Yesterday, I noticed the leaves on the pumpkin vines wilting. I really thought I was done watering this year, and if frost looked to be imminent, I would be. But instead, it looks like we're in for a heat wave. This is very good news for the underdeveloped pumpkins.
Actually, I didn't think there was all that much on those vines. But the wilted leaves revealed that there is plenty of treasure to be had. So I was watering last night and early this morning and I'll be out there again this evening giving everyone a good dose. Those leaves perked up almost immediately!
During the hot parts of the day though, there is time for some crafting and decorating. The fabric pumpkins below are especially dear to me. They are made from a worn loved one's sweater. The stems are dried from last year's pumpkin crop and I just love the acorn dangle. The other is just a bit of décor. I have so much fun decorating this hutch for every season. It lends itself perfectly to just about anything!
