Pumpkins and Berries

Some long promised photos of Buster wearing the cute pumpkin hat originally knitted for his cousin by my sister's good friend Ltg Llama. Sorry it took so long, sis!


In other plant life news, I drove by our old house on the way to an errand and noticed a change in the front yard. For years, we feared the coming of winter because the big tree in the city-controlled sidewalk landscaping would shed berries. Lots of berries. Berries that would get smashed underfoot by all the pedestrians and children walking to the nearby school.

Every weekend or so, we'd go outside to scrape squished berries off the pavement and dump the resulting muck in the greens bin. Pretty annoying, but we figured it was out of our control and just did it. When we moved, we high-fived that our berry disposal days were over and left the scraper tool to the New Owners.

Well, the New Owners were smarter than we were, because they must have had the city come out and remove the offender. As I drove by, I saw a cute little tree in its place. I guess it pays to ask!

I just sent the post to Ltg Llama. She did such a nice job with the hat.

We had something the same experience with a large metal montiroing box on our front lawn at the old house - then the real estate agent asked, and it was gone! Way upped the curb appeal, that's for sure.

And may I say how adorable the microdude is looking these days? I hadn't seen a clseup for a while and he is delicious!

He looks great in the hat! Thanks for the pic :-) I had no idea that babies' heads were getting bigger. Though with my sister's kids wearing adult hats at 2 years old, you'd think I'd get a clue!
