In continuing my efforts to source more of my own inspiration I have another color palette I've created. It's feeling decidedly autumnal here in Minnesota, with temps staying in the 50s during the day. It seems like overnight the zinnias are too bright and the pink cosmos look out of place. I love fall here and it's time for some new colors. I took this photo in our backyard last fall. We only seem to see bluebirds here when they must be migrating so we often spot them in the late summer/early fall. This guy was hanging out by our pond and I thought he looked striking in and among the yellow leaves.
