Even though our temperatures are still saying summer, there are some signs of autumn popping up around town. Sweet Peas Garden Shop in the suburb of Homewood is spreading the news. If you want an everyday, run of the mill orange pumpkin just stop by the grocery store. But, if you are looking for pumpkins (gourds?) with a little pizazz, you better beat it over to Sweet Peas. I snuck up on their porch while they were closed yesterday and snapped a few photos for you before they got picked over. I think I might have just found my next banner photo !
Thanks for all the comments yesterday regarding the pros and cons of the lowly but ever so tasty OKRA. Rumor has it that I might be the new commissioner of the Okra Council of Alabama!
A special note: Congratulations to our friend Olivier from Evry, France Daily Photo. The city of Evry has honored him with a lovely exhibition of his photographs during their Heritage Day celebration. His photos are displayed along the road leading to the Seine. Please visit his site today and see his video and photos of the installation. Bravo Olivier!
