures I took this morning. They all get a little bigger if you click 'em.

Dried Sunflower Heads

Dried Sunflower Heads With Morning Glory

Some Ornamental Grass

The Burning Bush is Starting To Burn

Knitting News
The Kelebek Vest is about 12 inches long now. Three more inches until I start the armhole and neckline shaping. At that point the work will seem to speed up, because it will lose a lot of girth in the last 10 inches of knitting. Then, it's time to cut the steeks! Stay tuned!

Great pics! The trees are starting to bloom down here and the second wave of butterflies is upon us. Yeah, I won't miss this place. I'm glad I can at least vicariously experience fall through your pics.

Are you going to do some before and after steek pictures? I'm fascinated by steeking.

Sounds like your flying along on the vest. Very productive, aren't you?!

Love the pictures. It makes me happy to live in Wisconsin. I love the colors - those desert dwellers and heat seekers are missing out.

I love autumn. I need to take some autumn pics around the house too.

The Fair Isle is gorgeous. I really am in love with it!

Three inches from the arms & neckline shaping? Awesome! It's gorgeous.

Pretty autumn pictures.

Autumn is here too, and your pics are awesome! The pink of the Morning Glory against the brown of the dried sunflower heads is a great contrast.

And now, I am all caught up on Miss E. HOORAY! Sorry I've been off the map. It's good to be back! I hope you're feeling better too.

Gorgeous as always, Elizabeth. Photos AND the sweater. Please give us the play by play on the steeking!
