Last year around this time, the BRD and her Beau Jack went to a Halloween party. She had a single pumpkin outside her front door. When they returned from the party they found the pumpkin smashed to smithereens, probably by some disappointed trick-or-treater. Being the BRD, she just swept the detritus off into a garden area. This year here's what those abandoned seeds have produced.
Meanwhile over at our house the Pampas grass is really flying its freak flag these days.
That plant has grown to 7 or 8 feet tall this year.
Yes, autumn is in the air. Even if the temperature is still climbing to the upper 80's every day.
