Just A Few Things.............Pumpkin What?

With the leaves changing and the grass drying out, it’s really starting to feel like winter will soon be knocking at our doors. 

Temperatures did heat up to the 80’s yesterday and 90’s today.

Last night I had so much energy before bed (I blame the earlier glasses of non decaffeinated iced tea); I decided to make several pint jars of homemade apple butter, and 3 loaves of fresh, homemade, pumpkin bread.


While waiting for the bread to bake, I piddled a little and cleaned off our desk in the living room.  Actually, I worked on the computer until after 3AM, when I finally felt as if it was time to go to bed.  I still blame the 3 glasses of tea at lunch time.  

Mental note to self…………..DON’T DRINK ICED TEA WITH CAFFINE AFTER 11:00 AM…………………………………..

I was up early on Sunday, finished up laundry, and Bulldog Man and I went into town to The Home Depot Store.  We needed to pickup caulk to seal the windows to the brick, for further insulation, since winter will soon be knocking.  While there, we came across this silly tree and I thought I would share it with you. 

This is a pumpkin tree (Solanum Integrifolim), also known as pumpkin on a stick, or pumpkin bunch.  The pumpkins are not edible.  It makes for a great live decoration; and grows to about three to four feet tall with large thorns on the leaves and stem.
I’ve never seen one of these pumpkin tree’s before, have you?
