Here comes fall. I might as well embrace it.
Our sumac tree is doing its usual fall color explosion.
I love this tree and I would love it even more if it didn't sucker up everywhere in the yard.
But I think it's worth it for this kind of brilliancy.
Even the peony foliage is showing color this time of year.
Our dogwood comes up with some great red color for fall.
It just happens to be located where I can keep track of its progress from the kitchen window.
A bit anyway.
Our fall crocus are blooming. Kylie at Our Little Acre has a great post about harvesting the saffron which I should try.
Our monkshood or aconitum, a gift from Lynda at My Boise Life is doing well.
Kim had this harvest from his single pumpkin vine this year.
And I got this idea from reading the Hen Cam blog.
Peanut really dug into that pumpkin. Might be a great way to rid your pumpkins of all that inner slime/seeds.
