  1. Huh, I never knew what a rose hip looked like. So glad to finally have a visual. And holy cow on the carrot. That’s a meal for a whole rabbit warren right there. Tempting I bet.
    Beautiful pictures–so many of them make me incredibly nostalgic for the Midwest.

    • That was a vitamin C++ rose hip. Huge for them. Carrot may not have been pretty, but it ate just fine 😉
      Thanks for enjoying the photos! Lots of seed heads on the way. Not as exciting, but cool in thier own way. 🌾🍁

  2. First. It must be hubby holding the carrot or else you were having a no nail polish day.
    Second why is it called Rattlesnake Master? There are a lot of myths about plants that deter snakes. I always wonder if there is truth in any of them. Here in Oz farmers used to plant a hedge of wormwood around the house to stop snakes.
