Ah, fall fruits...

The geraniums get one more go at it after almost succumbing to the Texas summer heat and sun's flames.
The lantana plants are pushing out berries that look like tiny clumps of ripening grapes.
And the prickly cacti bear their ripening peach-colored "pears".


Love it.

I've never seen a cactus in full bloom.

Thanks so much for signing up to follow my blog. You make number 50, and that's a nice, round number! You'll find my blog a little on the slow side this month. I'm busy at the race track, where the racing season will end the first part of December. Gotta get those horses whose racing careers are over into new homes! I'll pick up in posting after that, I promise.

Meanwhile, I now have a lovely new blog to read. Love your header photo!

We received our first wet snow this morning -- so I'm drooling at your garden right now. Only six more months to wait until I can see that type of activity again! Yippee!

What a comment you have just left at gallimaufry! Though I am busy cleaning house today, I have stopped to sit down and feel the hands of sorority span an ocean...your comment was a gift to me; to know there are others who dare to live life passionately despite carrying a hole of homesickness in their heart.

I have four children, too...but only four critters (two birds and two guinea pigs, though we wish we had a dog and a horse like you!) :)

Bless you, Texas friend!

The pictures all look great. Everything is growing really great here too now that it has cooled off some. Soon the frost will come and that will be it.

I love it, too! My Mexican petunia finally bloomed its pretty purple blossoms and my perennials have all caught a second wind.

I crave some of these gorgeous fruits. Wish it grew in my backyard or even in my country too. Have the loveliest of weekends! xxxx
