Corners of my ... garden

Although I love fall, I am not in a rush. Summers here are much too short so I want to enjoy it as long as possible. As I took my walk, though, I could see that fall will soon be upon us. The pears are ripening on my little pear tree...

Over the weekend I harvested the few pumpkins we had and some gourds...well they were supposed to be gourds, but I think they cross pollinated with the pumpkins. Next year I must remember not to plant them side by side...

The allysum and morning glories by the barn are in their final glory...

This little garden is just filling out....

And I know fall is near because I have begun to think about knitting. In fact, I found two patterns from Knitty that I can't wait to try ~ a hat for my husband [long overdue] and some 'Fetching' cabled fingerless gloves because I love fingerless gloves. I think tonight I will browse the yarn catalogs...

  3. Those gourds are scarey. I was going to plant some this year but I'll plant them well away from the pumpkins. Don't you love late summer and early autumn when your fingers just itch to do some knitting. Have fun.

  5. Loved your pictures...I, too, am trying to hold on to summer as long as possible. After all, I live at a place called Snowball Hill and for good reason too!

  7. I relly like the pumkins! We don't have such things growing in our gardens in Norway.
