Happy October

This is a reminder of the beautiful weather we had last week. This week has been different!

Here's Emily harvesting her catnip.

This came from some mixed sunflower seeds. It is the first time I've had one like this. Under all that fluff is a full sunflower seedhead! I didn't expect that.

I'll be away from the keyboard for some days. I'm looking forward to catching up with you then. And you know you'll be seeing Petunia's Pumpkins soon!

Hi there~
I wanted to thank you for letting me know about the garden get together in Seattle...I was unable to make it!:(
I too love sunflowers! I had two of the kind on your bottom picture. My 4yr old brought them home last mothers day(from preschool) seedlings in a paper cup...
Great slug picture too!

Hi! I recently introduced a website related to backyards and gardens and will be including information about all sorts of topics related to making your outdoor space more personal, fun, functional and relaxing. I came across your site and thought we could both benefit by exchanging links, since our topics are related. You can check out my site at It is fairly new so it doesn’t have a ton of content yet, but will be a great informational resource as time goes on.

If you are interested in exchanging links on our sites, please let me know. If you would prefer a link from a site with higher page rank, I have another site as well (a more general site) and can provide that link instead.
