SEEN THIS WEEK within the backyard (and initially posted on @awaytogarden Instagram):

My “egocentric crabapple,” selection ‘Ralph Shay’ (above, with little bluestem grass), whose fruits are approach too massive when nonetheless agency for birds to reckon with or steal, so I get to take a look at them nicely into winter, therefore the egocentric label. After many freeze-thaw cycles they soften, and late-winter flocks of robins or waxwings have at them because the fruit lastly yields. We each win, every in our time. The eight smaller-fruited crabs up within the hill? They’re already largely picked over by migrants who handed by in September and October. #awaytogarden #crabapple #birdfood #littlebluestem

fallen pear, fallen leaves

SAID THE literary leaves and a equally well-read heart-shaped pear (quoting Hawthorne): “I can’t endure to waste something so treasured as autumnal sunshine by staying in the home.” #awaytogarden #nathanielhawthorne

‘I’M DREAMING of a white Halloween, identical to those we didn’t used to know…” (Come to think about it that’s extra of a nightmare than a dream. Somebody hasn’t carried out her fall cleanup but. Oops!) #awaytogarden #panicmode
