Yes indeed, the colors are beginning to change...time to hang up the "Autumn Greetings" sign, put out the spooky stuff, and enjoy the scent of damp and rot in the air! God I love fall..yes, I do!! The colors are hot and dark and full and rich...chocolate soil,.. gold, scarlet and purple leaves....still plenty of green though and even those are deepening their painterly colors.

Bloggers I follow are sharing their joy of the season...Thomas' purple tomatillo salsa at A Growing Tradition, Mango Cheeks plum and ginger crumble meltingly comforting at Allotment 2 Kitchen, Niki's fantastic gourds at Year Round Veggie Garden which despite all odds have given a bumper crop to share with her community. Well...isn't that the root or rather the fruit, of autumn...this bountiful gift of being able to, recipes, seeds, and simple joy.

Oh it's going to be a great season)))...can you feel it!!

"Find your Bliss"..Andy at Kensho Studio quoted this in a recent post.'s MY bliss right now))).


  1. I love all the photos you've taken with your lovely pattypan squash! How many plants did you grow and any guesses to how many squash you harvested in total? :)

  2. Love the sign on the gate---do you change it for each season? Also like the spider graphic. Very cool, Bren, and glad you are following your bliss!*

    *A great term I first heard from Joseph Campbell.

  3. As you know, I have mixed feelings about autumn, Brenda. I love the asters, the grasses, the colourful foliage and the richness of harvest. We just need to focus on those things, right?

  4. Hi Brenda, love your garden gate also. Everything looks so nice. Very cool squash photo.
