This is a wonderful time of year. Unfortunately Halloween is over but there's still lots of autumn fun to be had before that long season that follows.
The Halloween Band's farewell tour. Seen here at Watson's where some of these pictures were taken.
This had to come to my classroom to go with the book The Bumpy Little Pumpkin. Although it's not particularly little, it sure is bumpy!
Ooh, that cool blue squash is a stunning base for an autumn arrangement.
The convergence of holidays in nurseries is delightful!
On a nursery visit during which I picked up a few ornamental cabbage/kale plants, the Tom remarked, "You sure go through a lot of those. Do they die or something?" Fascinating that he noticed what I'd bought in previous years and kind of funny that he didn't know that these only last a season. Non gardeners, go figure.
Do you grow kale/cabbage for winter color?
Long after the mums are gone, the kale and cabbage will be coloring our winter gardens all the way through spring if the slugs don't eat them all first.
Fall bulbs, the promise of spring, and evergreen pots to carry us through the bleak season.
Does this outfit make my hips look big?
The wettest October on record brought with it a lot of mushrooms!
And a dandelion that simply won't stop blooming!
Time to snuggle up beside a nice warm fire and enjoy being inside.
