AUTUMN'S FIRST WAVE

Walking through Missouri's woods
shows the first signs of 
autumn color.

Mostly yellows and oranges
make up the first wave of
seasonal foliage.

But the show has definitely begun.

OKRA AND TOMATOES

Both are in their prime right now.

So, they're meant to be 
combined, right?

Exactly!

Sauteed, with olive oil,
onion, peppers.
On rice.

Yum!

TWO OLD BARNS

Why would anyone ever
tear down an old barn?

They give so much more
than they take.

So beautiful.

BLAZE AT DUSK

Recent evening fire in the sky
reminds me of the
    classic sailor's warning . . .

Red sky at night,
sailor's delight.
Red sky in morning,
sailor's warning.

DON'T BLAME
THIS GOLDEN BEAUTY

It's that time of the year.

Goldenrod is flowering,
especially in Missouri's farmland.

And it's all too often blamed
for late summer allergies,
but it's ragweed that's the culprit,
not goldenrod.

So enjoy the golden fields,
especially now.

Just don't give goldenrod
a bum rap.
(It won't make you sneeze.)

IT'S THAT TIME
OF THE YEAR

It was a good year for pumpkins.

 Now if we can just get
      the hot weather to leave . . .

Autumn is getting close!

WHEN UGLY IS BEAUTIFUL

When it comes to 
home-grown tomatoes,
perfection is not so obvious.

Ugly tomatoes are the ones
to look for.

"Ugly" is now a registered variety,
and are favored as preferred for taste.

Ugly tomatoes are heirloom tomatoes
that do not grow with the same uniform beauty
that many hybrids strive to possess.

Irregular, misshapen fruits
with impeccable flavor and taste --
that's when ugly is better!

Now you know!

STUMP STASH

If you came across a stump,
so inviting . . .



What would you
leave behind?

Gum wrapper?
Lucky penny?

You'd be much more
selective, right?

STORMS DON'T GET
MUCH BIGGER

A view from the Space Station
shows how massive a storm
Florence has become.

And it hits the east coast today.

For those residents who have
decided to stick it out,
the real danger is not the winds,
it's the tidal surge and
intense rains that follow.

Most deaths from hurricanes
are caused by drownings,
from the surge of water that follows.

Our prayers go out for the millions
of U.S. residents  affected by
this monster storm.

MUMS THE WORD

All of a sudden,
mums are everywhere.


PERRENIAL ASTERS, TOO

They're the flowers of autumn.
Pick up a pot or two.

Show your colors.

BEAUTIFUL DAY
AT THE GARDEN

Sunshine and cool weather
made it a perfect 
"mental health" break day
at Missouri Botanical Garden.

Water lilies and Chihuly 
floating onions made the
reflection pools a
perfect composition.

ALEX TREBEK
NOW MORE DISTINGUISHED

Don't you think?

To kick off the new season of Jeopardy,
Alex grew a a beard!

Can you believe this quiz program
is starting its 35th season?

I'm addicted, that's for sure.
