Every fall near Halloween, I put this pumpkin-on-a-popsicle-stick somewhere in my decor. It's a must: Phil made it when he was in Kindergarten. I'm so glad I kept it.
I'm still photographing my neighbor's maple tree almost every day. The color change is nothing short of brilliant. Unfortunately, we're supposed to get our first freeze Friday night, with temps going down to 28F! I have a feeling the leaves will start falling off shortly after that.
We got this old ladder free from a neighbor who left it curbside. I dragged it out of the garage the other day and decided to use it on the side of the house for visual height. Found the mini mums at Walmart for under $2 each.
Now that I'm looking closely at this photo, I'm laughing...one of the mini pumpkins is missing from that tin container. I'm sure a squirrel was the culprit. My marigolds are still hanging in there but looking straggly, I know.
A little unrelated side note: I am feeling fantastic on this low FODMAP diet that I talked about in my last post. It is amazing how quickly this worked for me. I will talk more about it later in another post. Just wanted to give you an update.
