OH, GREAT PUMPKIN, HEAR MY PLEA



Oh, Great Pumpkin, hear my plea.  Give me the fortitude, tenacity, and toned gluts to make it through all of the yucky restorative and custodial  gardening necessary to create a landscape befitting your arrival.  Help me be patient with my overseeding, tolerant of high winds and unseasonal heat, mindful of residual nails and debris from re-roofing, and calm in the  face of dead ground cover.  Let your orange brilliance bring joy and autumnal grandeur to us all, and may your prices be reasonable and within my budget.  (Cause I want a lot of them.)

Amen.

  2. We can't decorate with pumpkins & gourds outdoors, the squirrels and bear(s) go after them! I can't wait until our leaves start to change color, I love autumn!

  3. Oh my goodness, what an autumn paradise! is it because we're in Oklahoma, or is this time of year so glorious everywhere? REALLY beautiful photos, what a fantastic inspiration as we get going in the garden in 2012~ : )
