Or a fine fall morning; just enough cool and lots of sunshine. Found a few last tomatoes that the deer haven't eaten. Love them.
The acorns are in abundance this year and the deer are coming right up to the house eating them. They are also crunching underfoot on all the patios and walkways. Slightly annoying.
The pomegranates are just about ripe for the picking. In fact, I don't even know how to tell if they are ripe or not.
After nearly losing my entire greenhouse full of citrus last winter due to the propane tank running out, a few are fruiting. Here is a Buddha's Hand citron, the oldest known citrus going back thousands of years.
Here are the turmeric and ginger plants I started in early summer. The turmeric is nearly three feet tall. I don't like the taste of turmeric, though I take it in capsule form daily. My daughter will get those. I am interested to see how many tubers have formed in both.
There are so many frogs and toads this year. From the size of your pinkie fingernail to bull frog size, these little guys have taken over my goldfish pond. They hide under the lily pads or sun themselves on top.
They are actually very stealthy - cat like in the way they stalk their prey. Horseflies and insects buzz around for a sip of water. The frogs sit and wait, but sometimes they move like a cat then leap. A wasp landed on me and I slapped it and it landed in the water. It began to swim when a toad ate it. No reaction from the toad. Didn't blink an eye nor move its mouth. I guess the wasp didn't sting it or else the toad is immune to its sting.
I think these tree frogs are my favorite. Not quite two inches in length, they camouflage themselves to what they rest upon.
Well, there you have it. Not even a cute toad limerick. Just a beautiful morning.
