Wonders of fall, while growing up on a honey farm:
|The wooly worm wiggling through the leaves|
|Osage Orange "Balls" -perfect for gathering, throwing in the stream,|
and keeping the spiders away (as the old wives' tale goes)
|"Look, they're everywhere!! Where do they come from?"|
"Look, up, Maizy... where do you think?"
|Endless trips to the bridge to throw the Osage Orange overboard|
"Look, mine's floating!"
|Fall sun in the sandbox.|
|Learning to build bee boxes with daddy.|
|Mason gracefully took his turn and learned how|
important it is to keep the fingers away. Ouch!
|Uncle Perry installs a new slate floor in the mud-room addition.|
|100 year old kitchen floors...|
|... become new floors out of reclaimed 100 year old|
oak barn wood.
|A first place prize for art work in the pre-school section|
at the Pumpkin Show!
|The sun on the honeysticks at market.|
|The re-growth of buckwheat after the first harvest went|
to seed and was tilled under for cover crop. Sorry, bees,
it will likely not bloom before the frost.
