Autumny and pretty if you ask me.

Frosty mornings! Aren’t these the coolest icicle-mushrooms??

More pops of autumn yellow. I’ll admire every single one of them while they last.

In other words: we are not the type of gardeners who clear the garden and tidy it for winter. We admire the decay and leave the leaves for the critters to hide under.

Nature’s magnificent. On the one hand, I am in awe of anything spore & fern related. On the other hand, the sight of it triggers my trypophobia like nobody’s business. So why is nature magnificent? Because I can be nauseous and still admire beauty at the same time.

Seconds after I took this pic, a family of small critters crept out of their hiding place. That hiding place being the red strawberry. I decided against eating that one. Smart move, right?

If aliens do exist, I think they might look like these nigella seed pods.

Look at those leaves, do they look healthy to you? The plums, are those little lumps signs of disease or wasps? We fear we may have yet another sad/bad plum year upon us. Is there a plum doctor in the house?

We went out hiking last week and came across this wondrous seed. But what is it???

Are there any gardeners/foragers around who can give us tips on making lime tree tea or cordial? The intense heady fragrance is so seductive. When would be the best time to harvest them, now?
EDIT: A pro-tip from @miekje1402 is to keep an eye on the pollinators. When you see them buzzing around a particular tree, you know that tree is full of blooms ready for the picking!
