Ginkgo biloba_ a Performance

The beauty of the Ginkgo biloba, one of the oldest living tree species_ a living fossil_ is the light it offers in our fall garden.

Extraordinary behavior as nearly all the leaves fall within the same period, a final performance orchestrated_ a golden carpet lay at his feet.

Custom Earrings

Shopping for Christmas gifts is not a part of our routine, but I was thinking about my new earrings and that it would be a nice gift for someone who might be looking for ideas this time of year.

I don't wear much jewelry_ one reason being an allergy to certain metals. But then I became acquainted with a lovely young woman, the very talented Jenni who owns CascadiaBeads. 

She carefully handcrafts each order to ones specification and from beautiful Czech glass beads in various colors, shapes and sizes. Go to her site and see what might be of interest.

Dangle sterling silver earrings with a favorite color_ jade.
