Autumn Harvest and a little contest

Got our first frost the night of November 1st so we harvested the squash on the 2nd.  Pretty, isn't it.

It is a combination of Sweet Meat and Hubbard from cross pollinated seeds that we saved from last years squash.  Oh, I see another little zucchini snuck into the photo.

Not sure what this is but I'm calling it Blood Berries.   It looked like drops of blood on the forest floor.

The frost and the wind really brought the maple leaves down suddenly.  Here are Tonka and Sadie rustling through them in front of my house.


I know what this is but I'm wondering if anyone else can identify it.  If you do, you win a prize, to be chosen later.  The first person to identify it wins a piece of my art work.  So don't enter if you don't like my art;-)

Be well.

Well, it looks very much like my Gunnera Manicata seedhead - mine is just starting to slowly collapse into compost.

What do you mean 'don't like your art' !!!!

I have no idea what it is, I don't get let out much you know. You're not seriously thinking there's someone out there who doesn't like your art are you? Okay, let me make a guess. Is it a green thingy with bumps?

I agree with Emma but, I'm not the first give the answer!

If people follow your blog, surely they must at least LIKE your art, never mind LOVE it? LOL!

Have a great weekend,

The first thought a kaktus, but I could also imagine from a needle tree the first outcoming of the needles, but this would more happen in spring.
Alles Liebe
