My son thinks he is going to be a 'millionaire' after filling the garden cart full of Osage oranges he harvested from the woods. I guess these fall bloomers can be found on ebay for up to $4 a piece?! They are fun to display next to pumpkins and gourds and are said to keep spiders away.
Collection of color from the Ornamental Pear (Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer')
The Ornamental Pear trees has been a favorite of mine for many years. I first fell in love with them in our little city garden when we lived in town. These pretty spring flowering trees lined the streets of that cute little 'Norman Rockwell' town we lived in. This dwarf tree stand more upright then the Bradford Pear and who can resist the color display she is putting on this second week in November.
This could be my favorite photo in November with the blue peeking through the wide range of leaf color on that pear tree. (image to the left).

I will return later in the day with some photos from the Greenhouse that you won't want to miss - C'ya then!
