Bald Cypress Cone Hunting

I want to grow a few bald cypress' for my yard next spring,
so we went cone hunting Saturday.
 The bald cypress is so named because it is one of the few cypress'
that loose their leaves in the fall
My source tree. Lovely orange fall color- though most of the leaves are gone.
This tree is loaded - no climbing though, tons of cones were already on the ground. 
Cones are small and sticky, smelling strongly of turpentine. Seeds are the amber colored chunks inside the broken cone.
I think I got enough - maybe...
I'll plant them now, letting winter do the stratifying for me and have little saplings by spring!

Halloween Hoots

My daughter made us some Owl cupcakes the other night. They are almost too cute to eat- but we are getting over that. They are delicious!

She made the chocolate cupcakes from scratch but all you need are:

Enough frosted cupcakes to make everybody happy
Oreos
fall colored M&M's

Just split your Oreos, place two on cupcakes, add M&M's in the right places and cut the left over top part of the Oreo in two and place as eyebrows.
Easy Peasy!

Puffy Humming Birds

Our Morning temps have been dipping into the 40's all month. The poor little humming birds are puffed up trying to stay warm and staying close to the feeders. This little girl stayed at the feeder all morning.
I have an itch...
waiting for a turn at the feeder

still waiting...

Froggy Hibiscus



A Grey Green tree frog on a freshly opened hibiscus flower, sat still long enough for me to snap about a dozen pictures. It had just finished raining- couldn't have asked for a more perfect photo opportunity!

 This is what happens when you don't thin your carrot seedlings.
