50 lb. Squash

We grew 4 of these in the garden.  50 pounders each.  It tastes so so good.  
 Half filled up the apple box.
 We baked some and made the very best Squash soup.  YUM!

I like the patterns on the leaves of the Hardy Cyclamen.

 Each bunch is a little different.

More Apples

We picked some more apples yesterday.  These are Akane Apples.  They are so crisp the juice runs down your chin---well my chin anyway.   Next apples to be ripe are the Jonagolds and the Spartans.  Ohhh YUM!!

 Two big boxes from one small tree.
 And a nice little gift basket
 We picked some Italian Prunes too.  They are sooo good.

One of my favorite flowers

 I love Gazania.  It comes in a variety of color and some are even striped.  Mostly shades of orange and yellow, red and Bronze.  A drought tolerant plant that blooms when the sun is out.  We have had 3 months of lots of sun so this guy has really put on a great show.  It is native to South Africa.

Blue Moon?

Last night was a 'Blue Moon".  Well it isn't really blue and it isn't made of blue cheese either.  Too many different meanings as of why.  Why not Google it and find your own reason.

 Taken last night around 8:15 PDT
