October delights

Tossed last year’s store bought gourds on my compost pile so was delighted that my compost pile sprouted some mini gourds…I think I’m ready for fall. My table topper catching the light using my Samsung Galaxy III.

  1. It would be hard to choose a favorite among these three, Laura. Hard to improve on the original, but the artist in me appreciates the gouache. And what a nice surprise to get these “volunteers”. I’m nursing some grains that have sprung up under the bird feeder–think they’ll enjoy the seed.

  2. I love “volunteer” seedlings too…my whole garden is now full of volunteer trees.
    I like the gouache effect…will have to play with it too!
    And I love the light effect in the original…

  3. I am guessing that you can’t get any more fertile than a compost pile. The gourds seem to have flourished and your pictures are wonderful. Lucky you … or maybe I should say smart you. Great job …
