Autumn Blooming Flowers 9-22-2016

One cannot manage too many affairs: like pumpkins in the water, one pops up while you try to hold down the other. Chinese Proverb

Not sure why you’d be holding down pumpkins, however see what I found blooming in 201320142015

  1. I thought the same as I saw the mushroom :o) sadly this year is not a good one for mushrooms, too much heat :o( but it’s anyway better when I buy my mushrooms, I’m not eggs-pert on that front and it was probably more luck than eggs-pertise, that we landed only one time at the er :O)

  2. What a year for flowering, eh! This crazy weather in the last number of seasons has meant we’re having a mini second-Spring of sorts in NTX, and I can imagine you’re experiencing something of the same, from what I see. Different challenges in different climatic years!
