Perfect fall day in Palo Alto, warm and sunny after a light sprinkle of rain. Our little ginko is turning yellow and will soon drop its leaves. The neighbor’s Sweet Gum (liquid amber) is brilliant this year.

Quilters know how to pick up these fall colors. The quilt below shows this.

This small Zapotec rug is drying on the porch. I love the color and design.
