So I decided I might yap a bit more on these daily blog entries (I hope without putting you to sleep). These October flowers, in my daughter’s yard in San Diego, were hanging on regardless of the time of year (San Diego life!). They were the same color as a pumpkin-colored orb weaver spider in the yard who was beautiful to observe — from a distance! When it crawled up its web on those Halloween-scary spider legs I yelped pretty loudly and backed up. Quickly. Watercolor and pen sketch.
