It's a lovely sunny but cold day out there today. I think what makes it seem so cold is the way that our temperatures have been fluctuating. One goes out in a thin jacket one day and is totally unprepared the next day for the cold. Oh well, it is only about 6 weeks until the first day of winter. Dare I say that word?
This morning I saw the plastic surgeon and I'm booked this Thursday to have a synovial (caused by osteoarthritis) cyst removed. It shouldn't take long and will require a few stitches. Luckily it is on my left hand.
After lunch, I did this little paint sketch of a small stalk of sedum, Autumn Joy, from my front walkway. It is the only real bit of color left in the yard right now.
