Yard Stuff

We've been going through another hot spell here-100+ degrees-so I've been paying attention to the watering schedule a little more than usual. The pumpkins were planted at the end of May, since last year they weren't ready at Halloween. I saved the seeds from some pumpkins I bought at the store, so though I have six different varieties, I can only tell you the names of two or three of them. I bought some seeds, too: Wyatt's Wonder, Jack, and Howden. I have mini pumpkins, a tall, oblong varitey, and a medium-sized round type. Here they are, in progress!
A side-trip to the front yard to prune roses gave me a bit of a start. I caught a glimpse of color in the tree, and took a closer look:
Yup. Fall is absolutely on its way.
I feel like I have to apologize for the posts being so short lately. Every day, I've been out in the studio, working on projects, and the days zip by like a streaker on a football field. I'm not a fast builder, so everything seems to take more time than I think it will. School starts for me on the 22nd, so even less time will be available. I have an actual academic class added to my art class, so there will actually be some serious study going on! I need to keep my "A" average up!


  1. Pumpkins!!! And you had a frog a while back...I am feeling right at home :D

    Lovely pictures!


  2. I super jealous I never got mine in the ground. Yours are looking good, and good luck with school.

  3. Your pumpkins appear to be growing beautifully. Now I'm worried about mine!
