Crowded on a velvet cushion...


“I was something that lay under the sun and felt it, like the pumpkins, and I did not want to be anything more. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge.”

Willa Sibert Cather


“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion”

Henry David Thoreau



Yesterday my mom asked if the pumpkins in the early posting were mine...yes but from last year. Here are this years early pumpkins...they are ripening even before the tomatoes. Self sown from last years crop.
