So, it’s fall again…

Festival MapLet happiness abound. My favorite season has arrived at last! And, by the way… have I ever mentioned how much I *l-o-v-e* pumpkins? Well, I do. And so does the little forest creature who ate mine the very same night I got it from the Fall Festival. SIGH.

Well, I’m sure I will get another one (pumpkin, not creature), since it’s still so early in the season — not from my own pumpkin plant that’s been attempting to grow in a lovely little container in my garden since May, of course. No, that one hasn’t produced anything other than pretty golden yellow blossoms all summer long. SIGH.

Not that I’m bitter about it. I mean… my Heinz tomato plant was also an under-achiever. And my mom’s tomato plant (which is huge now) only sprouted two small tomatoes — which I didn’t even get to taste because… I had to turn them over to my mother. (She thought they were cute.)

Of course the obvious (and oblivious?) common denominator in my garden was: Me. Not much of a gardener, I suppose. Not that I’ll stop trying or anything. (I’m pretty good at growing green onions. They just keep growing and growing… no matter how many times I chop them down. Yay, green onions!)

Maybe next year I’ll have better luck. I’ve probably just been buying the wrong kind of dirt and/or fertilizer for the past two years, or something.

Anyway… Here are my pics and vids from this year’s Fall Festival. Enjoy!

Or just listen to this…

And, yes… it was a little gloomy that day. (Have I ever mentioned how much I *l-o-v-e* rain?)
