A Still Life...

As I mentioned in the last post, I am not a quilter.  Well, I am not an artist or a photographer either.  I hope this photo shows up well.  I went out to the garden to see what I could find to put in a stir-fry for our supper and came back with the front of my shirt piled with these items... a couple green tomatoes, one small paste tomato (which I promptly ate), flat-leaved parsley, a little broccoli and some fresh basil.

As it was sitting there on the cutting board, it just looked so beautiful and I realized, aha!  That must be how "still life" paintings were born.  Someone(s) just happened to have such a lovely scene on their table and decided it would make a nice painting.

Just some early Autumn musings...


  1. I agree, that is beautiful. Isn't it inspiring to just notice beauty?

    1. Yes, it is. Simple things sometimes just grab my attention and make me so grateful.
